What is a girl to do when there is 4 inches of new snow on the ground and the wind chill temperature is in the negative column and it's too cold to go outside and snap photos? Eat ice cream, of course! With strawberries. Oh, I needed it like I need another hole in my head, but it sure was good.
All afternoon while the winds were raging, I kept glancing at a few of my favorite cookbooks I keep on the old Hoosier cabinet and thought about trying out a new recipe, but ice cream seemed to be calling my name even on a cold, winter day. Maybe today is the day for baking. It's certainly a good day for extra warmth from a hot oven!
I'm anxious to see if the foundation workers will show up today. I wouldn't blame them if they didn't as it is unbelievably cold today even for Missouri with the wind chill factor. I listened to the jackhammer for 2 days last week and I'm glad to say that part of the job is finished. The kitties were all pretty much bummed out about the noise and hid for the biggest part of the day.
Well, all the kitties except Callie, who is not afraid of anything. When she wasn't sleeping, she had her head between the curtains at the front window with her little pink nose pressed against the glass watching everything that was going on outside. A very loud jackhammer wasn't going to faze her one bit!
It was a fairly nice day Saturday in spite of that snow you see on the ground and I went out to get a few groceries and make a stop at the hardware store for BG for something he needed. I had left my car in a spot where I thought I could make a getaway if I needed to with all the equipment around. Picture my jaw dropping open when I first spotted the little man sitting in the chair at the front of the above trailer! I don't know when they put him there, but I appreciate their sense of humor even if I couldn't decide if he had on ear muffs for the cold or if that was protection from the noise.
Stay safe and warm if you are having this very cold, snowy weather. My plan is to stay in today and make a big pot of soup and perhaps bake something, sip some tea and get my new Nook out and read while that soup is simmering.
Until next time...
