~ Ice ~ Frustrations ~ Sticky Buns! ~

Good 29ยบ morning. Ice on everything out there. 
The trampoline, barn roof, and Mr. Frog. Burrrrr.....
At least the hummer feeders aren't frozen!
Looks like we are in for some more weather...
Yesterday was most frustrating. I worked on the toilet tank thingy for an hour and never could get it loose. Even broke a fingernail in the process. In exasperation I called Tim. He will be over some time today. Sigh....  THEN the garbage disposal locked up and wouldn't work. I hunted and hunted and found an allen wrench and got it unstuck, finally!  That was about the extent of my exciting day.
I'm a little irritated with myself, as I forgot to put the card in my camera after taking off some pictures. Maggie and I had taken the trash out, put the can on the road, and stopped by Dave and PJ's. We fed the koi fish
in the big outside tank and I took some good pictures of them. DARN! Next time.
Stacked wood on the porch and experimented with cornbread mix with added chilies and Mexi-corn and cooked it in the waffle iron. Came out quite tasty. I put some pats of butter on the waffle before it finished cooking. Yummy. Then I heated some spicy refried beans and spread some of the bean mixture on the waffle. GOOD!  We had a roaring fire and watched TV. (Sizzling, huh? !)
