And that really sums it up how I feel today. We had no heat at work all day and it was minus 4 with windchill outside at about 20 below. It was 40-45 in the restaurant where I am the manager. We froze. I am in awe of the people that have to work outside in these kind of conditions. I can not even imagine how cold they are. The guys that worked on my heating system throughout the day, spent most of their time on the roof working in that cold. I was ashamed to complain that we were cold!!
You can not believe how good my HOT shower felt tonight. I didn`t want to get out.
So the next time you see someone outside working in the heat or cold, smile, wave, whatever you can do, to show you appreciate what they do for us!!

whirl into winter giveaway!

I have spent the day registering at all the sites and WOW, there are some great blogs out there. I will have to spend some more time looking them all over.
Here is one that loves batiks as much as me.
So get out there and play!! After all it is way to cold to go outside.

My list!

I have decided that I need to finish all the quilts I have in various stages. So tomorrow when I am off work, I am going to make a list and post on the side of this blog. As I finish one, I will mark it off. I vow not to start another one until at least one is finished. So if one gets marked off, one will be allowed to be started. That way my UFOs will not grow!! The only exception to this will be blocks for a swap, they will be allowed! NOW does anyone else want to join me in this endeavor???
If you do, let me know and I will add your name to my list. It is always easier to do things when you do it with others.
