Update on the Cowls
It was always in my way - housework, outdoor work, putting wood in the stove, baking and cooking etc. It was not conducive to my lifestyle. Daughter uses it to keep warm on her long drive back and forth to college, and for driving anywhere really.
I love the short one. It's perfect.
Update on the ear warmer - gave this away to the girls too. It has way to many "holes" in it to keep the wind off my ears. I'm now looking for a more solid pattern to make a new one.
I'm up late, but luckily the fire was still burning. The puppies decided to sleep in a bit I guess. I just had to go outside and bring in more wood. It's still cold here. We've moved up to -11°F, but will be up to 19°F later today, according to the weather.
I now have a pair of grippers on my boots. They hold nice and tight to the ice. I just have to remember not to wear them into the kitchen to bring wood in. No more near misses now.
Hubby is now enjoying herbal teas. He's been testing some out for me, and I think I've convinced him they do have benefits. I hope to have an update later on at least one he's been drinking.
I haven't started my third book just yet. It's a toss between what to start yet. Non-fiction or fiction.
