I mean, short of a hurricane, why bother?
I know the rest of the country thinks we are cold weather wimps.
It doesn't take much to freeze us.
31 degrees with a windchill in the 20's does the trick!
I am well aware that the unrelenting hot and humid
months are right around the corner so I will not complain.
I grew up in Michigan. I know cold weather.
We just don't have the right clothes.
Flip flops do not work in 30 degree weather.
Oh my gosh...
I forgot how great a warm shower is on a cold morning...
and feeling like you are shaving off goose bumps!!!
And sleeping in layers under a down comforter...
complete with socks and gloves.
The good news...
lots of comfort food.
Beef stew, chili, hot chicken sandwiches w/ mashed potatoes & gravy...
I know...what's the big deal???
See for yourself...
I bet it took all of the "snow" in the yard to make one snowball...
or this mini snowman.
But we don't miss the chance to try!
Yes...this is a palm tree...with snow!
These photos do not bode well for prices of strawberries and O.J this year...
Possibly the best gift we got this Christmas:-)
No...It is NOT flip-flop weather!
If you're lucky enough to have a bit of ice on your windshield in Florida,
you just HAVE to write in it and take a picture!!!:-)
Okay people, it's 20 degrees in Jacksonvile...DO NOT GO TO THE BEACH!
Even my boys have to stay warm.
Maui loves wearing his Florida sweatshirt
(for Jordie) and his Bama sweatshirt (for Taylor)
and Freddy...he stays cuddled up in a blanket with his toys.
Well, I'm off for a walk with the boys
around the neighborhood in my 31 degree weather.
But it is sunny...
and I hear it might get to 76 later this week.
Don't hate me!!!:-)
