cold COLD cold

WOW has it turned cold! I have a long sleeved shirt & long jeans on today. I had to wear a jacket while walking the dog! I thought I moved to Florida not the North Pole!
Where are all those folk talking about global warming? I know they cant be here today! The flag is blowing so hard it sometimes sounds like a gun firing. Other times it sounds like its gonna blow away down the street.

Maybe some HOT coffee, Hot tea or a Hot Toddie is in order for toady! UM Hubby makes the best Hot Toddie! Don't have a fire place here so cant build a fire and snuggle up to it. But the bed and quilts seem in order for today! after the Hot Toddie!

I even searched the cabinet for some comfort food- Oatmeal! None to be found so ended up warming milk & putting over some oatmeal squares!

I do have a cold so that makes it even worse, went to the doc yest and have sinus infection! So am on antibiotics-having chills- that doesn't help with the cold weather! Yep it's under the quilts, & hot toddie for me! Good book, music and being left alone!

The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.

So sorry to hear you're not well. Do curl up under a quilt with a lovely hot drink!

It's cold here, too. Absolutely freezing!!! I've been taking a hot water bottle to bed with me every night.

Get well soon.

I had the cold for the last 2 weeks. No fun. Please, Mommanator, would you post the recipe for the hot toddy? If your husband doesn't mind sharing it, that is!

Florida cold.....gotta be kidding, that's right, it's over 60 there....HOT. Up here in the freezer we are talking 40's, make that maybe 30 with the cold moist windchill. I'll take your 55, and gladly give you our weather. Remeber, We had sleet yesturday. I'm even thinking of starting the fire....haven't gotten past thinking yet, because it's too cold to go outside to get wood.

The change in seasons always seems to bring about some horrible cold - at least for me. Snuggling under quilts does sound heavenly though . . . that's the best part of Fall and Winter for me.

We keep going up and down - it was very chilly yesterday, but I worked outside in a t-shirt today.

Hope you are feeling better soon.
