The Last Day

The end of 2018 is going out with shivers of major cold here in Central Canadia. I am working the evening shift but starting one hour early (as we do every Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve) so that all of our patients and staff can have the time to do whatever things people do on those two eves. I myself did nothing on Christmas Eve, and tonight after work will be spent just getting back home to the warmth of my tiny house, the company of the kitties, and maybe watching some Netflix to unwind.

Because right now, it is:

(I live where the air hurts my face.)

I will venture forth dressed like the Michelin Man, in my midcalf length down coat, toque pulled down to my eyebrows and scarf pulled up over my face and nose. (Frostbite likely in mere minutes at this temperature.) Even my glasses will be safely tucked into my pocket, as they will just frost up from my breath moving up the scarf to escape by my eyes. I will want to be wearing sunglasses but won't. The frame of the sunglasses sitting on the bridge of my nose gets cold enough to give me brain freeze in this weather! Maybe I need to find some thin neoprene to line the bridge of my sunglasses for a little temperature shield.

So I am taking this opportunity to wish all of you, my fellow bloggers, a Very Happy New Year! And may 2019 bring you peace, health and contentment in your lives.


  1. That's more freezing than freezing, that's like extra freezing!!
    Stay warm, and Happy New Year!!!!

  2. YIKES! Let's be careful out there.

    Happy New Year to you and the kitties!

  3. I hope you had a good holiday season. Stay warm and stay safe, Ponita.

    Happy New Year!!!


    I wish you and your loved ones a Wonderful and Amazing New Year! May the New Year bring you lots of joy, laughter, and love.

  4. Hello Miss Bibendum ! Take care, don't freeze onto something.
    Happy new year and all.

    (If you wonder, the Michelin figure once was called "Bibendum", but I think it did not "stick".)


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
