The wind here has been ferocious today. It woke me up around 4am this morning, I got up to check that both fires were ok and went back to bed, snuggling deep into my little nest. We decided to forgo church this morning as it has been snowing quite a bit and for a long stretch of time, sometimes with whiteout conditions.

I spent some time this morning putting clothes away, clearing the table, getting meds ready for the next two weeks. Laundry is going at the moment too.

We celebrated Christmas with Pete's family last night. It was a nice evening for all. With that being said, I have some gifts that need to be unpackaged and put away. They stayed in the car all night as it was dark when we got home and our yard is a sheet of ice. Pete brought the boxes down to the house awhile ago and I am waiting for them to come up to room temperature before putting those away.

I am taking tomorrow off from work as my mom is having some medical tests done at a non-local hospital and I am going to go with her. I'm packing some overnight items just in case they are needed.

I am envisioning an afternoon with popcorn and Netflix. I'm hoping to read for a bit and also some time to search for a new quilt pattern. That might be sorting through some in my sewing room or maybe finding something altogether new online. I have a retreat coming up and it's time to plan! Speaking of planning, I also need to make a list for Pete of the items I would like to incorporate into this year's garden. He likes to play the layout at this time of year. I have taken a real liking to Thai Eggplant which uses Japanese Eggplant. Have any of you ever grown Japanese eggplant and might be able to suggest a certain variety?

Stay warm!
