Well, the last few days have been interesting here in Texas. Some call it “Icemageddon”, others call it “Icepocalypse”, whatever your term, we were pretty much iced in for a few days. In my area, it got as thick as 4 inches in some places-including my car. That may not seem like much, but when it is a solid sheet of ice, it is a crap ton. In fact, when I went to thaw out my car Sunday in anticipation of potentially having to work Monday, there were two layers of ice. That’s a lot of ice. As luck would have it, campus was closed yesterday so I got to stay home again, which was nice. It’s still freaking cold, but that’s ok with me. The university it open again so I’m back to work. But 8 more work days and it is Winter Break. A full 2 weeks off with pay, nice. 🙂
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week. Ours was fun and enjoyable, just a little unusual.
A few weeks ago, our hot water heater sprang a leak and leaked into the house. We have been trying to take care of the problem, but there have been delays, so this is what our kitchen looked like:
But I did try a couple of new recipes this year.
It was pretty good, if a bit sweet for me.
Before you know it, Christmas will be here. Have you finished your Christmas knitting yet?
