It's been snowing like crazy here and the temperatures are heading down as the day goes on.
I finished reading my first book this year. It was The Midwife of Hope River by Patricia Harman and I though it was very good. It was a page turner for me. It's about Patience Murphy working as a mid-wife during depression in the Appalachia mountains of West Virginia.
The author lives in Morgantown, WV and works at a clinic there with her husband which is about 35 miles from where I live.
I also finished transferring all my Bible notes from the old Bible to the new one. So nice to be done with that. It took a lot longer than I expected it to.
Started another book, W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton. It was another of my Christmas gifts.
I walked down the end of the driveway to get the mail and it was mighty cold outside. The temperature was 8 and very windy with snow blowing sideways.
Did a little counted cross stitch this afternoon and now it's about time for me to make supper. We are having meatloaf, roasted potatoes and beans. Having the oven on will help to keep it warm and cozy in the kitchen. Sure am thankful for a nice warm house, even more so on days like this. Just checked the thermometer and it read 4. They say it will get down to -18 by morning. I've never been in a temperature that cold before. Guess I won't be walking outside in the morning!
Hope you're staying warm if you are in the wake of this blast of cold.
A happy day to you.

If you look at people that have survived
crashing in the mountains
and lived up in the snow for 40 days -
it's possible to do extraordinary feats.
