Coldsnap

We've had another wave of cold weather hit much of Texas, including us. Although no snow this time around, it has been pretty chilly - in the low 20s today!

I really do love this weather (as long as I'm at home safe and sound with my family in cozy warm clothes).

I had to run an errand during my lunch break today (I was hoping we'd be let out of work early since all the elementary, middle, and high schools had an early dismissal due to the icey road conditions but the higher ed folks weren't as lucky) and found my windshield and the rest of my car was a encased in ice.
Or should I say, iceshield...

Lucky for me when I came back to Texas 5 years ago, my dad equipped me with an ice scraper that comes in very useful multiple times a year. Thanks, Dad! :-)

We got home to find our entire front porch covered in ice...so I slowly scuffled around in heels. Surprisingly, this klutz made it to the front door with not even a slip!

Besides all the hassles that winter weather causes (which are typically minimal here), after eating dinner, feeding Buggie her butternut squash, giving her a bath and her last bottle, winter days like this are the ones I love the most. Nothing beats a full tummy and a cozy sweatshirt to keep you warm all night long.
