The New Year

Happy New Year, blog readers! I hope you all had a wonderful first day of the year.

What Does Cold Weather Mean To You?

I woke up this morning thinking about cold weather. What does cold weather meant to you? To me, cold weather means getting out some of my favorite pieces of clothing. It means North Face & Patagonia down jackets, Ugg boots, wool hats, wool sweaters, warm down comforters, and so much more. I just love fall…… Continue reading What Does Cold Weather Mean To You?

This week I have to go to work five whole days in a row. What!? It has been a long while since I had to work a five day work week. My body sort of does not remember what that means. Ugh. Last night, post Downton Abbey, I set my alarm for 5:55 AM. Yuck!…… Continue reading A Five Day Work Week?

Friday already??

It has just been one of those weeks. Everything seemed to be on fast forward, and somehow it is already Friday. I do not understand! But I am not complaining.

Hey Everyone – I hope you all had a great Tuesday.  My work day was long, but productive and fun.
