This was the temperature on the highway coming home last night. Can you see it? It was –33* and I was out grocery shopping. Me and a whole lot of other people. Crowded stores make me nuts. When I got home it was –28* at the house. I think it is –20* this morning at home and in town it is –35* to –40*. Our first big cold snap of this winter. Good thing Homer got the furnace going in the coop. Bad thing that we don't have stairs.
So what do kids do when it is so cold out? Well, my boys went out and snow skated for a little while. Would you believe Olivia went out and watched them? Then we were couch slugs.
Lucas played the Wii. (Would someone put away those decorations?!!).
Rusty kicked back in my lap.
I should have done something last night, but yesterday we spent hours running around in the freezing cold for chiropractor and physical therapy appointments. I was tired.
These are boxes we saw at the craft fair and decided we could make them. I have two summer’s worth of dried flowers I’ve never used. I decided not to take the time to build a box and bought a couple on clearance at Michael’s to give it a try. I do like woodworking, but I just don’t have that kind of free time right now.
Learned something new last night. Remember the “new” truck my hubby got me for our anniversary? Well, the remote that we thought was just for locking/unlocking the door and an alarm system (the buttons are worn off) is really an auto start. I just have to laugh at myself. At least I figured it out now in this cold spell. Now if I could just remember to push the button to warm up the leather seats I’d be in business!
