Meals were pretty simple at our house today on this the coldest day of the winter with a high of 4 degrees. The Brat sandwich for lunch and vegetable soup for supper were ideal following an oatmeal breakfast. Of course, there were seconds and a serving of ice cream entered the picture after lunch. I got out this morning for coffee and some business at the bank. And, represented the City Council at the Library Board meeting this afternoon, will meet briefly with the Senior Service Commission this evening and then go on to see the Seward HS girls win their 68th consecutive basketball game. I did put on my blanket-lined pants and a wool shirt to keep warm.
