My cyberspace absence is due much in part to the artic temperatures we’ve endured the past couple of days. It has been so cold here that I’ve been daydreaming about the life of a bear…umm a nice fur coat and able to hibernate through the winter. I actually should change my blog backdrop to a wintry one as fall seemed to come and go with record speed. They say it is only a cold snap but I am telling you it’s about done me in. I am a wimp in cold weather in fact I decided hell for me would be cold.
With no central heat….why you ask? For the life of me I CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT and it tends to drive me a bit crazy so stop asking (hee)! We walk around the house in multiple layers and winter garb, to include but not limited to a winter coat, gloves, and a scarf.
These were recent must haves to keep things semi-bearable.....
We have multiple heaters but can only use a few simultaneously or we trip the circuit and it ends up not only cold but dark. So we flip coins to see who gets to have the heater on in their room at night. Okay so I am kidding actually we substitute with the layers mentioned above, warm bedding and hot water bottles. My kid’s love the water bottles as do I. Tori just got a little one with a cute elephant covering as seen in the photo. Fun to cuddle with and they do keep the bed toasty at night.
So while you are drinking ice tea in your shorts and slathering on the SPF say a prayer for the frozen Franzens! I’ll try to keep blogging but it becomes a bit difficult to do with gloves on.
