I have not blogged in a while, I noticed.
It is really freaking cold outside and I do not like the cold. It means that at night I'm bundled up and can't move my arms away from my sides to do anything creative really.
When I get into a car I have to scream, until I'm warmer. Some people do not enjoy that so much. My children are not really big fans. Of the cold scream.
I don't like the feeling of instantly freezing mucous membranes upon leaving the house. Or how the floor under my sock clad feet feels like it actually has a layer of ice on it. Or how, when I open the shower door in the morning, I feel like I need a hat and mittens before I get in.
I wonder often, in January, why do I still live in Wisconsin? But I know why. Because in March or April or May (probably several times of all three months) it will get beautiful outside and people will seem hysterically happy. I like that. I like it a lot. It's enough to stay here. You can't have an up without a down.
But I will say, that on Monday, I stayed home and we had twelve hours of original Nintendo, homemade lentil soup, homemade chocolate cake, my favorite combination snack: bacon, pears and cheese, and several different crafty type projects to do and friends over. And a space heater on all day. That was a pretty nice way to spend a freakishly wintery winter day.
And I shouldn't complain. It's up to 17 degrees right now! It's practically a heat wave.
Stay warm out there, readers!
