Brrrrr...Double Brrrrr...

Oh my it is cold...getting the mail has been quite a challenge! Den has been in Minnesota and Iowa all week in -20 degree weather. He has been at the state Iowa...doing the things you do at the state and talking to representatives...and eating steak!

Lol...the girls and I are trying to stay warm. We are eating cereal and toast and soup and apples and a really good hard goat cheese. We are also sipping a yummy minty tea. I say we because Roxie dunked her entire head in my tea cup yesterday...

It's sort of a free for all here when Den is gone...when he is here...the girls sleep all night long in their own cozy heated beds...when Den is gone...they seem to jump on me all night long...probably because I fall asleep with all the lights on and the TV's as though they are trying to wake me up to tell me to go to sleep properly!

This morning I woke up to both of them staring at over my head and one in front of me...Roxie was kissing my face! Doesn't it look like they are in an important discussion here? Roxie is totally trying to make her point very clear! Lucy remains unconvinced!

Finished Ophelia...loved this had no faults! I think it might be a would make the most wonderful movie.

Just starting this...

Den is starting his flight home...Minnesota is one of the most difficult places to get to...when he is there he has hours of driving...flight changes...and exhaustion...but at least there is great steak!

Happy Thursday!


  1. I can only imagine how cold it is there because it's really cold here. It was 21 when I walked this morning and that just doesn't happen here very often. Stay warm!

  2. The Ophelia one looks especially good to me! Gonna go check it out!

  3. I have the cold. I'm just happy my car started this morning, yesterday it didn't want to. It doesn't like the cold any more than I do.

  4. This has been one of the worst winters in many years, with record setting temps. I am so tired of it all, since it started early, too. It snows every couple of days!

  5. When I was newly single (and not with just someone out of town), I had lights on and the stereo playing all night (that's when we had stereos for music). Back then, I didn't have a TV in my bedroom.

  6. Minnesota can be chilly and it sounds like now is one of those times! I know my aunts and uncles are saying they are freezing out there in MN. :) Sounds like you girls are doing a good job having fun. Can't wait to read Ophelia.

  7. Of all times to go to Minnesota...Ugh! I fall asleep with all lights and TVs blazing too. I hate that! Lol!! Birds of a
