Ok, so I imagine no one in the country is safe from the chill these last few days. Even here in Central Florida, we’re feeling the brisk burn of the cold winds. Ok, so it’s not AS bad as other places, but you do feel a definite pinch in the butt when the temp goes from 85 (like it was yesterday) to 45 (which it is right now).
We’re awfully lucky this far south. It’ll only last a day or two before we creep back up into the tropical 70’s. However, in the meantime, you do start to make preparation for the coming cold with dusty sweaters hidden in your closet, recipes for warming, brothy soups, and outside fire pits (if you have one).
Now, I was sure I was going to need an extra blanket. With money tight, I spied my stash and all the lovely yarn people have sent me over the last year. Jennie Owens sent me a box a couple of months ago with some amazing afghan yarn. Dude….perfect….PERFECT. All it took was a mere two days of going round and round in a massive giant granny square to whip up my extra blanket to keep warm under. It came out rather nice. Browns, blues, greys, masculine. And obviously, Mario seems to really like it too.
SO! We’re all prepped up for the next two days. No need to leave the cozy confines of my tiny apartment. I’ve made chicken soup from scratch, I’ve got my extra blanket to cuddle under, got the second season of American Horror Story to watch. Got my knitting needles, gonna whip out some teddy bears 🙂 Yes, I’m busy still getting as many orders out before Christmas, and the weather is just PERFECT for knitting up a storm.
Gonna be a nice two days of comfortable productivity 🙂 Ya’ll stay warm!
