It’s cold outside. According to weather.com it’s -1 with a windchill of -14. Last night it was actually -22 (not sure I even want to know about the wind chill). There is lots and lots of snow on the ground and part of yesterday was spent attempting to push Paul’s truck out of the snow. Then I got smart and let him do the pushing- because really, I wasn’t getting anywhere. And oh boy do I feel it today! We did get unstuck, but the amount of snow is a little problematic when it comes to getting around.
Yesterday I (foolishly) thought it’d be nice to go for a little walk out by the studios to see the horses. And little it was- we ran back inside after I could no longer feel my thumbs. Paul’s beard had little icicles (I kid you not) and my glasses were super fogged up from my breathing. Oh, so THIS is the winter everyone was telling me about. Poor horsies- they wanted me to feed them, I wanted to give them blankets. Neither was accomplished.
But I’m happy to report that with long johns, knee high socks plus regular socks, boots, 2 shirts and a sweater, plus my crazy undersea balaclava, mittens and a parka, I survived the walk to work. Heh. It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!
It was a slow and crafty weekend…. I did a little sewing, a little flower-loom flower making, a little thinking. I started to tackle the sewing machine bag (because I’m nutty) and I even got around to making enchiladas. But the most exciting thing that happened was that my sister had her baby boy on Friday night. Everything went smoothly– she delivered in 6 hours with no drugs. Totally amazing. I can’t wait to meet him!
