A Bitterly Cold Week.

This has been a busy week for me. I had many visits to my dentist who is 10 miles away from my place. Cleaning off the car and driving in the cold isn’t much fun, but I assume the exercise is good for me. lol. It’s more difficult for Bill, with some loss of balance he nearly fell a few times, but I’m always there to catch him.
Heather, my quilting friend, and I, made pot luck supper for the ladies in our quilting group. I made the soup broth and the sweet and sour spareribs, she did the chicken wings, potatoes and salad. Thursday Maria and I went to the border to pick up our parcels, We keeping ordering fabrics from the States, but they weren’t in, so we had lunch at the First Nation Casino. When we started out the weather was fine but things changed in a hurry, by the time we headed home we hit a snow storm. It was foggy and the wind blew the snow across the road making it difficult to see at times. Friday and Saturday it was very cold, I’m grateful to Heather for picking me up in beautiful warm van with the warm seats to take us to our quilting retreat. Today was no better, it’s cold but we have no snow, unlike Minneapolis.

Quote ” Workers shovel snow off the roof of Mall of America Field at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis Sunday, Dec. 12, 2010. The inflatable roof of the Metrodome collapsed Sunday after a snowstorm that dumped 17 inches (43 cms) on Minneapolis. No one was hurt, but the roof failure sent the NFL scrambling to find a new venue for the Vikings' game against the New York Giants.

When I was growing up in this area we had winters like that, but now we have more moderate winters. We are truly blessed.
