It's cold here this morning and the local weather is saying it's 0...that's ZERO degrees. Does that mean that there is no temperature? Well anyway, it's cold here and all the water outside is frozen. The little kitties outside were happy to see Jimmy coming out with fresh running water and ran up to him to get a drink before it freezes back up again.
We're really pleased with our gas logs and I don't think the fire has been out since yesterday. It has run constantly and feels nice in here. I never thought there could be a real fire in a fireplace that didn't involve cutting wood. My husband & I spent years cutting and hauling wood to heat our home with and here we are with a real fire burning in a fake fireplace. It's nice.
The kids are all off school today not because of snow, but because of the cold temps I guess. Yesterday Brandon's school bus got stuck in the snow. (insert laughter here) Yesterday we woke up to a dusting of snow partly (I emphasize partly), covering the grassy areas. It was more like a very heavy frost so school was not called off for Brandon, but it was called off in our county. Brandon's school was called off today because the bus got stuck yesterday and because they haven't had any snow days this year and everyone also wanted to make this a long four day weekend. All of you who teach or work at a school probably know the real reason school was called off today; I can only make an educated guess.
Anyway....it's a good day for hot cocoa, relaxing by the fire with five cats on your lap, and watching good movies or reading a book.
