We go from one extreme to the other. Yesterday it was bone chilling cold, we had a little snow on the ground when we woke up. 20 F or – 6C was the high today..a real bummer.
Even if it was cold the sun was out for a bit so I ventured out to the old vegetable greenhouse which is now a woodshop. I am trying to make a few Christmas gifts. I might get them done in the next thirty four days.
I also worked on projects here in the house, the ones I call “No one notices but me” the ones that bug only me. Papers and notes and things shoved here and there when I am working.
Time to clear out the old lady summer bag and get out the old lady winter bag. The epi pens don’t need to follow me everywhere in the winter…cause the freaking bees went south! If any of you carry epi pens for allergies you know what I mean they take up lots of space.
This is my winter bag. It doubles as survival gear, if needed I can dump it out and wear it as a hat or a foot warmer. I think it is some kinda shrunken or felted wool. I bought it at a neighbors garage sale for a dollar. It will match everything I wear…no big matchy matchy choices for me. What do I keep in here? My Kindle, Kleenex, a pencil, Aleve, extra medication for Far Guy, some almonds, gum, hairbrush, Carmex, toothpicks and an extra pair of sunglasses should I be blinded by the sun.
In the next few days I need to pack some survival gear for both vehicles: extra mittens, a candle, matches and some snacks…it will all fit in a coffee can. We already have an extra blanket or two in both vehicles. We usually don’t venture out if the weather turns bad, but I would rather be safe than sorry:)
