Hello, everyone.  I expected to post at least one project today, but that just didn't work out.  It has been so cold here that I spent the day just trying to stay warm.  It was 17 degrees below zero at 8:30 this morning!  Of course, we are practically in Canada, and it is time for some cold weather, but this has come straight from the Arctic.  We got about 10 inches of snow on Thursday which isn't so unusual for this time of year, but that cold is.  We have our pellet stove running constantly and I baked brownies and two batches of cookies to keep the kitchen warm.  It's hard in an older house without lots of insulation.  Thank goodness we re-did the insulation in the living room this summer!

Anyway, I'm not crying, but I did want to post this picture to show you what's happening here.  Don't suppose we'll  be lucky enough that this will be the worst storm of the winter?  Ha!!!

Seems like the entire country is suffering from weather-related problems.  As miserable as this cold is, it could certainly be lots worse!  I only hope things are settling down for all you back East, and you're getting things back to normal.  Thinking about that really helps me keep things in perspective.

Have a safe, warm, and dry week!
