Baby, It’s Cold Outside
I’ve been up since 4:30 this morning, and the temperature has been falling like a rock. And the wind chill is falling, too. Right now it's –10F … and that’s not as low as it’s going to be later on today. The only good news that I can find in all this is that the sun is shining and the wind eventually will be dying down so that we won’t get wind chills of –30F or lower when the temperature is at its lowest. We did get some snow last night, but it’s only a light dusting. There are a few patches of snow out on the street, but most of what I can see is in the landscaping. I know I’m in the minority but if we have to have such cold weather, couldn’t we at least have some snow to make everything pretty?
If I hadn’t already committed to walk with my neighbor Lois (at the Y of course!!!), I would have just stayed inside today … it’s warm and toasty here, with the fireplace going. Since I have my exercise out of the way, I’m definitely planning to spend the rest of my day inside, quilting.
Speaking of hand quilting, I’ve got 3 blocks left to quilt. If my plans for today aren’t foiled, I am hoping to get the quilting completed today … woo hoo! Of course, I still have to cut and sew on the binding, but if I get the quilting done today, I should be able to get the binding on tomorrow.
As I walked out the front door to get into Lois’s car, I saw a box on the porch … my amazon.com order came a day early. I brought it in with me when we got back from walking … who knew that Best Press freezes? Thankfully it didn’t freeze solid so the bottle didn’t explode. Thankfully I won’t need it until (hopefully) Friday when I’ll be done with DH’s log cabin and can start cutting fabrics for T#3’s quilt.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
