We're having a real winter this year. When the temp warms up a bit, it snows as it did nearly all day yesterday. (It was beautiful.)
After the snow, the thermometer dips down to just a few degrees above zero for a day time high and then into the teens below at night. That's the weather outlook for us right now and for the next several days.
After all our moving of snow and shoveling late yesterday, the high winds blew all last night (ask me how I know), and this morning we are faced with more shovel work to clear the drifts the wind made. (Why do the drifts always end up in just the wrong places?)
But as they say, it's winter time, real winter time, in northern Minnesota. Our house is so well banked with snow now that we aren't even putting a night time log into our stoves to keep a fire going all night. Morning house temperature is low to mid-60s but easily warms up to 70° almost before we have our morning coffee consumed. All is good.
I finished and put up this blue and white winter cross-stitch piece I showed in a post previously. Yes, I know I would like it better just a bit lower on this small wall space, but I chose not to put another hanger hole in the dry wall. (That's one reason I like wood paneled walls. All of my various nail holes don't seem to show.)
Wherever you are located, stay warm and safe and healthy. I'm pretending I'm moving to the kitchen counter now to bake a pan of apple slices. It will be just pretend as we're both trying to avoid sweets (and an over-abundance of all calories) as our exercise out in the fresh, clean and clear winter air has given both of us one heckuva mighty appetite over which we need to gain control. Wish us luck.
