I can’t take my coffee outside at almost minus 50 I am sure it will freeze in the mug that holds it. Instead I stand looking out the glass at the dark sky. The air is filled by icy droplets that make a chilling early morning fog. Amazingly there is a very fine soft snow falling through the impossibly cold air. I blow softly into my hot coffee and sigh as the scent of hot coffee tickles my sense of smell and then I lift my mug in a “here’s to January” gesture.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that this week has been ridiculously cold. School buses were canceled the first three days of the week. I was shocked when they ran Thursday because it was the coldest day of the week. Regardless, the boys reported having 3 and 4 kids only in their classes. So, cold. Pass the hot coffee please…
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I excited because we have our first house showing this weekend. I my eager to hear that first bit of feedback on how the house presents. Other then that I don’t think we will be up to much this weekend because this cold snap has yet to break. Which reminds me of this post a saw on Facebook. It was an image of what I assume is God relaxing and watching television. There is fridge freezer behind him. A man by the fridge asks “what is in the freezer?” And God says “Canada.” Wow, does being in the freezer capture the temperature of this week.
There were a couple great posts in response to my photo prompts: Don’t Ask Alice and The Skull. If you get a chance I highly recommend giving them a read. Big thanks to Trent at Trent’s World (the Blog) for participating!
Here was this week’s photo prompt:
Anyway, I need to do some last minute tidying. Have a great weekend and to anybody also in the cold, stay warm!
