Baby, It's Cold Outside

This may -- or it may not -- be my only post about my dislike of winter. It's been relatively mild this year, but as I was standing at the bus stop tonight my feelings about winter returned. I had my hat and gloves, but I'm so out of practice, I'd forgotten my scarf and the wind was whipping my neck, even though I was wearing one of my almost ubiquitous turtleneck sweaters.

I know I promised to begin our weekly book chats, but it's been a full week and I am so tired. The book post is postponed until tomorrow. Tonight I'm going to brew a cup of tea and curl up in my new lounge socks...

  My present to me! I stopped off at Bath and Body to buy a birthday present tonight and couldn't resist these fun and cozy pink and orange socks. 

...and then for the first time I am linking to Beverly's Pink Saturday. I've wanted to be part of the pink Saturday fun for ages and finally, I've got a pink post for Saturday. 

Have a pretty in pink Saturday and enjoy!

I love warm, colourful socks...my family got me four pair for Christmas this year, bless them!

Sleep sweet and return well-rested.

I bought a couple pairs of those socks for Christmas gifts this past year. They are soft and cuddly for sure! Maybe I should have gotten myself a pair. Hope you have a warm and relaxing weekend.

What great (fun) colors ...they remind me of Chicklets!
Sorry to hear how miserable you felt at that bus-stop! As much as I love the cold, there's nothing worse than feeling the wind on your face and neck.
Hope your evening was cozy and you're feeling much better today!

Cute and cozy socks. That should help you fight the winter blues. I'm not a winter-lover either.

Great looking socks! I'll think of you when I wear my own toasty socks!

A cuppa tea and cozy socks. A great way to pamper yourself after a cold, busy week.

Bath & Body is fun but my favorite is Bed, Bath, & Beyond!!! I love organizational stuff so my next favorite is an office supply store.
