On Icy Cold and Windy:

This weekend just flew by and I just never seemed to get to the computer. I like to be busy, but not so busy that I can’t get to visit with my friends on the web.

The weather turned colder and we had a few minor emergencies. Nothing major, just frozen pipes and icy walkways. Cold jobs that take time and then you have to thaw your hands out afterwards.

We did manage to get some silly/sad icicles after the sun came out strong for a few hours the other day. They looked more like something you’d see on the Addams Family home, but I didn’t mind that they came to dress up my house for the day.

We’ve been keeping the wood stove well fed. I, for one, am glad that we cleaned out the chimneys last week and we don’t have to let the fires go out to clean them this week. It is just too cold out there.

Well I have a cup of tea waiting and some more jigsaw puzzles to do. If I work it out just right I won’t have to go too far from the wood stove at all today. May you have a warm cozy corner to curl up into also.

Oooh.. I lOVE the icicles! We don't get those much here in Georgia but I do love them so, which is probably why they decorate my Christmas tree every year.
We're tucked in here at Chez Mousie as well.. I went out to get the mail earlier and nearly froze my tail off!

Good evening, girlfriend! I'll have you know I got my buns out of bed and to the office this morning, despite sub-zero temperatures (and even colder wind-chill readings). Thanks for the kick in the arse. (I think it's the kickin' that keeps a person warm through all this, don't you?)

Warm, wooly hugs to you!
