OK, this is ridiculous...you notice the"real feel" temp is -46. I guess that is the new "wind-chill"
I let my kids out this morning about 6:30 AM and in less than 2 minutes they were both back in the house...Cinder limped up the sidewalk, shivering. I immediately wiped her off and cuddled her under a warm blanket and she remained in that position until just about 11:30, when she jumped down for about a minute and then decided, never mind and jumped back up into those warm covers.
Toby loves being outside and he just can't understand why I won't let him go out....he just looks at me with that forlorn look and says....please, please. Then when I do let him out, he comes hobbling back within 5 minutes. He almost didn't make it up the sidewalk the last time he went out. Poor things, they don't understand what this nasty weather is all about. It's supposed to warm up to -12 by 9:00 PM tonight. Oh my, I do hope everyone is safe and warm wherever they are. And thanks for all the concerns about my two granddaughters....Bailey did spend the night with me last night and Brie's drive back to Iowa State was safe and uneventful. Sometimes that word "uneventful" is so positive. I love it when someone says..."how was your flight" and I reply, "uneventful"...in other-words, no problems.
Ok, since you won't let me play outside, will you play with me inside???
While Cinder stays wrapped in her blanket.
Well, did ya, did ya....watch Downton Abbey last night?? Thank God Mary came out of her gloominess before the show's end, what a drag she was. And O'brien left....wow didn't see that coming. And wasn't that a sweet ending when Mr. Carson finally went to see his ole' theater pal and extended a friendly hand. And I must say, Lady Edith sure is coming into her own with her new make-up and wardrobe. That green evening dress was quite stunning. OK, sure hope I haven't spoiled it for anyone, it is pure pleasure to watch.
OK, my 50mm class begins today, our assignment is to get used to the lens, wander around our house and backyard (ha is she kidding??) and snap using different exposures, aperatures etc. OK, so the Toby pics were 50mm and here are a couple more and yes, they are all inside.
and yes, the Christmas decorations are STILL up...I know, I'm tired of them too.
And one more thing....today is the anniversary of the day that Peanuts was introduced to us by Charles Schultz back in 1952. It was the longest running comic strip with 17,897 strips in total and is considered one of the most influential and popular comic strips ever written. Love you "Peanuts"!

And PS....just checked the weather again and it warmed up to -13...what the heck??!!
Until next time....
