It was a whopping 1 degree today. We were ready for the big chill. I got my husband a bunch of books from the library and my quilt project was calling. We had chocolate waffles for breakfast. Even better with hot coffee and vanilla peach syrup.
We had a few small snows. Just enough to keep us shoveling. Despite the frigid temperature Ella and I went for our weekly jaunt. As the saying goes, "there is no bad weather, just bad clothes." I dressed warm and the trip was refreshing. We were super careful, as the last few days we have had a mountain lion wandering around.
The lion's tracks have been sticking close to the house. It was here about the same time last year and likes to go under our deck then up our sidewalk. Ella has become wise to lion watch. When she goes on the porch she gruffly barks both ways. Then she goes to the end of the sidewalk and barks both ways. Then she checks to make sure we are behind her before she goes to do her business.
Despite the cold temperatures it was a good weekend. It sounds like we will have a few more like it. How is the weather where you are? What are you doing to stay busy?
