OMG it’s cold, and it has raised a degree since earlier this morning, it’s now -11. :p

Yesterday I had called for a ride to work, and was informed that they were unable to get me, which was fine. During the night, I had gotten woke up by a horrible migraine. I hate it when they are that bad, that they wake me up in pain. I couldn’t take a med because it makes me sleepy, but once I found out I wasn’t going to be going to work, I called the boss and took a sick day. And then I immediately took one of my migraine meds and drifted back to sleep. About six or so hours later it was down to a five on the ten scale. Manageable but still owies.

I called/texted for a ride last night, and they were able to get me this morning. So I’m in. 🙂
And have been informed that I might get to leave at 3:30 today, that would be awesome!! I need some more migraine meds… I think it’s the barometric pressure that is not allowing this migraine to just go away. UGH! Hopefully the boss says yes! 😀 (The news comes from the ‘big’ boss. :D)

Anywho it is very dangerously cold outside, if you don’t need to be outside, DON’T!
If you do, please be sure to dress appropriately, in layers, tuck your pants inside of your boots, helps keep the warmth in, cover your head, nose and mouth- hats and scarves. Ensure you have gloves, and use them.
Also be sure to stay hydrated, most people don’t know you can still dehydrate in the winter. Moisturize your hands and feet after they have been warmed up. Keep your socks dry, and change them if they get wet.

Stay warm, stay safe and have a great day!

***OOOOH! Update! the Big Boss says I can leave at 3:30, and he is the ‘Big’ Boss! 😀

Distaff Day 2014
January 7, 2014 in the World

Distaff Day is observed on January 07, 2014. Distaff Day, also called Roc Day, is the day after the feast of the Epiphany. It is also known as Saint Distaff’s Day, one of the many unofficial holidays in Catholic nations. Many St. Distaff’s Day gatherings were held, large and small, throughout local fiber community. The distaff, or rock, used in spinning was the medieval symbol of women’s work. In many European cultural traditions, women resumed their household work after the twelve days of Christmas. Women of all classes would spend their evenings spinning on the wheel. During the day, they would carry a drop spindle with them. Spinning was the only means of turning raw wool, cotton or flax into thread, which could then be woven into cloth. Men have their own way of celebrating this occasion; this is done through Plough Monday. It is the first Monday after Epiphany where men are supposed to get back to work.

Old Rock Day 2014
January 7, 2014 in the World

Old Rock Day is celebrated on January 7th of each year. It is a perfect opportunity to learn a little something about fossils and other old rocks.

Ever since recorded history began, and probably before, people have noticed and gathered fossils, including pieces of rock and minerals that have replaced the remains of biologic organisms, or preserved their external form. Fossils themselves, and the totality of their occurrence within the sequence of Earth’s rock strata, is referred to as the fossil record.

The fossil record was one of the early sources of data relevant to the study of evolution and continues to be relevant to the history of life on Earth. Paleontologists examine the fossil record in order to understand the process of evolution and the way particular species have evolved.
