When I woke up this morning there was ice everywhere. My car has quite a thick layer of ice covering it. Hubby texted me saying that the roads were pretty bad and the local schools were closed. Needless to say I did not go anywhere either. I did go up to my craft room for a little while - not long, couldn't sit in the chair for long. I think I'm going to order one of those cushions for tail-bone issues. I think this is going to take longer to heal than I first thought. The pain is a lot more manageable but it still hurts. I did make some muffins - only from a mix I had in the cupboard, but I'm determined to use up things I have on hand and baking them made the house smell lovely.
I worked on getting taxes done. Yuck. Not a favourite thing to do, but necessary. My middle son was going to bring his for me to do today, but because of the weather he's staying home. It's about a 40 minute drive from him to me so I'm glad he stayed put. I worry when any of them drive in lousy weather. I know they grew up driving here, but I still worry (suppose it's a Mum thing!).
Thanks for the tips on blocking. I might try it on my ironing board. I could do it in bits. If it doesn't work I can think about other methods, but as I'm trying to save some money I'll try it the free way first!
The birds in the garden seem really hungry today. It's probably the weather. I hope it's not a clue of what's to come! I've had to put extra food out twice today. There were so many starlings (greedy things!) along with the usual mix of sparrows, blue jays, cardinals, wrens, mourning doves and squirrels. The sparrows seem to like out front more. I think it's because things are a little calmer out there. They hide out in the bushes - I think they might live there!
I'm hoping the weather will be better tomorrow. This is the time when winter seems to drag on! Hope everyone had a lovely Tuesday. If you've got sunshine please try blowing a little bit this way - I could certainly use it!
