The weather screamed hot cocoa, hallmark and crochet. Brr. Nasty, dreary skies, cold weather, like the kind that keeps you curled up under a blanket with cozy slippers and a cuddly dog and/or cat.
The weather turned to snow all night and then freezing temps, so there was a layer of ice on the snow. Not what I needed for a drive to the hospital. Roads were in terrible condition and 95 school districts closed in the area of the winter storm.
I made it to the hospital for my procedure, leaving early with a driver.
I'm glad I took handiwork along. I had to wait about 45 minutes, but was done in 45 minutes and literally was able to walk to the truck.
However, this morning, I am sore. It'll be that way for a few days, and then it's back for another sonogram later this week. The doc said it all looked good when he was done. I am not allowed to lift, exercise or anything of that nature for two weeks. I am concerned about the amount of firewood we have and the near 0 temps this morning. We will have to summon the boys to come help if that's needed. Hopefully, I'll be back to full swing in two weeks.
Breakfast - made this on Monday, so Tuesday the Hubster and daughter had breakfast on the go. It's what I had on hand - a sausage "souffle" but with bread swapped out for shredded potatoes (a fluffier version). I do prefer the bread version, but I didn't have time to bake bread.
I also got cauliflower chowder going in the crock pot first thing Tuesday morning, so there was a hearty dinner when we got home.
It's a brisk 6°F this morning. Thankfully, my youngest does not have school again today due to an event they are holding at the career center (school of hers). I'll have help with firewood being carried in, taking Romeo out, and so forth. Speaking of which, I'll need to put my spikes back on my boots starting tomorrow.
I was up at 3am, because I couldn't sleep with the uncomfortable soreness in my leg. I came out to stoke the fire and found Tiger on a mouse hunt. Cold weather must have brought it in somewhere, but I'm confident he'll take care of it for us. Just another glory bonus of living in the country.
I still haven't gotten to the library. When the school closes the library closes, and they were also closed Monday. I will be sending someone to the library for me today, and keeping the movement of my leg to a minimum. It may be another hot cocoa, hallmark and crochet kind of day, and I'm okay with that.
