this morning. It was 6 degrees when I got up this morning and the wind chill was 1 below zero. I don’t like it when we start having wind chill along with the temperature. That means winter is definitely closing in.
Yesterday was a fairly decent day although it didn’t get out of the 20s all day. I went with my daughter to an open house at a small flower shop downtown. They were serving sherbet punch, cookies, etc. There were door prizes to be given. Evidently neither one of us won as I didn’t hear anything. We each purchased something though. Marcia got a lovely center piece with live flowers and I purchased the cute snowman you see below. His tummy lights up and it is so pretty in the dark.
The arrangement is sitting on top of an old wooden bookcase that is put together with wooden pegs. Jim and I picked it up at an auction probably 40 years ago.
I am going to make oatmeal raisin and snickerdoodle cookies today. Actually just the dough and I will make the cookies tomorrow. Cookies don’t spread if you chill the dough a few hours or overnight.
I forgot to tell you that after the flower shop open house we had lunch at 8th Street Station aka Grumpy Pete’s. I don’t know why they changed the name. I thought Grumpy Pete’s sounded way more classy. lol
Time to get busy. You all take time to enjoy the morning. Today is unique in that it is one of a kind. Stay safe and be happy!! Oh, and ‘Hi’ to RB who I know reads my blog each day even though he says they are nothing but gossip.
