... and Random 5 with Nancy!
I'm a sucker for this meme. It is my favorite because I just love
all the randomness that you all post and because
it's pretty much the only one I participate in.
1. It has been colder than a witch's you-know-what! Holy Frigidness!
You go outside and you feel like you can't breath.
Thanks Polar Vortex!
2. With that said ... I can only imagine how high our
heating bill will be for this month.
And not because I want the heat cranked up.
If I had my way the thermostat would sit nicely at 68*.
My husband prefers to see that baby sitting at 71/72*.
It doesn't sound like much but trust me ...
those few degrees have me perspiring like a marathon runner!
3. With that said ... I sleep with a fan on 365 days a year!
Yup! You heard right.
I NEED that white noise to fall asleep and to stay asleep.
If the power should go out during the night ...
this gal bolts upright in a nano second!
4. My husband hates that I need the fan's white noise to sleep.
But hey ... he knew that when he married me!
So he sleeps with his side of the electric blanket on high 365 days a year!
Thank goodness for dual controls, huh?
5. We've gotten six snow storms since early December.
I guess I shouldn't complain.
Could be worse ... they were all pretty minor.
Nothing above 10 inches.
Which brings me to .....
I have given Gumby permission to just roam around the house
and entertain himself when I can't be his playmate.
The other day I could hear him talking and laughing
and telling tall tales.
When I turned around the corner to see what he was up to ...
there he was
on the steps
with dust bunnies captivated by his every word.
I'm thinking "Rut-row" ....
maybe I need to pay more attention to Gumby!
So, I asked him what he wanted to do ...
his wish was my command.
He wanted to go outside .... in the snow!
I explained to him how cold it was and that I didn't have a scarf for him.
He didn't care.
So ... outside we went.
He loved it!
He was fascinated by the snow and how it felt.
He was a little disappointed that the snow was too fluffy
to make a snowman ... someone he could play with ...
but then I told him about snow angels.
I can't tell you how many snow angels he made ...
too many to count!
He had fun!
Now I probably should go and knit him a scarf.
