Terrific Times This Thursday!

Last Update: January 20, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

Kitty and I slept late, getting out from under the foot-thick layer of blankets to be greeted by an outdoor temperature of a mere 7 degrees Fahrenheit! This also meant that we got a late start diving into the Wealthy Affiliate Community!


Kitty didn't seem to be too upset about it though!

When we finally finished that, I ventured outdoors to notice that the sun was out--thankfully--and that there were beautiful images to be captured!



I decided right then and there to start up the Jeep and let it run a little, since I did not do that at all yesterday!

The on board thermometer told the grim tale, but with the sun beating on the glass and hardly any wind, it didn't seem that bad!

When I went back inside the eBay house, I fired up both of my makeshift, ever-evolving candle heaters!

They warm my hands alright, but the radiant heat still leaves a bit to be desired, but I am constantly refining them! With these in place now, I can perform my daily Wealthy Affiliate research a bit more comfortably!

While, I continue to struggle a bit dealing with the colder temperatures, I still get that warm feeling of accomplishment, especially when I keep thinking of another glorious Spring right around the corner! Besides, I am a survivor!

As an update to yesterday's post, Monica also showed up last night to pick me up and take me so I could get groceries! I also seriously enjoyed her company too!

We were there about 40 minutes! She took this selfie of us at the check out!

I left the eBay house to go to the locksmith shop house, but also had to run an errand first! The next images are from that trip!



When I arrived there, I took an image of the sun! The tree there had it in its grasp!

Then I unloaded more boxes of used locks from the jeep and found several ones that I can sell!

I also washed some dishes from the eBay house, and then finally took another shower! I felt very refreshed afterwards!

I started the back-up car and let it run for about 15 minutes! All good, so far!

When I got ready to leave, I took another image of the sun heading to the horizon to close out another successful day!

Then I drove back to the eBay house to finish up this post, and to also do more work on clearing away the fireplace! Our high temperature made it up to 17 degrees Fahrenheit!

I will, of course, also be on the computer for most of the evening, as well!

I'll leave you all with another past Blog Dog image until Monica furnishes me with some new ones!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE ENJOYED AN EXCELLENT THURSDAY (ANOTHER FRISATSU EVE). I KNOW THAT, DESPITE THE LOW TEMPS, I MANAGED TO, AS WELL!

Jeffery,
With a pained heart I read what you are facing. I admire your courage. You have a WA family that stands behind you whatever you need to do. Yes, some believe that God cares what happens to you. He will answer the prayers of those who trust Him.
All I can offer to warm your room is a warm heart. Are you without heat because of storm damage? I can feel that 7 F. temp! I am glad you have an inventive mind to create warmth in various ways.

I pray for both you and Monica. God can change minds and hearts. He never forces. But He loves both of you intensely, and wants the best for both in the LONG RUN. Hurry up, SPRING!

Thank you, Shirley! It is GREAT to know that my WAmily will always have my back! This vibrant community is what makes WA great, IMHO!

With enough warm heart the eBay house will be very hot, indeed!

I'm without heat because when Monica and I got married, the house was packed full of eBay inventory, the plumbing needed replacement, the gas furnace and water heater needed to be replaced. So, I saved several Thousand $$ in water bills and gas service bills!

For it to truly be habitable again , it needs walls knocked out and new appliances and much more--a complete remodel and upgrade honestly!

I bought us a three bedroom mobile home for $16 K, and that is where we resided!

I trust wholeheartedly in God, and good things will eventally happen all according to His will, not mine!

I hope Spring gets here SOON, but I also know that if God brings us to things, He will also bring us through them too!

Have an excellent Sunday, and an excellent start to the new week! I always appreciate your visits, my friend!

Hey there Bro,
I had to read all the news before responding.
Love the candle making, another through back adventure from sandcandles, ...circa 1975 ish:)
Communication is a good thing with Monica. Good news, and some smiles. One Day at a Time;)
A furnace! That a big step!
KITTY will really appreciate your kindnes:)
TTFN, Brudda!

Thanks, Sis, but, of course, Monica has thrown another wrench in the works again!

I don't know why I still try! I must love her, but I must tell you that I am about to give up!😳

Still I try to make Kitty and I's living arrangements better! So much to do, and so little time and resources to do it with, it seems! Winter needs to leave NOW!

Time does fly when you're busy, Bro.
Getting rid of the Blog Dogs, seems like a red flag for reconciliation, at least for now, Jeff.
Keep your head high and your integrity, and pray for the next right thing to do. Sometimes that is nothing.:)
You'll have your pals back! Kitty will learn about high places, too, just like Tig-Tig.
Meantime, let's think "Early Spring!"
My nose is raw from sneezing and blowing. Starving a cold, so Hot Ginger Ale is tonight's beverage.
Later, Bro! Take care! He's got this. ;)

Sadly, I have to agree, Sis! She needs to get rid of the Adult daughter and her beast, that would pave the way for reconciliation! Our whole world was turned upside down when she allowed all that to happen!

I like the selfie Monica took. I'm glad you had that time together. I'm not sure I would ever get out from under the covers if all I had was candle warmers in this cold weather. At least Kitty has all that fur to help her stay warm. I hope your Frisatsu is warmer.

I do too, Lynn! I'm also glad for our time together, and I am optimistic to an extent! There are, sadly still some deep seeded issue that we have that she is absolutely unwilling to address, and until we can come to terms on those, there is now way that we can reconcile! I'll meet her in the middle on everything, but she refuses to budge an inch! God is in control, I continue to pray, and everything is to be done accordingto His will, and not mine!

Getting out form under those covers is certainly an unwanted chore, but once I am moving about, things get better!

I hope you had an excellent day!

Have an even better Frisatsu, my friend!

My heart hurts for you, Jeff. I have to believe it is God's will for you and Monica to work things out. But it's not always that simple. So we keep praying.

My Frisatsu is going well so far. And I hope yours is too! Is it Spring yet?

Thank you for your kindness and prayers, Lynn! I keep praying too!

My Frisatsu is moving along! It felt like Spring today, but I know in my heart that there will likely be somore more nasty weather in February!

Have an enjoyable evening!

40 degrees Jeff!! That has been our high for the last couple of weeks.. and it happened to occur today!

But at least we don't reach the obscene low temps that you do more often than not!

A great start to Frisatsu indeed my friend!!

Steak, beer, Kitty, Humphrey, The Blog Dogs, Humphreys girlfriends and a couple more steaks for good measure.
Can't be bad Jeff. Emojis can tell a good story.

Emojis can definitely tell a good amusing story at times Bux!

But Jeff left out the normal obligatory 'salad' here to go with the ribeyes... 🥗🥗🥩🥩🤣

Gettin' kinda chilly there, Jeff. I watched a video the other day from some guy in Alaska where the temperature was -50 or so. He was showing what happens when you throw a bucketful of boiling water into the air - it vaporizes immediately.

Sometimes I wish we came equipped with a fur coat like Kitty...

I've actually done that Terry and it is an interesting experiment. Fun to watch :-)

That sounds awesome, Terry, although, I'm surprised the bucket of water didn't freeze BEFORE he threw it into the air!

If let my beard grown in, I would at least have my face covered! 🥶

I don't know if you've ever seen the TV show "Mythbusters", but in one episode they set out to prove or disprove the myth that if you took a piss in extremely cold weather, it would freeze before it hit the ground. They of course didn't take a pee on TV. They instead built a contraption to simulate taking a pee.

They couldn't get it to freeze.

Haha! I remember that show, I just didn't watch much of it, but that is hilarious, Terry!

I hope you have an excellent Frisatsu, my friend!
