Here's the deal - I don't WANT to do it. Life isn't about extremes that you can or can't handle, is it?

Sheeze. These same people will be huffing and puffing about how freaking oppressively hot it is when it's over 85 degrees, when I'm thinking around 85 degrees "Wow, it's nice outside." At 90 degrees, when some people are literally dying of heat stroke, I'm thinking, "Might want to turn on a fan..."


Today it was about 68 and sunny - and fabulous - here in Northeast Texas. No complaints, no apologies - just enjoying it.

I'm saying that I can't be comfortable without a coat in 40s weather objectively, I've been in weather like that without a coat, and get uncomfortably cold within 30-60 seconds

I much prefer a jacket and a scarf over going without when it's in the 40s. I mean, what's not to like? It's not like I have to bundle up like an Eskimo.

Winter has been really bogus this year. No snow now. Just frozen puddles at the moment. Ugh. Looks like November outside.

Today I wore cropped pants, no socks, flimsy shoes and a cotton shirt. This is pathetic. Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 50s which beats the 70s but still...and rain is forecast for Friday. Apparently the new normal is five inches of rain every time it rains so I'm just hoping my mud in my back yard dries up before the next onslaught.

This is what January is supposed to look like, in my book.

No, thank you. But thank God it never looks like that here.

It's in the 40s today and gray and overcast (pretty much like January is "supposed" to be in my book), and I don't even want to go outside. Thank goodness for a nice warm house, a fire in the fireplace tonight when it dips down into the 30s, and a nice cup of hot tea. And thank goodness that next month I'll be outside cleaning out my flower beds and planning what flowers to plant in March.

It is beautiful.....but cold. But again, if I'm inside, with a bourbon, it's perfect

Watched it snow for about twenty minutes yesterday, just long enough to remark how pretty those big fat white flakes were, and then it was gone. My favorite kind of winter day.

The roads were in better shape today and I was driving around to do various things. There is nothing compared to the beauty of driving through a wooded area with literally everything covered in glistening, white snow. It looks like a fairy tale land.
