Baby, It's C-O-L-D Outside!!!

Forgive me for not posting anything in a while. It’s been so cold my fingers don’t want to work! Did I tell you how much I hate the cold weather? To our neighbors up north in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, or even upstate New York - please don’t send me any e-mails or responses telling me “You think you have it bad!”. My blessings to you if you can survive in the cold and the snow. It’s just not for me. Here where I live you might find it balmy, but I’m a warm-weather girl at heart, I guess, and wind chill factors of 6 degrees doesn’t do it for me. I can’t imagine anyone finding enjoyment in getting out in the snow and cold to ski or snowboard or even spend a little time ice-skating. My idea of a winter sport is the 2 yard dash to the closet for another comforter! Saturday was so bitterly cold when the wind cut right through you. I am praying for the spring’s arrival soon. I spend my days off huddled under a blanket and my days during the week wearing jackets at work.

For some dessert to go with that whine: My husband and I are celebrating our 30th year of marriage this year. For something special we’ve booked a cruise to the Southern Caribbean for 11 nights! 11 nights at sea! Now that’s for me – turquoise waters, sunny days, watching sunsets from the deck, watching sunrise on the balcony of your cabin while sipping your breakfast coffee…I’m there already. Now to turn in my vacation request here at work.


  1. Wanna trade places for say...11 days? Kidding. Hope you ahve a great time and congratulations!!

  2. I'm with you on the Spring-thing! Sometimes during the winter, I can happily spend an entire weekend without going out of the house. Happy Anniversary!

  3. Oh Jeannie, you've got me laughing here, especially about that 2-yard dash to the closet for another comforter! I'm with you! I HATE the cold, and just KNOW God never intended for me to endure such cruel conditions! I WISH I could move south! You KNOW I hate moving, but I should have Shana watch for some apartment openings her way, huh?! I'm wearing so many layers just to keep warm, my clothes don't fit anymore (HOPE that's from the layers!).. and it takes me an HOUR just to use the little ladies' room! (0; Sorry.. more info than you needed?.. I'm just hanging in there and can't WAIT for Spring! Going to warm up the kitchen today, baking some banana bread!! ((hugs)) ~tina
