It's COLD here!

This picture says it all, brrrrrrrrrrrrr frigid out today, the high is 5 degrees for the day today.  The sun is out though so that helps a little bit, I think I'll stay inside where it's warm and work on finishing up three adorable rabbits I'm making.  If I just keep working hard I'll have more time to spend outside when it does warm up right....awww the thought of tulips blooming, I can't wait!!! 
My hopes of flying somewhere warmer during these cold winter months is on hold right now because we have a more important need to be here close by.  My 87 year old father in law is going to have open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve in the next few weeks.  VERY scarey but necessary or he will not make it much longer.  He has a 10% chance of major complications and a 30% chance of minor complications at his age.  He is in good overall health otherwise.  All of the opinions from the experts are for him to go for it.  It's going to be a bumpy ride.
Well I have to get to work now I'm at the home stretch with my rabbits, the fun part now giving them personalities!
