How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful. I finished a book (that leaves three more to go) and I finished one sock and started the second sock. Oh and guess what? So far I have electricity. I was worried enough about the weather that I did all the laundry on Saturday and powered up the power banks for the phones AND filled up some jugs with water.
The water jugs are still sitting on the kitchen counter, just in case. I believe in enough magic to know that if I tip them down the drain, the lights might just go out.
I finished reading The Clockmaker's Daughter, by Kate Morton and it was 'okay'. I liked her previous books better. I didn't care for all the different times in the past, there were a lot and the ending left me thinking 'what??'.
I'm now focusing on Magpie Murders and will try my best to finish that book next. I'm over half way and am thoroughly enjoying the mystery. Sadly George Washington has been set aside so I could finish some books. I'll return to dear George when I finish Magpie Murders.
We did not get the snow amounts that were predicted. I'm okay with that. Whenever they start talking about ice or sleet I worry about power outages. I woke up to rain and now it's a chilly 20 degrees outside and the temperatures are still dropping.
I am currently wearing: a wool sweater, a wool cowl, and a pair of wool socks. Winter is for knitters. Every morning after I feed Holly and Frodo, I go into my chifforobe and pick a woolen knit.
On Saturday I helped my husband go through clothes that have accumulated over the years in drawers and in the closet. We made great progress. There are a few more drawers to go.
Today he cleared the driveway of slush and wet wet heavy snow. I'm grateful that I didn't have to participate (I did do the laundry...).
Tonight with a cup of green tea, I'll be working on my sweater and reading some more of my book. I should menu plan and sketch out my week but I do have tomorrow morning to do that.
