The image above was taken the night before the Polar Vortex hit…I think that deer could sense it coming…..
Things have been going swimmingly here….We do have a small furnace off of our kitchen..so while the main furnace is on vacation, I’m sitting here typing with a nice furry blanket wrapped around me, (eating a low-fat fudge bar)…Last night I dragged my mattress into the pantry and slept in there…doggy curled up next to me…snug as a bug. Hubby loves the cold…he slept back in our ice-cube of a bedroom….
The dog can only be outside for a few seconds…then he starts holding his paws up in the air and I snatch him up and bring him straight back into the house. I’m expecting an “accident” on the floor very soon. He’s wearing his doggy sweater and I even put a dog “snuggly” on top of that when I took him outside.
The birds however, are zipping around all over by the back windows…eating as many sunflower seeds as they can…..They keep their feathers all fluffed up for insulation against the cold…maybe I should be fluffing up MY feathers!
