The temperature is still in the minus column and it looks like it will probably stay there today. My apartment stays warm with the thermostat set at 70 degrees, and it only occasionally drops down to 67 or 68. I am grateful to be living in an old building with outer walls that are nearly a foot thick, and living on second floor where the rising heat from the bicycle shop downstairs keeps my floors warm as well.
Today is a good day to piddle about with sewing projects. I got to digging through my closet and found a couple of half-finished quilt tops, so I'm working on those today. Country music on the radio and once in a while some classical for a change of pace. Hot coffee within reach. The promise of my favorite cold weather comfort food - chicken and dumplings - for supper.
I have some running around to do, but that will keep until it warms up later this week or the first part of next week. Need to get fitted for compression socks and maybe take a trip to the fabric store, just for fun. Been a while since I was out and about just for fun. I'm thinking I will do more of that when warmer weather arrives.
Sometimes I tend to get caught up in the seriousness of my latest illness or in the horror of the news lately, and forget that life needs to be lived, too. I used to go places and do things just for the fun of it, and maybe it is high time to get back into that habit.
