The Weather Outside Is Frightful
Right now it is 9 degrees out and with the windchill it is -8 degrees. I know that cold is relative to the one experiencing it. I saw a FB friend who lives in the South mentioning how cold it was the other day - it was 41 degrees! I know its a lot colder there now! Winter has definitely arrived!
This is my view this morning. I have my chair turned to the window with my feet by the heater vent! My warmth is being offset by the draft from this old bay window! This is on our list to be replaced!
I am happy to stay indoors and work on de-cluttering, and taking the Christmas decor down. It's happening bit by bit.
I'm having trouble parting with my lovely tree. It is in such good shape still and smells so good! I took all the ornaments and ribbons off on Tuesday but I am still enjoying the tree with just the lights for a few more days. It will probably go out to the pasture on Saturday.
This little tree with my silver is still making me happy, so I'll keep it up for a while. The other garlands will probably go back to storage though. Bit by bit, it will all come down, and I'll be ready for the freshness of change.
The poinsettia is doing well. Getting lots of light from our sliding doors. This poor thing has no idea how cold it is outside!
We will finish our schoolwork this morning, and then since we can't go outside, I have declared a movie marathon for this afternoon. Gotta keep the restless natives happy! (including Mama!)
What about you? What's the temperature where you are?
