Shorts and Sweaters

I have lived in South Texas long enough, all 34 yrs of my grand ole life, that I know you very well could be wearing shorts on Christmas, that you never pack away your summer clothes and you have very few winter clothes which your rarely unpack. I don't even own a "winter" coat. I own several "windbreakers" some lined if it is really cold. But this weather we are having now is really getting to me. Yesterday it was 75 degrees and I was in shorts. Right now it is 33 degrees and raining with a chance it might warm to 45!

I DON'T HAVE CLOTHES FOR THIS, DEAR WEATHER GODS!!!! And I have to go to work! Please, have mercy on my thinskinned self!

Yes, I am working on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As my boss said "sorry, but this is football season for us." as in tax season. I am glad that the boys and Chosen One get to stay snug in their jammies for the day!

We have a high of 13 today and -4 tonight! I am freezing--I seriously can't get warm! The end of the week is supposed to get up to 40 degrees and that sounds like a heatwave!

I hear you, sister Texan. You definitely need to layer in Texas...and knit yourself a scarf!

I'm glad your little family got to snuggle together on the holiday - that must have given you smiles throughout the day!
It's cold here, too - and I don't have to worry about looking professional! I am sending thoughts of sweaters and woolen skirts and slacks - will that help? :)
