  1. Crazy Indeed?

    At the present time, we in the Prairies, are experiencing a bitter cold front that renders temperatures floating between -28 Celcius to -45 Celcius.... Yuppers. Bitter indeed.

    But the silence in that kind of cold is unbelievable ... it truly is deafening when you go outside to that chill. I joke that I can hear a neighbor a mile away open their front door... but that is not far from the truth...

    If you dress for this kind of cold, it doesn't bother you much
  2. And On Christmas Day

    A bell.
    So I figured out why I always get depressed on Christmas Day without fail.

    Itís not just because me and my dad donít get on. Itís not that heís a bad person though. Donít go thinking that. Itís just because we donít interact with each other more than a couple of times a year so he doesnít know how to deal with me (because I am a sensitive creature).
    Itís not just that though. Tiredness adds more kindling so to speak. So just one tiny spark and thatís it. Iím ...

    A little candle.

    The tableís cleared at least. Thatís not normally finished until just before dinner. So thatís a win.
    Really really need to hoover but itís midnight and the hooverís very loud. Donít think the neighbours will be happy with that.
    Iíve finally fixed the candle stick. Well the holder I should say.

    There ...

  5. Day 22

    A bit too late again but never mind.
    A snowman.

    Iíve picked up a knitting project that Iím not sure if I can do in time.
    Back when the first new arrivals came into the family, some years ago now, I started knitting a teddy bear onesie for the baby boy. Heís not a baby any more and is far too old for it now, but baby Simon should be just the right age. I just have to sew it together.
    Either about the same time or just a little after I started it mum decided to ...
