Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, It’s Cold

November 23, 2008 7:00 am

This shot was from a trip Jamie and I took to CT a few winters ago way before children were in the picture. I grew up in FL so when I woke up to a snow-covered morning, I was so excited that we just had to go sledding. And so we did. Jamie (the PA boy) was a pro and he beat me to the bottom of the hill. It was fun but we were back inside trying to get warm in under ten minutes. Like I said, I’m from FL.

This week has been chilly here. Tonight it’s supposed to dip down into the mid forties, brrr! Ok, it’s a stretch but for me, that’s cold. I hope that once the kids are a bit older, we can make that CT trip again and have some snowy fun. Maybe even build a snowman!

Not a lot to write today, the kids have been sick all week and were feeling just better enough to head to the grandparents for a sleepover last night (Saturday). Jamie and I celebrated by getting all dolled up (showering) and going out for a nice dinner. We were home and drowsy by 9:00, thus signifying that we are in fact old.

    There are quite a few of us here in FL we need to have our own blogher get together sometime. Wouldn’t that be fun? We could meet at Busch Gardens, Disney or something. Ach well something to ponder right?

    Love the snow pic. We used to sled down hills in England. However, I remember going to Flagstaff and seeing snow again for the the first time in ages. I forgot snow covers things and went running out to start a snowball fight and landed on my arse because I tripped over a bolder. Just my

    Ahhh, that photo is beautiful! It brings back memories to about 5 weeks ago when Utah was dumped on. I, for one, can’t wait to get some more of the white stuff. I am a tubin’, skiin’, boardin’, shoein’, snowmobilin’ freak!

    Um, I wish my visit was under better circumstances, but I’m afraid it’s not. You just totally boxed me out of the number one spot at Tattooed Mom’s place. What gives, girlie? Shouldn’t you be vaccumming? Shouldn’t I be learning how to properly spell vaccuum? I’ve been following you around the blogosphere all day. Can you feel my hot breath? If I get any closer I’m going to give you a “flat tire” on your shoes. Yeah.

    I walked about a mile back from the ambulance building to my house last night after we took a gentleman to another hospital for a cardiac eval. It was 27 out, and snowing. I had 3/4 length sweats, a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, gloves and a hat on, no coat. I wasn’t cold. I think the insanity of this place is starting to sink in.

    Never seen snow personally. It’s very sad, I know. But really anything below 50 is too cold for me, I’m a wuss. Glad the kids are improving. Why does bed by 9 sound suh-weet? We went to see Walking with Dinosaurs live yesterday, and those crowded arena seats had my knees screaming by the end of the show. Getting old blows.

    That sounds like us. No kids and we still pass out early. Sad really. Actually pathetic. I’m so glad I’m not alone!

    To see snow around here requires a TV and a a DVD. It looks very seasonal and festive to me, but of course, I’m in a bathing suit, washing my windows right now!

  16. Michele

    I’m with Beth though I don’t wash my windows. Too much work. Very lazy here. We head to Flagstaff for snow.

    JR & I spent the weekend in Palm Springs, CA. We were still in bed by 9pm. Don’t feel too old.

    That’s a beautiful picture. I live in Orange County, CA and I turn the heater on if it gets below 72. I think PICTURES of snow are really pretty though!

    Great picture! It is cold here as well. TN I know gets colder temps than FL but even for us this time of year it is cold.
