Guess I should have checked the temperature BEFORE I went outside. Jesse and I went out to clear some of the big snow fall that we had overnight. I was frozen after a few minutes and Jesse (more wrapped up than myself) complained after 5 minutes. The windchill was -38c!!!!

Normally I would leave it for Ron to do with snow-blower -- however it is the Santa parade in town tonight and we wouldn't have been able to get the van out of the drive. The was around 3 feet of snow on one side.

I had to put down my knitting to test a crochet pattern for somebody. But I am not "too" far off finishing Jesse's cable pullover. Some progress on sleeve #1. Should take en eternity considering they it's for a 3 year old.

A little bird told me (my DH is lousy at keeping secrets) that I am getting a new digital camera for Xmas. Now I wonder how he knew which one??? My guess is that he saw me reading Terri's blog about her new Nikon.

No good news on the sick relatives - well not too much anyway. FIL had his triple bypass on Wednesday. So far so good.... I am not saying a word more.
MIL was trying to get comfortable in her hospital bed and was lifting herself up. The nurse in the room heard a crack and MIL had broken her arm. So she is being taken by ambulance to Edmonton to have that pinned.
Needless to say, we are not telling FIL until he is well on the way to recovery.
