We just hit -17 degrees F. (that's -27 C ) and it is only midnight-it will get worse before it gets better. It wouldn't be shocking in February, but for December, this is very cold. I need to go out tomorrow-wish me luck. I think it is going to be an alpaca socks sort of day.
We have an ice storm and sub-zero temperatures headed our way tonight, so I spent the day out and about doing errands. I'll brave the cold, and reasonable amounts of snow, but ice is not worth the risks. We took treats to the Friends of the Library volunteers today, and even managed to visit a couple thrift stores before heading home. I'm going to take advantage of the snow/ice day to do a bit of baking and stocking the freezer with meals. Anyway, no reason to go out looking like a bundled-up frump when I own such a warm faux leopard jacket.
I had my bag on the counter at Hand-Me-Ups as I was paying for my purchases and the woman at the register tried to ring it up! We had a good laugh because I'd bought it there a few months ago, and she'd remembered seeing it around the shop. Generally speaking, if it didn't come from Hand-Me-Ups, it came from Goodwill or Thrift World. My shopping universe is quite narrow.

2 dashes bitters
Stir well with ice. Strain into glass sand serve with a cherry.
Here's a little song Mr. ETB wrote
(to the tune of "That's Entertainment")
Oh their paws
when they're playing with string
Oh their eyes
when they're looking at things
and their ears
when they're listening to things...
Yes, he has hundreds of these songs, most of which I can't put in print.
