Yep, Its Hibernating Time

   I don't go out unless I HAVE to. Except to work, that is. But, after spending 4 hours a day delivering mail in the cold stuff, its no wonder. I don't have a plug in on my truck either, so I go out before bedtime and start her up. Brrrr!
    At least I had the good sense to put together some chili last night. This morning I put it in the crockpot and let it simmer all day while I was at work. The house smells so warm and yummy! I have to run to the store though. I ran out of milk and I need to make some cornbread. While I'm there I'll pick up some hotdogs and buns for chili-dogs tomorrow!
   Next weekend is the start of the Winter Carnival. I'm excited to see the new ice and snow sculptures. Of course, I'll take in the orchid show too. It IS my favorite event. This weekend they change the Conservatory over from the Holiday flower display , to the Winter flower display.
   Hopefully the weather will be a little more seasonable then. I would like to see the fireworks show after the Torchlight parade without freezing my tookus off! Wish I could bring you all with me. I be sipping on the hot chocolate for ya! ; )   Stay warm!


  1. I don't know how you stand the cold. I about froze cleaning the car off and going to the store this morning. The Winter Carnival sounds like fun.
