    Lucky us. My ducks are not liking this below freezing weather. They come out to eat and drink and then run back into their house to warm up. 8 weeks seems so long!!!!!!!!!

    Right!?! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40's here - it's going to feel like a heat wave!

    You and I are about less than 2 hours away from each other if I am thinking correctly so we are having similar weather. I am from Texas and literally have never been outside where it is 5 degrees before now. And my gas fireplace has decided to check out for the season. Ugh. I am getting schooled on winter this year I believe. 40 degrees sounds heavenly compared to this cold snap.

    I am going to click my heels and repeat to myself "spring is coming" over and over and over again. Fortunately I work from home so at least I am not having to get out in the cold too much. EXCEPT for checking on my duck babies constantly throughout the day and walking my dog. What part of Texas does your daughter live? I was born and raised in Dallas and almost 2 years ago moved up to our cabin in the Maryland mountains. Quite a change but I am seriously loving it.

    Ooohh very pretty! I personally should not be complaining as I just got back from spending a week in Aruba over the new year. I guess this cold spell is what I get for basking in the sun for a week in January getting a suntan. Karma
