The wind is howling outside. Upon arising this morning, I saw the temperature at 44º , and set to drop one or two or three degrees every hour, with wind gusts up to 30 mph - from the north...until tomorrow at 7:00am, when it is forecast to be 13º outside.
This afternoon I attended to the duckhouse (heat lamp and heated water), and attended to the pups (heated water bucket, and fed two hours early.)
So the animals are kept.
I hear my wind chime - my souvenir from my San Diego jaunt to visit daughter Gillian - bonging in the night. It has only one tone, a very, very deep BONG. This is because I live in Kansas. Wind chimes in Kansas? Are you KIDDING ME?! But my San Diego wind chime bongs a subtle, very deep note every-so-often, when that old north wind comes to visit.
What's good to do tonight? I am making a vegetarian pizza, and perusing my quilt blogs - two of which make me think I should attend to them in earnest, in 2013. Kind of like a New year's Resolution, except it would be one part fun (the reading) and one part work (the quilting). Nevertheless, I am thinking that these two blogs will be part of my 2013:
Civil War Quilts
Even if I do not produce, I will have learned.
OK..the wind is still howling, the dough has risen, and I must attend to dinner.
