Damn cold. Freeeeezing cold. It is so cold, in fact, that my feet do not thaw out, like, ever. I may be wearing fuzzy socks, I may be wearing fur-lined slippers, but my feet, they do not care. No, they stubbornly remain footcicles, all day long.
It is so cold here, that it snowed for the first time in like 30 years. We might get a few little bitty flakes of snow on the odd winter day, but it never sticks. Our snow level came down to about 300 feet a couple of nights ago, and stuck around for hours! Mt Diablo is blanketed in snow like a freaking alpine summit! It is crazy weird, you guys.
In retaliation, I've been making lots of comfort food: mac 'n' cheese with ham, roasted chicken, etc. You know, all that stick-to-your-ribs kind of food. The kind that piles on the pounds so you have a little bit of insulation to get you through until spring.
Oh, and knitting, lots and lots of knitting. I'm trying really hard to get my Christmas projects done in time to send them out to the various recipients.
