I know what you mean, Toots. I'd better dig out my shorts and tank tops.

Hey, 34 would feel great right now!
Especially if the sun came out, it was sunny here today but bitterly cold. Dogs didn't even get a walk, too cold.

I am in the cold as well, NOT FUN!

Actually thinking of NOT hoping on the bike in the morning, nearly froze my nips off today even with riding gear...

DH and I made a big pot of vegetable beef soup, which we've had two nights in a row. Tonight, we're having a break with some really good chili dogs, with homemade steak chili out of the freezer and some grated cheddar cheese.

Tomorrow, we'll go back to the soup.

You want weird? Last week my son in Alaska had record LOW temps, -47 and that sort of thing. Listen up Northeasterners - it's 37+ right now in Fairbanks! Go figure....
