when it's this kind of cold, you wear two pairs of everything and your whole body still hurts.  I'm overly caffeinated because I've been drinking coffee and tea non-stop to trick myself into feeling warm.  at night I just want to cuddle with my laptop and watch Say Yes to Dress episodes because of the heat it provides.  it's supposed to be 30*F this weekend and I'm looking forward to that heat wave.  that's a 40* temperature change -- I may break out my shorts.

I'm officially over winter.

lately it's been way too cold in my apartment.  me and my cat both just want to curl up under a pile of fluffy blankets all weekend.  I will gladly pay someone to stop in every few hours to make me hot cups of tea and give me a new Netflix recommendation.

any takers?

it finally feels like winter here in Vermont.  we've had temperatures well below zero the past few days, and I don't remember the last time I was this cold.  I love snow, but I don't love spending hours shoveling porches or pushing cars out of ditches.  it all looks really pretty until it seeps into your boots and coats your mittens, leaving you perpetually cold.  I spend my days wearing two pairs of socks and as many layers of flannel and Uniqlo heattech as I can find.

today the weather man on NPR said that it was the coldest morning of the season, measuring in at a bitter -6*F.  at least in the morning there isn't much wind so it really only feels like -6, not -25 like it did this weekend.  I need to move somewhere else, fast.

the cold & crisp morning made for a wonderful sunrise, though.  I snapped these pics on my iPhone while driving (which, unlike texting, isn't illegal yet).
