My new love !!!!


Oh those beautiful brown tones and that soft fuzzy fur !!!! It has been BITTER cold here the last few days , with temps below zero and wind chills so cold they will snap your face off in 30 seconds. (currently the actual tempurature is -17 with a windchill of -50). We live on the third floor of a large apartment building , and normally our place is so warm you can live in shorts all year. But every once in a while the wind comes directly from the east and it feels very cold. With this cold snap plus all the snow on the ground radiating cold, it is freezing in here. Heat is on, it is just simply too much with the wind and the snow. We lived in a drafty old Victorian house for 20 years and every winter we lived there we froze. You had to learn a lot of old timy survivval skills in that place- and I miss it !

After putting blankets on the window , I went and bought a new microfleece blanket for the bed, and I got the first good nights sleep I have had in weeks . Yay warm !!! The temps are going to warm up today, but more snow will come with that warmth. It is a character building winter for sure !!

I lived in an old Victorian too... I know what you're talking about. We use to over the windows in plastic in the winter. We lived there 20 years too. Now I live in an old Queen Anne Mansion broken up into 5 apartments... it's cold but not too bad, all of my downstairs neighbors heat come up to my place so it keeps up toasty when it's cold... right now we're having spring weather... warm and sunny. Yesterday I seen a girl in shorts!

Stopping by to fellow A Teamers to show support...I'm struggling right now but I'm hoping reading the A-Team blogs will help me out. Hope you're kicking a$$ and taking names!
