They said it was coming.
I didn’t believe it.
Too clear and cold last night.
No sign of a storm. No wind. No nothing.
Turns out I don’t know jack about weather prediction.
My years of experience in this place don’t mean diddly squat any more.
It began snowing about an hour ago…
My house is staying warmer this winter, because I put up plastic on the outside of my living room windows… AND another layer on the inside. For a while, I thought I was being silly, but turns out it made a big difference. My living room is actually comfortable now even on the cold days. Last winter? Not so much. I did a lot of hovering around Bruce.
I spent an excruciating amount of time yesterday hand sewing the zipper into the little green knock off bag.
I poked my fingers several times with pins AND the needle. .\/.
Though I must say, now that the annoyance is fading, I like the result.
Sort of like childbirth. Somehow the ordeal fades once the baby is in your arms.
But dudes, I don’t know if zippers are going to be my thing going forward.
I would have to add a full 20 dollars to the price of a bag if someone really thought they HAD to have a zipper.
Since it’s a snowy day, and the wood shed is full, I think I’ll bake some whole wheat sugar cookies. And I also have a collection of meatless meatball recipes I want to try. I printed them all out yesterday, and I’m ready to give one a go.
Any excuse to turn the oven on and add to the fight against the chill outdoors.
Stay warm my friends.
