I needz a cozy!

It's freezing here! Brrrr. As I sit typing this, my nose is cold. My knees are cold--and I'm wearing long pants. I have a small afghan across my lap. I live in Baltimore and it's not supposed to be cold!

Now, I'm sure that there are places that are colder. Truly. But it's all a matter of what you're used to. If the normal temps are in the forties and then suddenly the temp drops to the twenties, then that's cold. Add in a brisk wind and you have the makings for an uncomfortable day or night. If on top of that you're like me with a patio door that leaks like a sieve, then there you are. Cold.

It's enough to make you thankful for a place to live, though. Very thankful.



  1. OMG, such a cute pic, Anny.

    Can't wait for spring!!!

  2. Get a snuggie. Silly thing really is comfy and warm.

  3. I use those fingerless spandex gloves you can get at the craft store (for quilters). They really keep my hands warm (we talked about this once before, didn't we?) And I have a baby blanket for my legs -- those things are exactly the right size and so warm! My office is like yours: in the basement, facing north, with French doors leading to the outside. There are days when it feels like I've got the North Pole outside my window instead of just a typical Minnesota winter.

    The worst is over. Spring is around the corner. I'm sure it is. Keep repeating that until you believe it.

  4. and your point is???
    It's winter! It's supposed to be colder than usual. The weather is changing all over and very unpredictable.

  5. Cold toes. Check. Cold fingers. Check. Cold ears. Check Check.

    Either air conditioner is on too high or have need of spring.

  6. right - you blooger comment box seems to hate me....or maybe it's pissed that I don't do comments and it is retaliating...I did say I liked anon's comment and that I found winter in Briz to be pukeable
