Winter is not for sissies. We had a mini blizzard yesterday; just a dusting of snow, but I thought the wind would blow my roof off. The snow was blowing sideways. It is so cold outside this morning, I am not going to go out to take a picture of snow on this little Christmas decoration.
It got down to 3 degrees last night; it hasn't been that cold since 1983. The lake out back is frozen over. When I raised the blinds this morning, the ducks came in for a landing and slid around like ice skaters.
I stayed holed up in the house and there were many car wrecks on the highways. I worry when it gets this cold - about the water lines freezing and bursting, the animals - everything. Those brave souls that live up north must be made of stronger stuff than I am.
I made my first batch of peanut brittle yesterday for Christmas and guess what happened? It pulled a tooth crown right off. Now, I have to see if I can find a dentist to cement it back on as I'm not going back to the farm until after the holidays. If I can't find a dentist in the city to do it, I guess I'll superglue it back on. An expensive piece of candy. Aye yay yay! And, I'm not through shopping, wrapping and baking for Christmas.
HO HO HO!
