An Inside Kind Of Day

It was SO cold this morning when I stepped out to make a sunrise photo. And it hasn't warmed up much since then. I do not own clothes for the days when it is 33 degrees in the afternoon.

So I plan to stay in for the rest of the day. Sit by the fire. Sip hot tea. Catch up on last week's Downton Abby. And make substantial progress on the Madison Scarf. Today is certainly the day for a warm scarf. But if you know how our weather works here in the South, by the time I finish this knitting project in a couple of days, we are likely to be back in flip flops. That's why people move here from colder places. It's not that we never have cold weather. But when a cold front moves in, it doesn't last long.

While I am lucky enough to stay inside, Daddy-O still has to feed the cows. They are especially appreciative on days like today. If we get the possible sleet in the morning, they will be even more excited to see the hay coming their way.

Wherever you are, I hope you are warm and cozy this afternoon.

My Valentine surprise.

I went to church in my Eskimo parka with the temp at 17. Think that was the high for the day. Now the snow is coming down at a clip and we expect 3-4 inches by morning. Then the rain is to move in. The snow plows are out already. A good night to snuggle under a fleece throw and enjoy PBS.

Beautiful sunrise photo! You look pretty cozy there in front of the fire. Happy Valentine's Day to you and Daddy-O.

Thank you. But you are the queen of Valentine celebrations! We had a heart-shaped pizza tonight.
