Baby It's Cold Outside


This cute guy at the Christmas tree stand on the next block captured my heart the first time I saw him, and today he captured my thoughts. It's no secret, I am not a fan of winter. I like looking at snow once, and then I'm done with it. I don't especially enjoy dressing in lots of layers and I don't like being cold. Alas, it's just the middle of December and I'm tired of the winter already, and it hasn't officially begun. I will make every effort to refrain from complaining about the weather for the next few months, but I can't guarantee there won't be a time or two (or three) when I'm emoting about my least favorite season.

I'm happy to announce that the winner of the "Pelican Point" giveaway is Tina at Bringing along OCD.  I enjoy reading Tina's blog and it's been fun getting to know her. Her photographs are a delight. Tina, I'll be in touch to get your mailing information.

Even though it's early I'm home for the night. My plan is to write cards and order my last gift and then I'm going to light a holiday candle and enjoy a cup of tea and a book. Hope your evening is equally warm and cozy. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.

Buttercup, I am just like you. Don't like the bitter cold and really hate snow , fog, ice, and all the other nasty things. I have counted the days till Spring and it isn't even officially Winter yet. I am doomed !!!(in my best Charlie Brown voice) Stay warm...it is nice to sit at home once in a while and enjoy some hot tea or coffee. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Cute…. It's been cold in Tennessee also--but finally warmed up a little this afternoon. Finally, melted a bunch of our ice.

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy

Yes it's been in the teens here but today we got a reprieve of the 50's. I tried to get out and finish all my shopping in the nice weather. I love the snowman, what a cute fella.

Thanks so much, Carol! I'll look forward to something new to read.

It's cold here, too. I am one of those people who actually likes winter, though. There are a few of us out there. :-) I'm going to do a bit of work and then settle down with a cup of tea also. One of the pleasures of winter!

I imagine that there are people who like winter but that is because they ski or get off from school. I don't ski and my school days are long behind me, so, like you, I would like to skip this season altogether.

Congratulations to Tina!

I hear that there is another possible threat of more winter weather coming your way! And - we're not even at the official beginning of winter!

I'm with you. Not a big fan of snow and cold either. We got 7-1/2 inches of snow on Sat and another 2-3 today.

The snowman is to cute! I have a feeling we are in for a snowy and cold Winter. I am afraid things are just getting started. Enjoy your evening and stay warm. Christmas Blessings!

Congrats Tina!

Carol I have to agree with you on the cold weather; it's horrid!

I've been so distracted and busy lately I haven't really noticed or minded the cold weather... but it has been rather frigid for December. Hang in there! :)

I hate winter too and make no promises not to grouse about it. I've already had to use my snow blower three times and must do so again today before I leave the house. Yuck!

I'm all for staying in and keeping warm and cozy this time of year. I'm with you on that one for sure. We have more snow here and more coming.

Our temperatures are in the high 50's to 60's this week! It is another unusual weather pattern in Colorado that we are experiencing. I've been getting out as much as possible as I know it won't last :) Hope it warms up there again soon to more normal NYC weather, Carol.
