Lazy blogger finally remembers to post...

Somehow that final countdown to Christmas, followed by travel, followed by guests for New Year's Eve, followed by New Year's Day with its all-time-low on the energy scale... Well, now that the dust has settled a bit (the resident dust rhinos are currently whooping it up in all the corners and under the furniture), just maybe I can get things back on track.
I finished a second Crofter's Cowl out of that skein of Blue Fog Nature Spun. I won't bother taking another picture. Just back up a couple of entries to here if you're curious. Absolutely freakin' identical... That was my traveling knitting for going to my Dad's house.
I didn't finish the second pair of Fiber Trends clogs. They were meant to be for Madman for Christmas (not the first time he's unwrapped a lumpy package complete with knitting needles...), but I ran out of yarn at the eleventh hour. I had planned to run down to the LYS to get more this morning (my only chance to go until next week), but when we woke up this morning we found that the pipes had frozen in the well-below-zero temps, so plans had to be changed.
I had to run to the coffee shop for coffee (where I got my first senior citizen's discount EVER. I'm still not sure how I feel about that. Fifty-five is not old.) then swung by the grocery store to pick up some gallons of water, and to the feed store to get some chicken feed. I'm currently thawing out the chicken's waterer on top the stove.

I hate winter.
At least I didn't have to be in to work early this morning. I would have had to brush my teeth with wine leftover from New Year's Eve...

Oh ewww... brushing your teeth with wine would so suck!

I'm reading a ton about freezing pipes lately and it's freaking me out. Our basement is currently 38 degrees (where the pipes are) so should I worry?

Your colleagues, and the state police would never understand that it was just toothwash. Ever.

I'm sorry about the pipes. That totally sucks, and is one of my nightmare fantasies.
