We've had the entire season of winter in one week. 10" of snow, record-breaking lows, more snow tonight and tomorrow... and because of this, I didn't get a whole lot done this week other than mail auction stuff and be very happy I was off work so I didn't have to deal with the commute in such nasty weather. 

Auction-wise, I'm within $100 of my goal, which is very nice! 

Weather-wise, this is the first night in a few that I won't have to get up to babysit my boiler to make sure nothing went wrong. With the system down a key radiator, it just could not cope with low single digits and minus zero weather. I will be working towards getting something for the kitchen for next year; possibly a pellet stove. 

I did make jam-- cherry and blueberry lime. I did clean up the kitchen. I did not get into the craft room or finish the library/office... yet. I did not get as much writing done as I wanted to, and I haven't even started typing in A Glint of Silver. That will have to happen when I'm not so worried about the weather. 

I did spin. I wove a bit. I did relax. I did watch Season 1 of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. I did drink a lot of hot tea to keep warm. 

I did discover that mittens are warmer than gloves. 

I wish I had another week off, but alas. I'll have to be happy with what I did get done, and I'm definitely happy that everything survived the record cold temperatures intact... so far.
