Tuesday

Old man winter flipped us the bird overnight. We had a bit of snow, not much, maybe two or three inches, but man did it get COLD. Tonight is supposed to be around -20C in our immediate area! It hasn't been this cold around here, on this date, for many years. The last time I remember running our wood burning furnace was when my husband passed away. I was stuffing the furnace all on my own from about Thanksgiving that year.
There is a little kitty running around our yard. We think it might belong to the neighbour across the road who has had some barn cats deposited at his place.
We took a run to town for a little shopping today. As usual, WalMarts 20 or more self serve checkouts were deserted and there were line ups at the staffed checks. I wonder when they will get the message?
I picked up a couple more Christmas gifts. I was telling M that I want to be all finished by December 1. The hats are all knit and I'm working on the matching mittens and gloves. I've given up trying…
