After that though the temperatures plummeted to a balmy -53 C with the wind chill factored in. Not fit for man or beast. We hunkered down in the warmth of our home and cleaned up all the Christmas decorations.
We did venture out once to set up our trip to Las Vegas in February, but that was the only thing we left the house for.
Today was my first day back at work after a two week break. Oh my, am I tired. The little fellow I work with was not a happy camper for the first couple of hours, but after I took him for a break and played a game in the gym with him he was a bit easier to handle.
Thought I would share the sweater I knit over the past few days (actually I finished it a day or so ago). I used the same pattern as the other one I made over the holidays, but made it a touch longer in the body. This time I used a fuzzy blue wool by Patons.
The next thing I want to share is one of my Christmas presents. Awhile back I happened to mention within earshot of Kurt that some day I would really like a body pillow. He took me at my word and special ordered this.......... Look how big it is! Takes up all the room in the bed, but it is comfortable and comes with its own pillow case. Both Harvey and I have decided that we are going to have to watch what we say in front of Kurt as he takes us at our word.
He did buy me a bit more practical gift to go along with the pillow. A rice cooker, and I love it! Now I can make fluffy light rice all the time.
Well I guess that is all for tonight. Off to visit you all.
Have a wonderful evening. God bless.
