{Theme Thursday} Dozen

It's time for Theme Thursday with Cari at Clan Donaldson

So, this has been an interesting day.

Last night, I wasn't feeling well, pretty sure there's a sinus cold coming on, so I went to bed about 7:30.

I was up at 5, and after a couple painkillers, feeling well enough to trudge my way out to the gym.

My car didn't start.  Wouldn't start.  Just made a sound like a buzzer going off.


After I got back from the gym (my husband got a warmed up car out of the deal because I had to take his!), my husband and I tried to get my car to jump start in the *delightful* -16 wind chill.  

Ugh.  This has been happening a couple times a year for the last two years.  Every time I have my car tested, there is no diagnosis.  It works JUST FINE for them.  My car is possessed and I hate it.  Maybe I should use holy water on it instead of calling a tow truck to yank it up on the bed like a repo and send it off for expensive testing.

There's a dozen things I needed to do today.....but instead, this happened:



So, making the best of a day stuck in the house, Little Bean and I made this dozen happen:



She was in charge of the sugar, and I think we're all going to have diabetes if we let her cook much more.

Although, I made her this yesterday, and she hasn't taken it off yet, so I feel there may be some more cooking in her future:


All in all, I think it's a sign I should go back to bed and sleep off this cold to nip it in the bud.

    1. It was -23 the day before, so that was actually a bit of a warm-up :P We trade frigid temps for being close to family.

  5. I remember when I used to live in Michigan, as some point, it didn't even matter how much colder it got. It was all just B.S. As in, you'd say, "Hey, what's the weather supposed to be today?" and the angry reply would be, "B.S.!" Or, "The wind chill is 50 below B.S."
    I think -16 qualifies as B.S.

    1. IL weather is pretty similar to weather I've experienced in MI, except my grandma always got lake effect snow, and the white-out conditions are much more infrequent here. I agree, anything below about 15 is all B.S.
