It's Fucking Cold

First off, for those of you that didn't understand the "don't throw the cheese slices at your baby sign from Saturday's post. There are memes and videos about it all over the place. Yeah, I know it's stupid but what can I say. That's society.
Second, today is trash pickup day. I took my customary hot shower to get my back to feeling better got dressed and took the trash outside to the cans sitting in back of David's truck. He moved them so they would get the cans by the carport. Anywho, Lucy was going to come with me but hesitated, smart dog. It took approximately three minutes for me to put the bags two in the can. I finally got the feeling back in my hands and feet. Stupid me didn't put on mukluks or parka. I knew it was going to be fucking cold but DAYUM!!
I came back in, turned on the coffee maker and poured a cup. Put my warm socks on and fuzzy killer bunnies and sipped my coffee while looking out the front door. I could barely make out the temperature reading but I think it said 22 but not sure. My computer said the ranch says 32, no 30, no wait 32. Yeah, it's hovering.  The wind is a killer. Makes everything feel like 17F out there. David called and asked if the little fat dude in a red suit was still sitting in one of the Adirondacks on our front porch this morning. I said so that was what Lucy was barking at earlier this morning. David said there were also a couple of big ass deer with racks of antlers yay big walking around on people's lawns munching on grass and plants. I asked when did the old guy leave because no one was out there anymore. Just a whole lot of what looks like elk turds.
Spunky
The weather guy says it will be getting colder tonight. They say down into the 20s maybe teens. I made a giant pot of veggie soup on Sunday, especially for this week. It should be good enough to carry us until the temps get about into the 50s which will be around Wednesday.
Lucy
Lucy is all wrapped up in her blanket on the sofa next to me and  Spunky is wrapped up in his blanket snoring on the recliner. I heard the heater just come on. I turned it down so that it only comes on when the house temps fall below 60F. It's going to be blowing warm air in a minute, which is good because it's getting cold in here. I have the plants that were in the courtyard all inside in the dining room. Since David and I don't use the dining room except for family occasions I turned it into a growing room. A whole bunch of happy plants under the grow lights right now.
Well, I need to go check on Spunky because he's in the TV room and he's blind and tends to get up and roam around like a broken Roomba. Then he starts barking out in frustration until I come to his rescue. Poor old man.
So all y'all stay warm and have a magical day.

It's 44 right now in Florida and I hate fucking cold weather. It's supposed get down to 29 tonight...that's just not right! Damn polar vortex! If I had wanted cold weather I would have stayed in Maine 45 years ago and built snowmen in the winter. Did I say DAMN? I think Trumplethinskin must have something to do with this cold weather. That measly orange bastard! Grumble! Grumble! Grumble! Now, I'll go put some socks on and stop belly aching like a little whiny bitch and do what any self respecting blogger does...go whine about it on my blog!

all my effort to cover the ponytail palm yesterday...I checked it last night when I got back from yoga and the damn wind blew it all off. Fuck. so I will be out in the freezing wind trying to get it covered again. I'm just waiting for the predicted high of 45˚. Fortunately I don't think it got cold enough long enough last night to do it damage. it will be tonight though. the little dog is curled up in my lap wrapped in a blanket under the heating vent. we keep ours at 68˚ during the day, 65˚ at night. not willing to go colder.

It has finally warmed up to our high temp for the day - 42 degs. Ugh. Yes, tired of summer but not ready for winter. What happened to Fall???

Windchill is the WORST. Stay warm!

I am declaring this completely illegal! We are not supposed to be this cold in November, and should actually only have a couple of days like this in January or February!

Rain said...

Spunky and Lucy are adorable!!! :) Oh gosh, keep warm! I'm hibernating soon that's for sure.

It is freezing where I live too and I live pretty far South where the green grass grows.

Laura said...

I had never heard of that throwing cheese thing and honestly, I'm ashamed to be human right now. That is just not funny. Personally, I like the cold. Hope you are having a great day.
