Things I’m loving this week


50+ inches of snow. Go big or go home, right? You have to admit all this snow is pretty and it’s kind of exciting and fun, too. Of course, I don’t have to drive to work or really anywhere else this week. If I did, I’m sure this week’s snowpocolypse would be in the “things I’m not loving” list.

Tea. I love coffee, but there’s only so much of it you can drink. But…in the winter, I love to have a hot mug of something in my hand, so when I’ve drank too much coffee, I turn to tea. Mint and Chai are my current favorites. I like that I can drink it plain, too — no cream or sugar needed.

Our snowblower and my inability to use it. I’m thankful I have a snow moving machine…and, more importantly, a man to operate it. #ignoranceisbliss

Things I’m not loving this week

My gas bill. Nearly 300 for a month with relatively mild winter weather I don’t even want to think about what it might be next month.

Single-digit temps. Nothing makes me appreciate 30 degrees like 9 degrees. Also…see the item just above….this will have a huge effect on that. Sigh.

Cats in my closet. I have a long-haired calico cat that loves to make “nests” in my walk-in closet, curling up on a stack of t-shirts or sweatshirts. I busted her in there again this week, so it’s time to jury rig some booby traps (i.e. empty boxes that will fall on her when she tries to jump onto a shelf. ) I’d keep the pocket door closet, but that results in 1.) very cold clothes as there’s no heat vent in the closet, and 2.) mold because the closet is off the master bath and doesn’t get any circulation if the door is closed.
