brrr, baby

So, the Polar Vortex
has come to town!
Polar Vortex...
sounds like a good movie, doesn't it?
Well, it is not.
Not by a long shot!

The weatherman just described central Ohio as 'artic tundra'
and I guess it probably does compare...
as the high yesterday was -8 degrees Fahrenheit.
With the wind chill it was minus 40 to 50 for most of the daylight hours.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Below Zero.

Here's the nice thermal long-john shirt
that I got for Christmas:
This is what I'm wearing today.
With my silk long johns underneath it.
That pretty much explains it, I think.

I sure am thankful for
a home, & heat & running water & warm cozy fires.
I'm thankful for a slow-cooker filled with chili
and a cast-iron skillet of cornbread.
I'm thankful for my pink thermal long-john shirt.
I'm also thankful for a good mug of hot cocoa:
(: My homemade hot cocoa
with whipping cream and shaved, dark chocolate.
Oh, and my supply of Airbourne in the back :)
Hope you are all cozy and warm if you are also experiencing this cold snap.


  1. yes,please, I'll have a mug of your beautiful cocoa! and glad you have layers for the weather you are expecting. t in tx

  2. This uncommon subfreezing weather is hopefully behind us!

  3. ahhh hot chocolate. My favorite go to, I almost went outside in a swimsuit to make a crazy insane post. In the end it was decided that I would scar everyone for life. ;O


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
