wallowing in nearly 80 degree weather came to an abrupt end here by the bay as january schmanuary delivered a sensory jolt, a late Christmas present maybe?...a morning low temperature of 17. i am sure Little Man will let me know if i am in error here, but that's what the thermometer said! i had a split second of wishful thinking...did i transpose the numbers...was it really 71. a crack of the door to release hound patrol for morning business told me i had it right the first time...17. degrees. Fahrenheit. not Celsius.
what's a warm weather gal to do in times like these?
oh, i'll tell you! follow the wisdom of the hound patrol...
wrap yourself in fur...or at least something with the warming capabilities of fur~~ things like wool socks, flannel jammies, soft & thick bathrobes
find a good sunbeam & take a nap in it
lay down on the very softest thing by the fire
go outside (you need fresh air)...but hurry back inside!
find a good blankie & wrap yourself up
distractions are good...every once & awhile mosey into the kitchen for a bite to eat (yes, there is a fresh batch of Christmas cookies available for the next round of visitors!)
hang out with boyworld-on-vacation...their unique sense of adventure is always entertaining...
speaking of boyworld...how are they coping with the cold weather & Christmas break?? well, tonight as i made my goodnight-rounds, i found them enjoying this little gem...
will it blend: the garden hose edition
i could not believe my eyes! there are seemingly hundreds of videos of this science-type testing the blendability of just about anything you could imagine using a blendtec (new to me...i want one!) blender. after watching the blending of light bulbs, iPods (why???), magnets, & nutcrackers, i am left wondering if the boys will heed the scientific advice offered on each video..."do not try this at home." yeah, right. my poor, poor blender...may you be spared!
& with that, i bid you buona notte as i settle down for a long winter's nap (one likely plagued with dreams of things blended)!
