Remember when I got those contact lenses for the first time in my life. . . hmmmm . . . back in October, I think. Getting them in has been a trial. I managed to get them in myself two days in a row over Christmas. Tenacious vanity won over easy practicality. But now I keep losing my glasses. So this morning, I tried to get them in without glasses and it's the blind leading the blind only it's just me and myself because I got a little cranky with Mr. and he left for work and so it's just me and my blurry fingertips and somewhere on there, an invisible contact lens.
Anyway, found my glasses, so it's back to easy practicality. It's a million degrees below zero here in the tundra they call Minnesota. However, it's never too cold for our state pastime.
Last year, the lakes were frozen and there was no snow, so it was like having the world's largest rink. This year, we had (ok, my brother-in-law) to shovel a little rectangle to fit the family and someone got a little crazy and shoveled a path along the lake.
Even our dogs play hockey. True story.
Merry Christmas (a day late and a cup of coffee too short) to all of you and happy holidays to the rest.
ps. If you're wondering about my knitting, I did not finish the scarf for my niece. Instead, she'll be getting a nice little package in the mail. Hopefully before New Years.
