The kettle is getting a workout this morning. Winter has had the audacity to send her cousin Frigid Temperatures to Oklahoma. Thank the gods for tea! Otherwise this could get ugly!
Yesterday was cold and overnight the temps took a nosedive into the low teens. Yes, I understand what the North is going through and I don’t care. You chose to live there. But this is our first day off in a long time and I wanted to do something out-of-doors. Nope. It’s tea and a book with some fuzzy socks thrown in.
Yesterday I made a huge batch of stew so we have soups and stews to warm our insides but I don’t care if the house is on fire I’m not going out until it’s at least 50 again. I’m calling it Hibernation. I am positive it will warm up in a snap. (keep repeating). Much like a bear, I have stocked up on food, found a comfy and warm spot, and in a few months I’ll pop out well rested and ready to roll. Of course I’ll pop out for Mardi Gras. Although this year Mardi Gras is on Tuesday and Ash Wednesday is the next day, the beginning of Lent for us Catholics. So you better pig out on that Valentine candy quick before the season of fasting begins!
Enough rambling for today. I need more tea!
