Extreme Conditions - The Coldest Day On Record!
It is the coldest day on record here today. When I went shopping this morning right after I dropped Jade off at school (amber is home sick at the moment) it was only 2 degrees! It is freezing!... well it is freezing by my standards anyway, which I might add, has got me thinking. If it is only 2 degrees and I consider it freezing, how on earth would I manage to live somewhere where it snows?? I complain about the cold - and we don't even get snow! I don't think it helps that we live on the very top of a rather large hill - right on the ridge and it gets very, very windy up here, and the wind is...well, freezing!
Maybe I just can't handle extreme conditions - and I say that with a certain level of sarcasm. I mean, I can't handle the heat when it's summer - anything above 30 degrees is a heatwave for me, and I can't handle the cold either...maybe I was just born to kvetch?! If I wasn't, Aaron certainly was, geez, anyone got some ear plugs? He just said he is thinking of setting himself on fire he is so cold! Lol!
Anyway, today I am posting some photos I took of Ruby (3yrs) at the playground in the next town when we went a few days ago - that was a sunny day!
Ok, I can't feel my fingers anymore so thats it from me today.
.... Just another day ....
