The cold is here to stay!
It never got over 60* today (yes, that IS a big deal when it's November and you live in Southern California! Three weeks ago, it was in the 90s) . The wind is cold, the air is cold, even the sun is cold. I love it.
But I'll love it a lot more when my new winter coat arrives in the mail! I'm so excited. I've never owned one. Living a mile from the beach, I never needed one! But these inland winters kick butt. I'm cold all the time.
Our poor little house is an ice box. It has central heat, but it seems to heat up all the rooms we don't use before the ones that we do use. Kinda pointless. Last night, Jesse and I huddled under piles of blankets in the den while watching a movie, our little space heater going full blast. It does a great job!
And this morning, I had to jump back out of my car and scrape ice off the windshield when I realized why I couldn't see through the windows.
Kate is coming over tonight. I love my crazy sister. She's working on her Senior Sem thesis, and needs a quiet place for the evening. It'll be fun to have her back. She lived with us during the summer, and we've missed her! What I had planned for dinner isn't enough to feed three, though, so I've got to hop into the kitchen and get creative.
Hope you're enjoying a wonderfully winterish week!
