Winter is back

Last week was lovely and warm.  Sort of.  Well, it was above freezing.  It was above freezing during part of the day.

Look, it’s Canada, I’ll take what I can get, OK?

The Big Bike made it’s first trip out.  I picked Little Girl up from school and we biked to the good grocery store to buy milk and what not.

The Before Christmas Sweater was dug out and I frogged back one of the sleeves, again.  I picked up the stitched and am knitting the sleeves two at a time style to make sure they match.

The Jupiter Socks came off the needles on Wednesday.  I wore them yesterday and they are going into the wash.  They are a little itchy around the ankles.  It reminded me why I like my favourite sock yarn (Cascade Heritage Paints) so much.  They are just softer.  I wish Cascade sock yarn came in as many  colour choices as ONLine.  Or that ONLine had the texture of the Cascade.  But it doesn’t.

Today is -19C (Feels like -30C) or -2F (Feels like -22F).

I kind of just want to hide in bed today.  Working the late shift instead.  Not looking forward to coming home in the cold and dark.  Still, a girls gotta eat.

Speaking of which, have you tried adding a little celery seed to your ranch dressing?   I buy Johnny’s X-treme Dill Ranch (not an endorsement, it just happens to be the one I like) and a little sprinkle of celery seed on top of my salad really sells it.
