Baby it's cold outside. It's been below zero all day today. I spent the day in the living room with the fire going watching my bread dough rise. Broc laid in the chair nearest the fire & stretched out like a week's wash.
I was complaining to my DH about having to scrape the windows on the car at these low temps, & he suggested I try putting a big towel over the windshield. I tried it yesterday, & it worked like a charm. I turned the window wipers on just as I turned the car off, so they stopped in the up position, then tucked the beach towel under them, & they held it nicely in place. The frost developed on the towel, in the morning I just peeled it off, & gave it a little shake, no scraping! Love it!
Tomorrow night we have a party to go to at Mindy's. I'm the designated driver. Friday is our hospital party, then after that I'm getting back on my Weight Watcher routine. I've gained a few holiday pounds, & I can feel them. I think I'll ask my DH to go on with me. It helps if he's on board too.
Stay warm & Happy New Year!

Well, the fire and bread dough sound like a nice antidote to the cold! Love the beach towel trick, although I'll never need it down here.

Have a lovely New Year's Eve!
