Hello Cold Weather!


Started out with 60F this morning but by lunchtime it had dropped 10 degrees. By afternoon feeding time it had dropped another 10 degrees. Suppose to be in the low 30's tonight so I have a nice fire going. Sitting in the rocking chair drinking hot chocolate and trying to sort soap shipping receipts. All the animals have extra straw in their beds to snuggle into. I filled the wood rack on the back porch so I am nice and cosy. I just love cold weather! Hopefully it will stay cold and this year we will have snow. Will be nice to wear a jacket while doing morning chores. Nothing like cold fresh air to get your day started. Time for bed. Have a blessed one!

Amen! I love winter too. I want a REAL snow this year so, so, so, much! Not a light powdering. Not flakes that fall and melt. One where you grab an extra blanket, put on some hot tea/coffee/cocoa and just snuggle up. Then, when you do venture outside and the icy air hits your face it is so invigorating. Makes me feel so alive and energized. Yep, I loves me some winter weather. =)

This post really paints a picture for me. I like the cold weather too. I awoke this cool a.m. to my cat sleeping on my head at the top of my pillow!!!

Peggy I think you are a warped woman!!! lol. I don't like it cold!!! But I do like having a fire in the stove. The house is so cold when I wake up though. I have to learn how to pack the stove with wood and adjust the air so it will slow burn until I get home.

but who knows...it could be 80 out on thanksgiving day!

Sounds wonderful! Gosh we are getting cool here and it comes and goes. My husband will not turn off the air. He is a nut and this is a guy that fusses because I burn lamps.I think I am going to put the heating blanket on today. it is dual so he can cut his off =)

I agree with you. I love the snow too. It is 60 outside right now but the weatherman says that we may get snow later this week. Last year we had our first snowfall mid November. Northern Maine had 6 inches last week. This is one of the reasons I live in Maine. LOL
