c.c.c.c.c.cold outside!


OK.. I have to admit  its stinking cold outside!  I just took this picture on my porch this morning.  thats the overnight temp... out of the wind on my enclosed porch..  Yesterday afternoon it was warmer when the sun was shinning through, it made it up to 3 below out there!     
I didnt go to work yesterday, though not because of the weather, because Lyndonville has been very lucky not to get the snow... only a few miles south of us had the full fledged blizzard conditions.    Anyway, I stayed home because I just didnt feel well.. I still dont and while I was contemplating staying home again today, which I would really like to do, I remember a couple things that need to happen today at work.. so Im going in.  Im not sure I'll stay all day.. (I say that, but once Im there I probably will stay.)  

Yesterday I did pretty much nothing.  just tried to stay warm and cozy.  I attempted to play at my craft table for a bit in the afternoon, but had a head ache and what I started wasnt turning out like I wanted it too.. Plus.. these two fuzzy wuzzys kept getting in my way.  they really just wanted to curl up some place warm with me.. so we pretty much stayed on the couch with magazines and an afghan.all day.


I did make this coffee cake yesterday morning.. which I proceded to eat almost half of!  Hubby had a little piece and I'm pretty much finishing it this morning!    but I did lose 3 pounds this week!  god only knows how I did that!  but I'll take it!
my tootsies are frrrreeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzingggggggggg!
so Im going to go get myself together to go to work...
I hope my car starts....
This weather is brutal....  however.. its supposed to warm up to almost 50 over the weekend...  craziness.. but I'll take it!
going to take some tylenol and make another cup of tea.. 
toodles and happy day

a little edit here...
sooo duh!  
I obviously can not read a thermometer..
I was reading the Celsius side and not the Fahrenheit side.  so it is not negative 8 on my porch.. and yesterday it was not negative 3!   eiy yie yie... my husband told me I was wrong yesterday  and I told him.. "whatever.. Im right".   He didnt tell my why I was wrong... If he would have pointed out to me that I was reading the wrong side, I would not have been so hard headed about it..   oh well..  
lets just not tell him he was right.  He knows he was right.. but Im just going to forget about it!
lol!
(I just sneezed 9 times in a row... thought you might like to know that! lol)

It's darn cold (no matter how you interpret the thermometer). The polar vortex has seemed to leave our area...it's 4 degrees this morning. A heat wave. It's off to school we go. Take care of yourself, Viv.

Work sucks when you don't feel well. Hope you feel better. That cake looks great. Did bow tie kids ever send the outfit?

All I know is this California girl thinks it's darn cold in the Mid West and East Coast! Hoping you feel better!

Theresa said...

Oh I am ready for a little warmer weather, no matter what the thermometer says:) Enjoy your day dear friend, STAY warm dear friend, HUGS!

Hope you feel better soon. That January thaw is coming to CT this weekend, too. Hang in there!

Sorry, but I have to laugh at that relatively warm temp that you posted as a cold temp. In Minnesota the governor closed schools 1/6/14, and local districts closed them again the next day due to the bitter cold. This morning it is 20 below at my house with a windchill of -39 degrees. This is a warm up, so kids have school today! So enjoy :-)

Hope you are feeling better soon, Vivian. Our weekend is supposed to warm up, too. I was hoping it would as we are going into Dayton to see a show on Sunday and I hate driving when it's icy roads. I'm starting to get cabin fever now, so it will be nice to get outside even just to walk the dog!

Hope you feel better today! I am still not going to work - schools are closed. I'm going to play for one more day:) Stay warm!

It's sooo cold! It's a little warmer today, but still in the negatives, no school for our areas yet. Stay warm!! xo Holly

LOL- Glad your sneezes aren't coming through the screen here. I am sorry you aren't feeling well...but maybe that was a day that you just needed to be down and comfy cozy with the critters.

It is cold here, too, and your hubby will NEVER hear a "you were right" from me! xoDiana

Too funny cuz us Canadians only read the celsius temperature so I totally understood what you were saying..lol! I hope you feel better soon! Oh and Nat & I are in for a Spring get-together :)

I thought when I saw your thermometer, man, it's almost 20 there. We had extreme temps here also. My thermometer is digital and I thought it said 23, when it actually said 2.3 degrees. Yikes...and God Bless You (for the sneezes).

I'm home sick, too, so I know what you mean....go in to work...or not. That cold weather would stop me in my tracks. I don't know how you all do it! Get well soon!

Such a great color choice for this area! In our previous home, almost all the walls were a similar yellow to yours. I loved it at the time, but I'm really liking lighter neutrals now. Of course painting would be your first project of the new year!colorful room design
