In spite of my recent grumbling (I’m not doing so well on my 21 Day No-Complaining Challenge), there are definitely some good things about this prolonged cold snap. Yesterday, I admitted defeat and cancelled all my piano classes. That meant I had a whole day to do whatever I pleased.
Jamie and I made donuts. I haven’t made donuts since I was a kid and I had forgotten how delicious fresh warm donuts are. Then I spent a big chunk of the day reading. I finished “Fall On Your Knees” by Ann-Marie MacDonald. I picked it up because it was set in Cape Breton, but I have to say I didn’t enjoy it one bit. It was one big depression fest. I ended up getting angry with the author because there was absolutely no break in the horrible things that happened. Not on my recommended list for sure, even if it is on Oprah’s.
Here is a wonderful account of the pilgrimage, should you like to know more.
