So cold everywhere

The temp in the house is this 63F

And outside it's this...8F

I know that most of the U.S. is in the deep freeze and will not bore you with details. We have not lost power, the roads are all ploughed, and DH shovelled the driveway yesterday.

But, I had to put these on. I finished them last winter and did not have an opportunity to wear them. Let me tell you, that they did not work so well indoors. I think that they would be great for outdoors. Since the leggings are fairisle they are thicker than single yarn leggings. I am certain that they will guard me in the fierce 40-60mph winds we had for the last two days. Good thing I did not have to go outside.

Stayed in and worked on finishing stuff, and made bread and pizza.

I had to show you my mill--the one I use all the time--it looks like it's 'plum-tuckered-out' from all the milling it had to do.

Well, I only did one batch of four loaves--as always--but I think the picture is sort of comical, with the sponge filter half way out.
I did not want to bore you with more pictures of bread and pizza.
Now I have some version of cabin fever, not having gone out since Saturday. DH wants to take me for a pleasant drive, but the weather guy has been frightening the population by saying that we are going to be coated by ice. So far...nothing! Just looked at the doppler radar and *nutt'n* coming down. That means we could go for a *pleasant drive* before dinner.
DH had an office "snack day" (I sent one pizza and a loaf of bread, sliced) He said he was so full that he did not want any dinner...(maybe a salad)...I'm thinking Matzo ball soup...yum!
At this time of year his office "snack day" is more like the *dining halls of the Roman Empire* but I digress.
I have the doldrums, probably a combination of recovering from that 'lots of cough' cold, being indoors, and no sunshine--that reminds me to go take my cod-liver-oil (Carlson brand, it's lemon flavour, not bad)
Also, have a complaint about bloggers, including me.
Ok, so, I have many blogs bookmarked in my favorites, and go to them 2 or 3 times a week. Well, there are many of them that have not had a new post in days [not too bad], weeks [not too good] and some have not posted in months! [that's crummy]
Mind you, 'my' blog favorites are knitters, crocheters, homekeepers, cooks, wool combers/carders, spinners, quilters, and sewers, for the most part. And these do not include my 'blogs I like to visit' on my right margin.
It seems that when I find a really good, informative, practical blog--although she has posted regularly--there are no new subsequent posts.
Should I delete the delayed blogs?
How long do you 'put up' with such postlessness?
I am too demanding of my fellow bloggers, albeit taking, occasional vacations myself?
Perhaps, I am too demanding {besides being a hypocrite--I do the same, that I accuse others of doing}
Maybe these are rhetorical are welcome to leave input.
I'll leave you with this:

"The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God." Psa 14:2
In His hands, ^__^

I'm pretty patient with bloglessness! I understand busyness and sometimes life is just that way and besides there are some really good blogs out there that are worth the wait that I just can't get rid of. If they don't come back after 2-3 months though, I loose interest. I like your leg warmers, you did a good job on those!!

I agree with Daisy, after a few months it gets disappointing to wait, kinda like clouds and wind without rain. I wish I could blog more, but the internet has been finicky and when it's my turn it's only for a few moments to check on everyone else!
It seems like this winter everyone is just a'hunkerin' down to wait out the cold while they just keep busy.

We're supposed to get down to -6 F here and we had the sleet all yesterday and last night, but I guess it was warm enough
(30 F) to melt off the streets.

Hope you are enjoying the snow and having a good planning time for the winter eating holiday!

(the legwarmers are really nice looking!)

Use bloglines instead of favorites :) It shows whether or not something has been updated without having to actually GO to the blog. I don't read blogs without it :)
