Bitter Cold

I hate being cold. I'm glad that Andrew is excited about the sleet in his area, but I hate this kind of weather. It is a windy, bitter, biting cold that chills your bones. I drove home in some blowing snow, but the wind was so fast that nothing could really accumulate. When I leave in the mornings, I turn down the heat in the house so I have to wait for it to get warm when I get home. I was desperate tonight so I got an extra space heater from the garage and put it in the living room. I made some lemon butter chicken tonight with some rice-a-roni. I didn't bring any homework home so I'm going to take it easy and perhaps get under the warm covers early. I turned on the heater in my room so it should be nice and toasty by the time I go to bed.

Things are getting better at school but I am still overwhelmed with tournament stuff. The judges aren't coming in like they should be, but it's always a last minute crunch. I have been pleased with the online form on our website. I haven't been staying after school when I should be. I wasn't sure about the weather today so I just headed home early. I had to go by the store to get some shampoo and conditioner. I guess I should check and see what the weather is going to do. I don't care what it does this weekend as long as it is clear next weekend.

Last night I reread one of my favorite books, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. It's a short book of 180 pages so I was able to read it in two hours. I think I'll spend some time under the covers this evening doing some more reading. There are just some books I could read over and over. I think I'll reread To Kill a Mockingbird. It's been a few years since I've read it. Well, I'm going to try to warm up and take it easy tonight.

Hey friend. Try to stay warm. There is an arctic blast on the way. May have already reached you. I worry about the amount of responsibility thrust upon you by your job. I must seem daunting some days. You always persevere though. I am thinking of you and wish you well. Stay warm!

Have you ever read A Tree Grows In Brooklyn? It's a great one to read over and over. I never read it in school, I discivered it as an adult and it is a classic!

It is 6 AM EST here. I just looked on the National Weather Service page and it is 12 degrees in Amarillo! No wonder you are cold! That is bitter! Stay warm today and good luck with work. As always, I will be thinking of you dear friend.

I'm hoping that you are warm this morning. We have snow headed our way today. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and words over at my place. I really appreciate.

if I was in Tx I'd be one of your judges! Sorry it's stressing you. I'm sure it'll be fine.
