The temperature today started with a "5"

And ended with a 9. Here in the Valley of the Sun, we call that cold.

I like cold.

I unearthed my brown pea coat that sat woefully at the bottom of the Winter Box. (And happy is what I was when I could button it.)

I did not forget my hat. Because My Man really likes it when I wear hats. And I really like it when he likes it when I wear hats.

Then I went out to buy more milk chocolate chips. When I got back, I pranced around the kitchen and made Grandma Day fudge. Because one can only read DeNae's Ode to Fudge month so much without spontaneous fudge-making. I'm only human.

I was trying to get My Man to regret the fact that he had to read 300 pages on "Deferring Loss or Gain upon Incorporation." That means taxes and stuff.

I think I succeeded. He regrets it. Especially when I licked the spoon suggestively.

I'm a toiling wife.

you are delightful.

Of course, your little 5 and 9 temperature is pathetic compared to my 8.

Yep, that's it. Just an 8.

8 degrees.

And covered in snow.

YEAH, BABY!

Oh dear, I really am going to miss having a Mesa Christmas this year. I like the idea of the spoon licking, but then I'd have to make something.... oh I am SO conflicted!

Yeah, started with a minus, ended with a one. I'm so living in the wrong place.

Deborah said...

No way would my husband have made it through the spoon licking. Heh heh heh...

Kimberly said...

I have the same coat in red. Must go hat shopping now...

You are deliciously evil, you know that?

Jocelyn Christensen said...

I love the hat... but when it's 59 here, we throw our coats out the window, roll down our windows and shout for joy. Enjoy your cold weather!

As a woman who spent the last two days under blizzard warning and had to dress my children for FORTY-FIVE minutes to leave the house because wind chill temps are 25 BELOW zero, I hate you.
But it's not so much hate as it is jealousy, and wishing I had a cool hat so I don't look like a homeless person.
And my husband reads LOTS of books like that (on desk now: White Collar Crime Law and Practice) and regrets it daily, so luckily I don't have to do much spoon licking to rub it in. Countdown to graduation is on. . . .

I wish I could be a hat person. I just look ridiculous.

I covet your 5 and 9 other than I have lots of lovely snow (it is only lovely when it is fresh and I don't have to travel in it). I wouldn't be wearing a coat if I had a 5 and 9- we woke to a MINUS and a 4- our high today might reach all the way up to 10-

Ummmmm Ya - Our temp up in Flag this mornin- 1. There was no other number - just the poor lonely 1!
Meanwhile your coat and hat are soooo cute! I always want to wear hats but I don't think I have the face for it! I love your hat though! Soooo cute!

You always make me smile. I just wanted to make you aware of that. . .

DeNae said...

Hooray! The Salute to Fudge saves another marriage!!

And you are one hot tamale in that cute hat. (Have you read Go Dog, Go? I love the part where the lady dog asks the man dog, "Do you like this hat?" and he keeps saying "No. I do not like that hat." Until she finally puts on this monstrosity and he says, "Yes! Yes! I like that hat! I like that party hat!" Every time I put on a hat, I say that. That's right. I am THAT clever.)

Love the hat (and the earrings)! I think my head is too big for hats. I am a great hat appreciator, though.

Harmony said...

I won't even comment on the weather in Utah. Though, I just did. Happy hat-wearing!

Kazzy said...

We opened the day yesterday with a - followed by a 2. Yipes!

You and your house are both so stinkin' cute! I love pea coats too!
