January 22,2014

Ohmigod....enough already with winter!!  The month of January has been miserable and it doesn't look like it is going to improve any.  We have had lots of snow, followed by more snow.  We had something now being called a Polar Vortex that brought -16 degrees (-40 degrees with the wind chill) along with a huge snow. There was, however, one day when it got above freezing and then we had a LOT of rain and everything flooded.  My garage floor is flooded and is now a big ice cube.  I think everyone is about ready to blow their brains out.  December was no bargain either!

The 21st Annual "Frozen Butts" workday was this past Saturday.  With no other options, I had the pot luck following the workday at my house.  I had to rent some tables and chairs as I really have none.  The tables and chairs were delivered Friday night and I spent the evening baking cookies for the workday and setting everything up.  I had people drop off their food on the way to the workday because I had no one to "house sit".  After the last person dropped off food, I drove to the cul-de-sac, loaded up all the power equipment and the workday began. 
It was another cold and miserable day weather-wise, but as always the other volunteers have a way of brightening up the workday.  We tried to get one of the large brush piles burning, but it was built on a small stream of water, and apparently there was ice under the pile and it would not ignite.  So we had to start small with a bit of brush and keep building till we had a good fire going to handle all of the stuff being cut. 

The house was crowded for the pot luck, but we managed.  All in all, it was a great workday, but I am also always glad when it is over.

I also went out to Hickory Creek Junction to burn brush piles for a few hours last Tuesday and also did another workday at Sugar Creek Administration on January 12th. 

I brought out my Y-Wing Pilot project again.  I have a feeling that if I don't finish the project this time around, I never will.  I also have pieces of my Hoth Commander costume back and am trying to alter them to fit someone else.  The truth of the matter is, I probably would have never gotten around to wearing it anyway.
