Baby, it is cold outside !

This morning started out at 17 degrees and ice everywhere, two hours later it was 13 degrees !! Wrong direction folks the temp. is supposed to rise as the day goes on and on. Not so in, "Hillbilly Heaven."Why am I here anyway ??? I keep asking myself this question a lot now days.

We used to live in Phx. Az. where it was summer all of the time. I do like seasons, four in fact but, lets not get carried away with this stuff. It finally got up to 19 for our days high.. Bring out your shorts guys and gals we will have a picnic outside .

I have baked and done laundry, anything to put more heat in here and it has helped some. Now I am thinking about just going to bed and pulling the covers up over my head.

Beside cooking and washing clothes, I have blogged and played games all day. What better to do when Baby, it is cold outside.

Actually you can send some of that our way. Our high today was 61. Disgraceful for December, in my opinion. Our forecast for the rest of the week is rain and 50s ( not any better). How are we supposed to get into the holiday spirit?? It's beginning to look a lot like "April"??...

Ha! I saw the dip in the jetstream and wondered if you were shoveling snow or not. It's supposed to be in the 70's here in GA by the end of the week.

I'll admit I like for there to be a little chill in the for Christmas, but 17 for a high is extreme for my southern blood. Stay warm!!

Hi Leslie,

Came over from Liz's Mad Bush Farm Crew, when I read your comment. Hey, well, I'm in Southern MO, right on the Arkansas line. We're having the same weather as you. Freezing rain and sleet all day. Ugh! Yesterday, Sunday, it was 60 degrees. It's only been one day, but I'm already having cabin fever.

Anyway, I did want to say Hi, and I have enjoyed my visit. We're practically neighbors! Come and visit, and I will be back. Is it okay if I follow your blog? I hope so.

Take care and stay warm. I aim to do the same!

Leslie I was just reading Renie's comment. That is so cool you and Renie can see each other somewhere along the line. Renie is such a wonderful person and a great writer to boot. Well you now have another follower. How could I not when you are so lovely and fun. Stay warm there Leslie. I'm thinking of all of you there with the winter snow.

Great big hug

PS I see lots of images of greyhounds on the other Avatars. I love Greyhounds great dogs.
