You know it's cold when...
...you go out to the three season porch to get wood and your hand sticks to the handle of the door to the house.

The actual temperature right now: -21°F

(It was only a minor sort of sticking; my hand is fine :).)

Brrrr! I think it's time for you to come pay me a visit.

Our high temperature should be near 50 degrees today and we are having a pizza party for lunch.

Don't you want to come???

Love you,
miss a

I would love to come Miss A.!!
...just let me run and pack a diaper bag. :)

Actually I am warm, Mama! My little stove is behaving very well this morning. There are a lot of "tinkling" coals this morning and logs are starting well. Whew!

Once again, I admire your discipline to keep a wood stove! It really does sound cozy on a day like today though.

It is nice to be where the snow melts and the temperature has stayed above freezing so far. Thats deffinately the one thing I'm not missing about MN :) Stay warm.

Someday you and Kevin should drive down and visit! We can drink tea and you can sit and toast in front of the stove. :) It is nice to have it today.

Brrr ... ! Now THAT'S cold! But a woodstove is a wonderful thing - I love ours woodstove, anyway! I think, later, I'm going to curl up beside it with a book and a cup of tea - a perfect way to wait for spring! :)

Ok, I posted on my blog this morning about how cold it is going to be here over the next few days but that is nothing compared to your temperatures!

I am always so thankful for my snug, warm, wee cottage with it's wonderful woodstove, when it is so cold outside.

Btw - I read your Momma's blog and love it so much.

I just love your blog!! The other night on our weather the weather man said..."You know it's cold when....Richard Simmons is wearing pants". My dh and I had to laugh at that!! Have a blessed day!! ;)
