What a pity that this weather is so beastly for travelling around, because - really - it is so very beautiful viewed from inside, looking out. We are putting out our usual quantities of bird seed, nuts etc. and in addition platesful of scraps, raisins, suet etc. All of it is disappearing before our eyes.

What traffic there is is going past very slowly with a lot of wheel-spinning and wobbling across the lane. A stiff Northerly breeze is beginning to form which does not bode well for later in the day when more snow is forecast. Certainly, the best place to be is by the fire, which most of your messages suggest.

And speaking of messages I am most touched by your concern - both over my blog and through the post. Thank you all so much - it is so heartening. I have several friends who at present seem to me to be in a worse state than I am and that also gives me strength to be positive.

I shall now have a little tour round blogland, catching up on all your entries and leaving messages. What a wonderful place Blogland is - long may it continue to offer love and support all round. Have a good week.

Hello Pat,
Good to learn that all is back to normal although, like you it seems, I didn't even know you'd been on a helicopter ride. I've been having a few technical problems with my blog. I've just now found a piece of spam buried in an old post so maybe that'll fix it.
Good luck and good health!

Oh dear, I've been away and didn't know about your seizure, how scary. Glad to hear you are home and mending. Perfect time of year to hunker down and mend - healing thoughts to you.

Great to see that your spirits are still on the upside, Pat. A good attitude, as you know, is ninety percent of the battle. Have a good day!

Good to see you back blogging, Weaver. My brother had a seizure out of the blue last year, at least that's what the doctors determined. Beware of potent anti-seizure meds. Question everything. Here's blessings on your rest, all the way from California.

There was hoar frost on the trees this morning as we drove into town. It looked so beautiful I thought I would go out with the camera on our return. However, it had already disappeared though the temperature doesn't seemed to have risen. Typing this with cold fingers. Good to know you are up and doing, even if not out and about just yet. Take care and make haste slowly!

I was just thinking what a boon blogland must be if one is feeling a bit dull and isolated.
I have another blogger chum who has been under the weather and I think her blogfriends help her spirits.
So interested that your father shares my grandson's name. A nice old-fashioned manly one!

I do hope that this was a one-off event with your seizure! So glad to see that you didn't have to stop blogging completely! Sounds like our recent Pacific Northwest local freezing and snow episode blew over to your neck of the woods. Stay warm and cozy!

Oh, Weaver, so lovely to get your comment just now, and to see you back in blogland! We all love you here at Necky Knoll House!

Hope your Tesco deliveries are getting through, and that you have plenty of yummy food and cosy warmth.

So glad to see you up and blogging. Health reasons or not when the roads and weather is bad being home might be the best answer.

stay warm...
cheers, parsnip

I agree about blogland being a great bon to those of us who suddely are stuck inside for one reason or other. I have had a wonderful time trawling while waiting for my knee to get better enough to be more or less nomal again, another few days I hope.

Good plan, though I don't like the side effects of your medications. I am not at all happy that you have to give up driving as I know how socially active you like to be. I still hope it was some virus that will pass with time and you can have your license back.

Wishing you a speedy recovery while you watch the fascinating doings outside your window.

I am sorry to hear of your medical problems and hope you are recovering from the upset of all this. It sounds as though you are coping well with the practical effects. It will give you more time to be at home, reading and writing and enjoying your life.

You have put your finger on it exactly (as you always do): the up- and the down-side of this weather. Best of all, though, is knowing that you are back where you belong - blogging, and as good as ever!

Granny Sue said...

Agreed--when we can't get out to visit, we can visit here. Take care and enjoy your visits!
