Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

It is freaking cold here!  It went down into the low teens or below last night.  It was all of 20 degrees when I got up around 8 this morning.  Cleo usually wants out first thing but when I opened the door she changed her mind.....quickly.  So glad I found my LLBean flannel lined jeans so I can bundle up.  My heat pump is madly pumping away and I can just picture the meter spinning at great speeds and the electric bill climbing into the stratosphere.  I have to go to run errands so it's leg warmers, turtle neck, sweatshirt, flannel shirt, long johns today.  It's supposed to get up to a whopping 34 today and down to 18 tonight.  I can see ice forming on the pond which, by the way, I will avoid dealing with as long as possible while it's this cold.  Perhaps there's a silver lining to it being this cold, though.  Fewer people out and about so I might be able to get my errands done quickly.
Y'all stay warm today and remember:  cold is a four-letter word.  Hmmm, but then again so is warm.

I don't envy you having to get into that cold water in the pond to clear out the drain, but some things still need to get done, cold or not.

Maybe you can finish up the errands and get back home to some hot tea without too much delay!

Stay warm, my friend!

Thanks, HJ. Don't plan on staying outside.
