The Bag Lady had yesterday off from both her jobs, and decided to take a day off from blogging, too! She needed some time to get caught up on all her duties at home - laundry, bill-paying, organizing her new cabinets in her back porch. She didn't get everything done (is housework ever really finished?) but she did make some progress.
The weather was another factor in her decision to get some much-needed work done inside her house. It snowed all day yesterday! The temperature never rose above freezing, and it was depressing to look outside. It's much too early for it to be this cold - the normal average temperature here for this time of year is around +11C. Yesterday's high temperature was only -3C. And the cold snap is expected to continue for the next five days. Sigh. She really hopes that it does warm up before winter actually sets in - she still has to dig the potatoes and turnips in her garden!
The Bag Lady is looking forward to the Thanksgiving weekend, though. She does have to work the evening shift tonight, then the day shift Saturday and Sunday, but has invitations for two different Thanksgiving meals - one on Sunday and another on Monday! She will resemble a stuffed turkey herself after eating two meals prepared by two such fabulous cooks.
The weather is also forcing the Rancher to think seriously about bringing the cows home. If it remains this cold and the water supply where they are freezes, the cows will start wandering, looking for water. So there may also be cattle chasing and moving in the Bag Lady's immediate future!
She hopes all her Canadian blog-buddies have great Thanksgiving weekends, and everyone else has a great regular weekend!
