Baby It’s Cold Outside


Well I know I was a bore today without much chatting but let me tell you, my house smells good. I have two tea burners going. The smell of wood burning and cinnamon is filling up the living room.

Earlier the smell of Pine-Sol infiltrated every crevice. I ended up being able to totally transform the living room giving even a bigger area for the wheelchair to get through. I did clean all the fan blades on the ceiling. The window blinds are washed. The living room walls are cleaned. Every corner is free of any spider homes. The house is swept and I even had a free pizza coming for my supper.

I was going to save the pizza deal for another time but I am pooped I tell you, POOPED. Al and I had gotten a pizza last week and it was late on delivery, cold and rubbery. The restaurant said the next time we ordered it would be free.

I am sure Al is eating fine and most likely there will be some left when he returns. It should be good for two days. I am sore but I am proud. Our house is ready for the hatching down of windows, doors and anything outside. We are ready for the winter cold.

One of these winters I will not be here anymore. I love snow when I am inside watching. I hate being in it, driving in it, and freezing.

Old Man Winter

Old man winter

Comes to visit this way

He looks at me with those evil eyes

And says snow is on order for today.

He forces me to stay inside

He keeps me under my covers

There is nothing like the winters here

I swear there is no other

I live in the snow belt area

It snows from now til May

I only hope that I survive

To open the windows some day.

  1. I read your post earlier about your cleaning which inspired me to do a little even though the cleaners will be here Thursday they don’t deep clean they only surface so I drug out the dyson and got at the cobwebs and the furniture finally the floor of the sun room where we spend most of our time. I am going to ask them this week if they will deep clean this room soon so I can close it up as it is three season only ol’ man winter starts blowing through all these windows and I freeze. Like you I don’t mind all that winter entails as long as I am inside warm and toasty. Thanks for inspiring me to get done what I could today. Sure wish I could do my own cleaning like I used to.
