They say it will get down to -30 tonight with the wind chill. I know that I came close to frostbite on my fingers and toes today, even in boots and gloves. So, let’s look at this picture, shall we, and know that places like this actually exist.

MKL and I have both about had it with cold weather. We are starting to discuss more temperate options for our future together. It’s so lovely to have a true partner to plan with. Tonight, I comfort myself with polar bear pajamas, Mr. Man, and re-watching Season One of Downton Abbey. Oh, and packing swimsuits, but I don’t want to rub that part in.

Quote of the Day: “Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.”  — Oscar Wilde

Daily gratitudes:
Anything warm
Green chile soup
Discussions of religion with Kelsea
A tot of rum on a cold night
The man at O’Reilly Auto Parts who fixed my windshield wiper for free
The pretty girl who left a warm scent of vanilla behind in the elevator
