Thursday Tidbits

 While the sun shone for most of the day, the wind howled and it was pretty darn cold out. Made me happy that I went shopping yesterday instead of today. I did so just to stay out of the cold. Cold and I no longer get along as well as we used to.

I was asked how I managed to find the temperatures for 1976. Well I found a site that contains archived temperatures for our city. I am sure there are probably more sites for what is known as "Historical Temperatures" for each city in the world.

We are under a boil water advisory for the next few days. There was a major water main break and the break caused a de-pressuring of the system. I have spent much of the day boiling water and filling containers. I know I will have to do more tomorrow, and probably until at least Monday. Hopefully things will be back to normal by then, but one never knows. 

I marked out a pattern on the second quilt top made a few months ago, and have started to hand quilt it. I will work on that during the afternoons for awhile. Knitting was starting to hurt my shoulder a bit and I need a little rest from it for a bit. Probably will get back to the temperature blanket next week at some point. 

A tiny bit of decluttering and cleaning took place as well. I cleaned out the clutter between the fridge and the wall as well as a catch all area beside the stove. Washed the floors in those areas and either tossed, rehomed, or recycled various items I found. Three items were put in the bags for donations. Not much but every little thing that leaves the house makes me feel just a bit lighter.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It is so easy to develop clutter, like where dos it come from? We have only lived here 7 months and I feel like I need to de clutter. Would love to see the quilt you are working on.

  2. "....every little thing that leaves the house makes me feel just a bit lighter." Perfectly said, Jackie!! I'm glad you got a few more things done. ~Andrea xoxo

  3. Remember as kids we had to be told to do up our coats when we ran outside to play? Even in winter. Lol
    Yes. I'd love to see your temperature quilt.

  4. I hope the boil water advisory is lifted quickly and the repairs are made to the main. I'm sure the cold weather won't help the crew get their work done.

    I tend to switch between knitting and crocheting because each aggravates some muscle or another. Enjoy your quilting.

    Take care, stay well!

  5. Sorry to hear about the troublesome water issue. Here's hoping it doesn't last long. Stay safe.
