Hidey ho neighbour! The pot is perking and the snow is falling (again) so come in and sit a spell. If we were meeting for coffee today you couldn't help but notice that our dog has been forced to wear the cone of shame (again).
It's a glandular issue and she's been spending far too much time down there. Let's just say I'm grateful I'm not the one who has to put the ointment on twice a day.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you that Riley and I spent Saturday afternoon together on the couch watching a movie and spoiling our dinner with a big bowl of popcorn. And it felt good.
I would tell you about My Most Recent Embarrassing Episode, which really is turning into a weekly event. I had some clay creations ready to dip in a colour wash - a wash I made some time ago, I'll admit. I opened the jar, went to put some music on and caught a waft of a truly most horrible smell. I ran around searching high and low, suspecting the poor dog. It turns out it was my paint wash which had gone off. Oh my goodness. I had to open the window and pour baking soda down the sink to clear the room - nay, the house - of the stench.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would probably complain about the snow although compared to what some people are living around the world weather-wise, we have gotten off pretty easy so far this winter. Sunday morning was a picture postcard day, so coined by those who don't have to shovel it, scrape it or drive in the wretched stuff. We also had our first "red light" day this winter. -30 with the windchill when we headed off to work and school yesterday. Can you say, "long jjjjjjjjjohns"?
This gizmo lets us know when the temperature dips below -12. We have dual system heating which means we pay very little for electricity EXCEPT when it's -12 or colder then we pay through the nose. Just seeing the light on kind of made me shiver, good thing I had my new Patagonia wool socks on.
I got them last week at Winners (TJ Max) ridiculously cheap (for Patagonia at any rate). They were marked "irregular". I had no idea what was irregular about them until I put them on this morning. They are still warm, even if they make my feet look deformed.
If we were meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you I've been working hard at practicing self-care this year. I received a bunch of bath bombs for Christmas (also some for my birthday in September) and it dawned on me it was time to stop "saving" them.
Since Christmas I have been bombing my bath every Saturday night. I'm living the dream, baby.
But look at the time! I need to drop in at Amy's before I get the rest of this show on the road. Thanks for stopping by, you can tag along with me if you're still looking for a little company.
