We have had some cold weather here. Yes, I am sure that you are saying 'cold, you don't know cold'. Actually I do know cold. I grew up in Nebraska, spent 30 years there so I do know it. Today in Florida, we have cold. It was about 33 when I got up this morning and it was raining. Rain here but there were reports and pictures of some snow in other parts of the region. I see the prediction is for a temp of 28 tonight. The heat is running constantly.

I took Wraggs for a few walks today. She seems to enjoy the cold weather. No problem doing a mile walk. I had on my warm coat with the hood up. When I got home my legs were COLD. The cold air went right thru my jeans.

The cold weather has Ellie wanting to sleep really close to me at night. Last night I even put the little blankie over her so she would be warmer, not a problem for her, she was happy with that. Probably not happy that I was up a few times. I didn't sleep well. Just things on my mind. I love when she plops down next to me, it has to be on my left side only and she molds herself to my side. I have a king size bed....and I get to sleep on about 2 feet of it. I need to push her over a bit I guess.

And the Heathens do NOT like rain and cold. They always have to escort Wraggs outside when she potties. They stay on the screened in patio while Wraggs goes out. It is a ritual and fun to watch the escorting. This morning I didn't have to chase them around to get them in the house. They were more than willing to come in to eat some breakfast.

I am actually enjoying the cold weather, it is hard on the plants here. I've lost a few plants in my yard and garden area. I'm sure the strawberry farmers are really stressed from the freezing temps. I've been going thru my closet looking for warm things to wear. I really need some nice cotton sweaters. I guess I should go online and find some but I won't use them till next year. But a good sweater will last...wish I hadn't given that red and white cotton sweater to goodwill last year.
