So it's a balmy 21 degrees this morning. Factoring in the wind chill, and it feels like 15. Nice! But just like always we'll have snow now and have a green Christmas. Whatever! Last night I went to bed in sweatpants, a sweatshirt and socks. Anyone who knows me should be shocked. But I was SO cold last night. And it was a bone chill kinda cold. No matter what I did, I couldn't get warm. And I'm arguing with Austin that he needs to keep his hood up this morning when he's at the bus stop. Evidently, a hood might mess up his hair. Ah youth! Remember when you cared about things like that? When it comes to winter weather, I couldn't care less about fashion. All I care about is staying warm.
I received a Nice Matters Award from Linda at Somewhere in Time. What a prolific award. It's contagious, you know. I can't thank Linda enough for giving me this. This is one epidemic that we'd all welcome. And really, there isn't a mean one of ya in the bunch. But, it is my honor to pass this award on to Karla at Karla's Cottage, Kari at Just Livin Large, and Heidi at Celebrate the Seasons. Each one of these women touch my heart.
And I wanted to leave you with a video. This is from one of my favorite movies: Meet Me in St. Louis. Imagine: that voice, singing a brand new song written solely for the movie, and you're just hearing it for the first time ever! Back in the day when movies were made well, with people who could act well and things were still left to the imagination. Enjoy this video, this wonderful voice and the message she's sending! And again, pause my Playlist!
When you're with a child, and you see a blinking red light in the sky, ask her, "Do you think that could be Rudolph?"
