Oh my but it is cold. This morning I set my alarm clock as curling playoffs started at 8:30am....I wanted to be up and dressed, take my insulin and have breakfast before it came on TV. Canada is deciding which men and women's teams are to represent them at the Olympics. It has been on all week and I have enjoyed some excellent shot making. Since I really can't get out very much I am really thankful to have such good TV to pass the time. I am also enjoying TCM and all their old movies, especially the black and white ones. No matter what I find one can always find the good in any situation if they are open to it.
When I tried to open my front door to get my newspaper from the mailbox it took a lot of effort as my door was frozen. In fact everything outside is frozen solid and it is suppose to get worse before it gets better. It is -41C which is -41.8F, with the wind-chill factor. In fact it is very dangerous and one can get frost bite within 3 minutes of exposure......this Arctic freeze is suppose to last until Wednesday when they are calling it to warm up to -15, in my area that is bathing suit weather. Living north of the city we are always colder out here. Not many cars started in our parking lot this morning, everyone was trying to help each other but I am sure many are late for work or not going in at all as the parking lot is still full.
I have done some baking this week and am hoping to go into the city next week as I want to go to Costco to pick up fruit, vegetables and dips to make up some trays for my Christmas Tea.....all will depend on the weather. I am so happy I have my gift cupboard as I was able to fill stockings for all of my patients. I am sending a couple of gifts home with our little patients sister for her to open Christmas Day.
Sorry blogger friends, I had plans on sending small gifts to each of you in the village but know you all will not mind my using your gifts to make this Christmas a little bit better for those who are not well.
Oh no, I just heard on the news we are getting more snow tonight.....brrrrr! Time to light the fire, cover up with my snuggie and watch Curling.
Have a great weekend everyone, stay warm.........:-) many, many hugs
