It’s a rather tropical 3C out there this morning and I’m just as snug as a bug in a rug with these temps.  Actually, that’s a lie.  I’m trying to convince myself that I’m warmer than I actually am.  It’s not working.  Where are my 80*F days?  I want them back!  And then add to that  that some knucklehead maintenance man hasn’t shut off the HVAC because the overhead vent in my office is blowing cold air instead of warm air.

Hello!  It’s mid-October and this is central Minnesota ya knucklehead maintenance type people.  It’s kinda cool out there now.

People must think I’m a penguin or something.  I like to die from the cold.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

      1. that’s why God created mattress heaters. you slip it on under the sheets, plug it in, set it to “HIGH” and there ya have it.

        see, this is why young women like you should be chasing old guys like me. we know stuff that young guys haven’t learned yet.

      1. I think its in the 40’s, but it just feels chilly to me. I love a roaring fireplace though. I will even get it going when the windows are open (so it doesn’t get too hot in the house…Lol).

      2. yeh, our 80* days are done for this year. roaring fires are great but a huge PITA to keep the fireplace clean. oh wait … you have kids at home. ha ha for them! put em to work!

      3. Lol…I’m cheating a bit as this is a gas fireplace, but it is a BIG one. It’s more efficient at heating my first floor than my furnace. I just have to click a switch…Lol (I’m looking at putting a wood fp or pit outside though…nothing beats the real thing.)

      4. that’s not cheating; that’s smart. I have a gas fireplace too. low maintenance and it’s furnace rated. there are times I just turn it on and leave my furnace off or I’ll turn the furnace fan on so it circulates the warm air so it will heat the house. and I love my fire pit. it’s been a lot of fun having it so far.
