I really am not good at keeping up this blogging stuff. I apologize.
Yes we are still alive and kicking it.
Yes there is still SO MUCH snow here.
Yes I have the winter blues!
I didn't think experiencing a winter like this could have that much effect on a person's mood. But I can affirm it can!!
We went through a 2 week period where the temperature did not go above -30. By the end of the 2 weeks I was going crazy wondering why the heck did we come out here!!
Since it has warmed up a bit I've come back to my senses.. a little.
Never will I take for granted a chinook wind ever again!
It's hard to find entertaining things to do when the weather is that cold. You don't ever want to go outside, because it's just too much work!
Get all bundled up(and even then it's never enough!)
Scrape your car windows
Let your car run for about 20 minutes
Go run your errand
Try and keep calm with all the idiot drivers who act like they've never seen snow (I thought this was normal for Saskatoon, then WHY can't Saskatoon people drive!?)
Try not to take too long in the store because your car is still warm and you want it to stay that way
Hurry back home
And SPRINT inside
Because literally my lungs just collapsed from that dry, bitter, cold air!
And I can promise if you did that once already that day, you are NOT going to do it again.
Luckily I have a kind husband who will scrape my windows and start my car for me:)
My sister made me this fun wheat bag and it has saved my life numerous times! I carry this with me all over the house! I even sleep with it.
This was a day out of that 2 week period.
That windchill makes everything WORSE.
I got knitting and crocheting supplies for christmas!
I'm not very good at up keeping that hobby either.
But I'm tryin!
This is what happens when the temperature drops that bad.
A STATIC MESS.
Saskatoon you aren't impressing me thus far.
Storm's hockey injury.
I guess he forgot his elbow pads!
So proud of myself.
I made homemade taco shells!
First try wasn't too much of a success, but once I found the perfect recipe they turned out great! And they taste so much better than store bought! Plus I know what's really in them..
Reading week is coming up and we're so excited! Storm more than me because he's actually going home all week. I'm not:( Dumb work is why!
But I guess work isn't too dumb when they're letting me take 2 days off to go home for the weekend at least!
Counting down the days to
warmer weather.. hopefully
I can't promise the next time I blog will be soon.
I will try though!
