I'm not complaining.

Really, I'm not. It is just going to take some getting used to.

The Cold! (And it isn't really that cold yet!)

Things that bother me so far...

1. Cold nose. I hate having a cold nose.

2. Leather furniture is very cold in the morning.

3. When you walk to the football concession stand and buy some crazy delicious concession stand nachos? By the time you get back to the bleachers, your cheese is cold. (I ate them anyway.)

4. I can't wear a stocking cap for any length of time. I put one on and about ten minutes later, I yank it off and start scratching my head like I have cooties. I've tried stocking caps, wool caps, caps with fleece lining, etc. I guess it is the tightness around my head. I don't itch on the top of my head, just around the sides and my forehead. I can wear a sweatshirt hood and have no problem, but a cap, no go. Any suggestions my peeps from the land of the coldness?


A couple of photos of our trip to the patch...


If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It's a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it's time to reflect on what's come before. - Mitchell Burgess, Northern Exposure, Thanksgiving, 1992


  1. The pumpkin measuring stick is cute.

    Oh yeah, also..... Wuss!
    It can't be that cold yet. We already had snow and sleet last Sunday here in Minnesnowta. Although it might get up to 65F today, and I might just have to find a way to sneak in a small ride on the motorcycle, if even for only a half hour or so.

  2. A certain troublemaker is totally oblivious to cold because that troublemaker has more coats than several women put together.
