Changing Quickly

Yesterday it was in the 70's
I sat on the deck, looked up at the sun
and enjoyed my lunch
Callie was barking and I
glanced down to the terrace and there was a young snake sunning.

Early this morning headed to town as it is predicted
temperature will drop all day.
70 degrees as I head to market for Kefir,
a few more items I might need in the next few days,
batteries and cat litter for icy steps....

Wood steps may be ice covered in the morning
 makes me uncomfortable and I usually go through
the garage to refill bird feeders.

Rain all day and at the moment 38 degrees.
Christmas cactus purchased last year
looks cheerful as it is beginning to bloom.

Looking forward to quiet time for a few days
and hopefully all will be well.....

Follow your instincts regarding ice and everything else. I think that people belittle us older folks when we are cautious, but that is wisdom listen.

Beautiful Christmas cactus. I love them; they always remind me of my grandmother, who had several over many years. And yes, do not risk falling on ice. (Tabor is right :-).)

Tabor, Oh yes, I seek wisdom hourly and try to listen :)
Pienolsole, thank you. In the past larger ones but this one is pretty...

I haven't had a Christmas Cactus for years and years. Maybe I will buy one, just for me. I put the rubber treads on my porch steps and they seem to work great--however--I have some snow/ice melt stuff that works great--I do not use salt!!! and I find kitty litter gets sticky.

Judy, do not know if I could put the rubber treads on the steps.
Sounds like a good idea.
Thank you
and stay warm...
