Jan 16: This week I'm really grateful for sox knit by friends and the pair of mittens I inherited from my Grandpa. As for the handknit sox: I still have and use every single pair that I have been gifted in one way or another over the years, some more than a decade ago.#knitfastdiewarm #handknitsocks #knitting #knittersofinstagram #dailypic #2020

Jan 15: Some days start so early that you're glad that work calls are usually done without camera and no one sees that you didn't quite roll out of bed yet. There was coffee though. In other news: It's warming up. It will +3C or so by Monday. #butfirstcoffee #longdays #accountinglife #winterintheprairies #stillfrickincold #dailypic #2020

Jan 14: You know it's cold if you start checking the working temperatures even on the grease and go for the heavy duty one. This one is good to -73C. Now the door lock is as slick as the roads were today. But, warmer temps are just around the corner. My head is confirming that too by way of a migraine…#didhellfreezeoveryet #winterintheprairies #frickincold #wd40 #migrainessuck #migraine #chinook #dailypic #2020

Jan 9: I had to get a booster on one of my vaccines and was asked to bring in my records of previous vaccines. Well, this is it: My old East German health booklet that you'd get when you were born. The country may not exist anymore but the health record is without gaps. My old family doctor even kept using it until I moved to Canada. …#healthstuff #thoseshotsarenotfun #butneeded #vaccines #dailypic #2020
