One good thing about winter....
First off, let me eat my words and advise that my Christmas tree has not yet come tumbling down in a fit of needles, lights, garland and shattered ornaments. By some strange phenomen, however, the 50 odd plastic icicles my daughter adorned the tree with are shedding faster than the cats. I get up in the morning and they've fallen like apples off an apple tree...but I've yet to find another ornament dislodged or piece of garland out of place. Go figure. I was hoping to entertain you with stories of this...
Don't know about you, but I'm COOOOOOLLLLLDDDDD. I don't care that my co-workers and customers think I'm nuts for typing with gloves on. I don't typoo THAT much... Mother Nature was kind enough to add to the subfreezing temperatures and we got lots of the white stuff yesterday and last night.
So I started thinking about what I could do to stay warm. Of course, staying in bed this morning, cuddled up to the hubby was my first and favorite idea, clearly that didn't happen. Here are some more warming options, in no particular order...
- long, hot bath
- cooking oneself in front of a toasty fireplace (I tend to get close enough to singe hair...)
- thermos of hot cocoa
- of course, one could do something insane, like physical activity, but since we're not in that mindset, we'll ignore that option.
- curling up with a HOT HOT HOT White Hot Holiday book from Ellora's Cave.
Okay, I added that last one so I could get a plug in for Jaci--her Holiday quickie, Holiday Bound was released yesterday. I'm behind on my reading, but I definitely intend to hide for an hour or so this weekend and hopefully chase away some of this chill!
And just cuz this is my blog and I *can*... keep in mind that I've got a slightly longer (novella length) Holiday story coming out December 14th. When I Close My Eyes involves lots of HOT moments in front of that aforementioned roaring fire in a snug little cabin.
Hmmmm, me thinks hot cocoa, hot bath, PDA loaded with Hot Books.... yeah, I could warm up.
How are you staying warm this winter?
