I know that the thermometer shows 10 degrees, but the TV says that it's five and with the wind chill factor it is well below zero. Luckily I have no place to go. Out weekly FiberWorks meeting was cancelled due to the weather. The snow has stopped and we didn't get as much as anticipated, maybe 4 or 5 inches, but with the frigid temps it will be here for awhile. I can hear the wind howling out there. Tomorrow I am going to NYC to see the Nutcracker at Lincoln Center. It is supposed to be just as cold, so we will surely bundle up. My new down coat should be just the ticket.
I spent most of New Year's Eve day and New Year's day untrimming the house. Everything is put away and the house looks so different. This arrangement on my kitchen table is all that's left. It is fresh and has held up remarkably well, but I will dispose of it in a few days, too.
After the holidays I like to have some fresh flowers in the house that are very "un-Chrstmasey". As soon as I can get to the store I will buy something, but for now these silk peonies will have to fill the bill.
