Blizzard weather here in the north

This is a picture I took at noon yesterday... COLD!!! The winds were gusting over 50 mph. Today the wind chill has temps WAY below zero. Al and I spent some time outside cleaning the driveway, the porch and walkways. We got out to go to town but there isn't much happening. I think most people are staying inside.
So with this cold, windy weather I just stayed in and kept warm... sewing in my room. Finished up a few Christmas presents... now just a couple more to complete and I'll be done. I did a little baking... got the gingerbread men done. I need to have LOTS of cookies baked in the next few days because I send them off to my brothers in CA. Usually I wait till last minute so that I don't have all those goodies around tempting Al and I. If I make the sugar cookies too early, they all get eaten and I have to bake them all over again. :)

We've had the snow here in North Dakota, but not so much wind, thank goodness!

What a beautiful picture, but it does look COLD!
I just love gingerbread men, did you put gumdrop buttons? You know, like in Shrek.
Glad your staying warm.
Happy Christmas to you & Al.

That is the beauty of winter, being able to stay in our warm homes and doing things we enjoy. Glad you were able to get your cookies done early this year!

I've been slowly pushing myself back to quilting. My back pain gets terrible in the mid day so early morning is the best time to sew.  ...
