Bracing for the Deep Freeze

  1. Thank you for this! I laughed so much at the photo of you under all those layers, it was just what I needed after a super long boring Sunday at home by the fire binge watching series on netflix.
    As for your actual post, having grown up in the tropics I simply can’t understand why the human race migrated so far north into inhospitable places where deep freezes are a thing.

    1. Yes. Sometimes I wonder what the heck I’m still doing here. Glad you enjoyed the picture. I’ll admit to trying a little harder to make my outerwear pieces match when I’m not just dressing up for a blog post picture. By the way, your super long boring Sunday plans sound perfect.

    1. Thank you! I did and not only that: schools in this area are cancelling both Tuesday and Wednesday, and are keeping an eye on Thursday. I probably shouldn’t sound so gleeful. These temps are bad news for lots of people (and animals – the poor animals!). But if these insane temps are going to occur, I’m happy to not have to go out in it.

  2. I once went to a comedy show in the Great White North where the comedian told of Native Americans who were wandering, and eventually said, “Ka U Ka U Na (Kaukauna), which means, “F*** it we’re lost; let’s just live here.” BTW, your summery flowers are lovely! However, I’m adopting a phrase one of our cousins recently posted on Facebook: No kids, no pets, no plants. Brilliant!

    1. Ha ha! I actually grew up not that far from Kaukauna. Thanks for the compliment about my flowers. Yes, I love gardening. I’m a black thumb with houseplants, but do pretty well with annuals and perennials outside. Oh! You must be one of Brian’s Facebook friends? That phrase definitely fits him. He’s featured in a post I did about sports fandom, and I think I mentioned that quote there, as well. He’s got quite the lifestyle.

  3. Your colorful photos are a delight as is your take on life. I tend to think that you’re right about bloggers hitting rock bottom when we write about the weather. Yet, being the rebel that I am, I occasionally go that route on my personal blog. Like today when I could dress in gazillion layers and go outside… but I won’t.

    Thanks for stopping by to comment. I love meeting new-to-me bloggers with a sense of humor. 😉
