The house is very, very quiet as both our sons have left. Kris for his apartment in Regina, and Kurt to visit with his best friend (and friends wife) for a few days.
Me, well I feel a bit lonely, but I am sure that feeling will disappear as I try and get the house back in order.
It is still extremely cold here with daytime temperatures only reaching -25 C with wind chills making it feel like -40 C. Perfect for snuggling in with a good book or my knitting that's for sure. I have managed to make one pair of mittens and matching toque for one of the twins and will be casting on for the next later this evening.
Sewing fell by the wayside, though I did mend a pair of pants for one son, sewed a button on for the other and fixed a coat pocket for Harvey. I still have one coat of Harvey's to mend but will get to that as soon as I finish the top I started before Christmas. One more day should see that sewing project done.
Menus have changed as well. I of course cooked way too much and now Harvey and I are working our way through the excess. Tonight we finished off the chili, tomorrow will still be the salmon casserole, but Saturday will be the leftover tetrazzini.
Lots of lovely gifts were opened and over the next couple of days I will share what I managed to get pictures of (I seem to forget to do that quite often).
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
