The local news station posted on facebook that tonight will be the coldest night of the year. It’s already -12, and still falling. I’m thankful DH made room in the garage for my car since I have to have my mom at the hospital by 8:00 AM.
We watched all three granddogs last weekend. When the neighbor dogs trekked through the woods to say hi, they were ecstatic to see the company. All five dogs, three labs, one collie, and one pug, had a hayday playing in the snow, and went through a full bag of t-bone treats.
I attended “If You Give a Moose a Muffin” musical today with my granddaughter’s preschool class. Her first bus ride! It was a wonderful event and the kids were great. Then I went to a purse party this evening. Tomorrow, after getting my mother settled home with my brother and sister-in-law, Jess and I will attend fundraiser we’ve planned for a friend.
Nope, cold weather doesn’t slow down Minnesotans.
On the writing side: If you haven’t had a chance to vote over at Siren, the voting is open until Feb. 1st. I finished the edits for an Undone and sent it back to my editor, and have completed another couple chapters on my WIP. The interview with the gold miner from Nevada was so educational!
A final tidbit before I close, if you want a delicious nightcap, try a cup of hot chocolate with a splash of raspberry Schnapps—it’s like drinking a raspberry truffle!
Warm or cold, have a wonderful week!
