Hot Soups Cold Daze

Celebrate with champagne and bring on the Sun Hot Soups Cold Daze

Hot soups cold daze have blasted into celebrations of the new year. Lots of Southerners with a cold stare daze in their eyes.  2017 dusted Gulf Coast with sprinkling of snow. Apparently, this was only the beginning little did we know that a weather bomb was in the future. Since the East Coast had a winter hurricane, I probably should not whine about the freezing temperatures that we have had on the Gulf Coast.

Before we know it, we will have warm days that lead to fun in the sun but until then, it’s damn cold. My fountain even froze over for days in addition to everything else resembling a puddle of water. No matter what you have had to deal with  in your house, it has been cold.

Cold weather is a great time to put a dent in the woodpile and enjoy the fireplace. At the first freezing temps Southern girls are quick to pull out the fancy winter clothes. We  have to wear them quick along with our newest boots.  Otherwise,  if we blink, it will be 70-80 degrees again.

It is true, just ask.

I don’t know about the rest of you but frankly I am ready for some sunshine. I like cold weather fine but its like company that stays past four days. Hot days and cool nights suit me fine. Never ending days of cold is just too brrrrrrrrr for me. 2018 has continued to bring ever-changing temperatures for all of us.

Best part of cold weather besides another reason to wear my boots is sitting by the fireplace. The memorizing effect the fire has on me is calming. Surely fire taps into our caveman DNA and forces us to watch endlessly. Cold cold go away, Mimi wants to go out and play.
