My toes have been cold since yesterday morning. Something is awry with my temperature regulations. I'm pretty sure it's glandular.

At one point I waved Maggie over to lay on my feet to keep them warm. She obliged by purring and pawing and then snoring. Sometimes you have to suffer for warmth.

This morning I opened my Inbox and read an email from my sweet friend back in The Sunshine State offering her sympathy to me for the freezing temps and then mentioning that it was unusually warm at her house.

I can picture her riding down the highway with her sunroof open, wind in her hair and beads of sweat beginning to form on her brow.

Thanks for the mental image, dear friend. I warmed up half a degree imagining your toasty environment, complete with All You Can Eat Shrimp.


At least she's keepin' it real.

This morning it is much nicer here. No snow. No ice. No harsh winds. It's quite balmy at 23 degrees.

I'm getting my hair done later today. Cut and color. The works. A new hairdo always lifts my spirits and the cape is an extra layer of clothing.

Do you think my stylist would let Maggie come along?

Zoe wants on our lap. So that SHE can be warm. Good luck with the new hair! It's always fun.

First time visiting your blog. It's delightful! Love the idea of extra warmth from a salon cape. lol Sounds good to me from up here where it's -10.

Hey, I'll take some of the cold here. I want some snow! I'm wearing short sleeves!! The high was 58 today. Can't a girl just get one day of snow???

For some reason both of our girl dogs have this thing for sitting on one of my husband's feet, and only when he's eating. It's become a topic of discussion around here (since we're so interesting, we have lots to talk about) - he always says he wouldn't know he was eating dinner unless one of his feet was sweating profusely. Weird animals.
