hey it's cold outside

A solid dose of cold weather -- that's what we're having here, as it seems to be in most parts of the country. I love it, at least for awhile.

Here in the sunny south you may be cool in the morning, but by afternoon you shed your coat or sweater. But this week, in spite of sunny days, you can start out with a turtle neck and sweater, and wear it the whole day (plus a coat, scarf, hat, and gloves.) Brrr! Hot drinks coming right up! It is tempting to stay indoors, wrapped in a blanket.

How odd that our nearly new frig is freezing the food. I think we have a lemon. Meanwhile, the food is on the porch--it's a little less frozen there. I think there is some humor here somewhere, and I may find it--right after I finish listing the spoiled fresh veggies and other foods that they say we'll be reimbursed for.

And, how thankful we are that the Gardener is feeling better!


  1. I love the little houses in your window. Sorry about your fridge. Ours went out last year and was only a couple of years old. I know your pain.

  2. Hello Podso, I love the dainty design of your lacy curtain -so pretty!

  3. This cold weather is something isn't it? Hope you get your fridge problem worked out quickly!
    Keep warm!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  4. Glad they will reimburse you guys for the spoiled food. Love the curtains .....and a breath of goodness with the Gardener.
    Yes, brrrrrrrrrrrr............the North Wind is here.

  5. Oh, so glad you honey pie is feeling a difference now. Phew! Hard won, I know.

    And it IS cold. I've had just about enough but just told my husband that it's supposed to be a high of 36 tomorrow. Sounds almost warm!

    Pretty, pretty pics! Glad to hear the Gardener is feeling better!

    While we were building our house, we lived in a 40-year-old travel trailer, and kept our food in a cooler w/ snow. It worked great, but I hope I never have to do that again!

    Have a wonderful day,


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
