It's the coldest day of the year so far. The thermometer hit a low of 20°F last night and the high today isn't above freezing. Tonight may be even colder.
I'm having the best kind of cozy winter day at home.
Vegetable beef soup has been simmering in the crockpot on low heat since yesterday afternoon. It's making the whole house smell good.
I'm reading The Once and Future King by T.H. White. It's like reading it for the first time since I was probably only 13 years old (or thereabouts) when I read it before. It's excellent so far. I like wandering around ancient England with the Wart.
Later on today, I'm planning to resurrect my long-dead knitting project. I saw a hat on Facebook this morning made by a member of a local knitting group that was truly beautiful. The urge to begin knitting again is upon me. I'd better take advantage of it and see if any progress can be made on this cowl. I'm longing to wear it eventually.
One last thing I plan to do today, no matter what, is take the dogs down to the park at the end of the street. They need a good walk (so do I) and they love our little neighborhood park. A pair of large red bellied woodpeckers live there, and dozens of squirrels. It should be deserted otherwise on a cold weekday afternoon like this.
Have a good day, my friends.
