Is it STILL cold outside?

I am a warm weather person....if the temperature drops below, say..............70, I wonder what the problem is with Mother Nature. Something about my internal thermometer says,"whoa..let's crank the heat up."
So needless to say, a wind chill of - 1, -10, or minus whatever, does not sit well with me. This is about the time that I start accepting that maybe Indian Summer is over ;o) It is also the time that I focus on things like getting rid of STUFF, sewing a little more,
and staring at my small indoor garden. I suspect that the plants are getting nervous. No doubt they are saying to each other, "Watch out, she is thinking of taking cuttings to root!"
Don't get me wrong, I love the peace and quiet of Winter. I can NEVER have enough peace and quiet, especially with a crazy scottie in the house. When scotties can't run outside, they run inside........and run....and run...until they drop. Even at almost 11, Angus thinks he is still a puppy!

Wishing you a warm cozy winter day!


  1. I love your sweet pictures, and esp. the pic with your Scottie! Thanks for stopping by our blog. Hope your day is lovely.
    Warmly, Debbie

  2. Gorgeous flowers! Oh, and there is that sweet photo of Gussy dog. He ran himself out, didn't he? I love the way scotties play, even if they are just entertaining themself.
