|Finding it difficult to dig in the Frozen Ground!|
It was ironic that the soil was so rock-hard frozen that they literally could not get the dig into it. They tried ( and kinda failed) to smooth out the mounds of dirt still adorning the landscape. All of it was set up more solidly than the concrete they poured three days ago!
|IKEA furniture? When did we order this?|
Cheryl did not run today...choosing instead to focus our energies on catching up a few stockings. It was terribly cold today and she needed a day off anyway. What better time to divert that extra energy and time to the stocking shop!
We arrived home to see that IKEA furniture had been delivered. It was a good thing the driveway was finished, or else the poor guy would have had to lug all that junk down the 1/4 mile of driveway...In the COLD!
|My button collection....replenished!|
And then on to stockings. 40 total today! I forgot we did 36 yesterday. 40 seems a lot like 36...but it is currently 10:15 P.M. and Cheryl is still packing things up. And we did not run today....so I'm not sure if the time is the same.
|Hiro, the "Unwilling" Shop Cat!|
|He's trying to go outside, not inspecting.|
|He looks so bored....And not very helpful.|
So another mountain of stockings for us....and now we are down to only 49 open orders! However, many of those orders are of 4 stockings.... so that might still be a serious effort. We shall see.
And to Celebrate our achievement? The Calling IPA from Boulevard Brewing Co. I really like their Wheat Beer and I have been enjoying these special season limited releases. I have yet to try the sour ale ( probably will not.) and their special Dark beer. But who knows. We have not been in the spirits section in a while. And with Wisconsin beer on the Horizon, it is possible I might miss out on any new seasonal beers. But we shall see how it goes.
Hope everyone is staying warm Lots to blog about at the moment....and A motivated, unemployed writer at the ready. It makes for longer blog posts, I guess. Thanks for reading and stopping in.
