It is nearly zero here today. I layered up with an extra heavy scarf and put the coat on the little guy and took them both outside to do their business. The wind chill went right through my many layers and got me in the lungs. I'm now coughing like crazy and hope that in that 15 min I didn't get bronchitis or flu. I feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest. This is the part I hate about living here!

Keep warm & drink lots of liquids!! For the record - every time I went to AZ in the winter I would get extremely sick. I can be here all winter and not even catch a cold. One week in AZ and I'm a mess. I think it's that Valley Fever stuff that I pick up so easily.

Vicks is great - rub it on your chest.

I'm off to a good start in 2014 with my retirement part-time job. Just got back from work today where I earned $536 in 3 hours. Including today, I've gone to work 3 times in the past week for a total of 11 hours and earned $321, $25, & today's $536. That's $882 for 11 hours, or roughly $80/hr. At this rate, I may never want to return to Las Vegas.

Beats being a greeter at WalMart.

I almost tried prostitution once.

Unfortunately I was told I would have to buy one of those coin changers that you wear on your belt ... just in case someone had a big coin like a quarter.

For the first time in my life, I actually dressed as if I live in the cold Northeast. Thermal underwear and multiple layers. Even added a pair of mittens over my gloved hands. (My rheumy and cardiologist would be so proud of me!)

The temperature is predicted to hit 58 degrees Saturday. That will be a wonderful treat and a reason to celebrate. Perhaps a good bottle of wine and my favorite dark chocolate. Yikes, that sounds too perfect!

LMAO Ani!!! Madman, do tell!!!!!!

Officer Clark I could sooo see you as a gentleman escort. That's a compliment. With your sense of style, manners and sensitive side that would be hugely marketable. There is a shortage of gents out there when we reach 55. With that house of three talented gents I have visions of the movie Night Shift in my head already!!!!!!!

lenora, I'm with you. Last night we drank to DH's hip hurting wicked bad in this cold, Sunday we will drink to the heat wave. As far as that CDC story on how Americans are overdoing with alcohol, you would think they would smarten up as the tax revenues from alcohol sales support them. DOH!

The wind has finally ceased and the horses will finally be released from being hostages in the barn for the last two days. The cold doesn't bother them but the wind is very bad for them. We wanted to build a run in shed for them last summer but when DH ran over his leg with a lawn tractor that was history.

It's cold ... in the 20's. I'm off today.

I've been thinking about what to wear when I go into town for lunch in about an hour or two. I'm gonna wear my charcoal black Ralph Lauren woolen trousers that are warm (no, I am not a slave to designer labels, but these were my size and drastically reduced on sale), a light gray - dark gray- blue - white V-neck argyle sweater, blue shirt, gray 3/4 length warm wool coat with gray faux fur collar, and my new "newsboy" cap.

Hows that for "dapper" ladies?!

It's going up to the 50's on Friday and Saturday, but will not reach the promised 60's they predicted a few days ago.

Winter time gardening chore: this is the month I severely prune back the rose bushes in the back yard. Something about being dormant now makes it a good time to prune.

Officer Clark, love the outfit! Nothing better than someone who takes the time to dress well. Can't stand people who don't.
