This morning, this is what I saw. (Please ignore the fact that my dashboard needs to be dusted. Who dusts in cold like this??)

After temperatures in the 50s last week, it's hasn't gotten above 10 degrees this week. And the thermometer showed temps below zero every night.

Until today.

This afternoon, we shot up to a balmy 20 degrees, and oddly enough, it really did feel warmer.

In other news, now that it's nearly the end of January, it seems like a good time to start thinking about New Year's Resolutions.

One of mine is to list three things each day for which I am thankful. That's an easy one!

1. Our wood stove.

2. A good supply of firewood.

3. Plenty of sunshine, in spite of the frigid cold.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

This was the temperature in our town yesterday. And it was sunny. We turned off the heat and took off our coats.

Today it's 40 and feels SO cold.

But it SHOULD be in the 20's, at best.

I sound like I am complaining. And I am. Because, well, it's January.
