Today's favorite things:
We didn't get a lot of ice and sleet, just enough to make walking to the barn an adventure. Luckily, I remembered where I'd stored the new Snow Grippers. I ordered a couple pair of the pull-on ice cleats because I'm not as graceful on the ice as 30 years ago, and it hurts a lot more when I fall.
These nifty little traction tools are great - I was outdoors for an hour and didn't slip once. It's a good day when a middle-aged clutz can carry 4 eggs in her pockets across the ice without fear -- including the first precious goose egg of the year.
