It's really cold again.
I won't even begin to discuss the "polar vortex" thing... cuz frankly; I don't understand it.
It's cold. It's been cold before... I am sure it will be again.
Honestly, I don't mind the cold that much... but I know some folks do... and it is certainly a major topic of discussion these days.
I just see this as a wonderful excuse to have a fire in the fireplace, watch some CSI, and catch up on some reading... with my faithful puppy at my side.

And so... Things I am Grateful for Today:

-fireplaces... and roaring fires in them
-melted cheese on toast
-farm fresh apples from a local shop
-tangelos... a gift from a friend
-home-made gingersnap cookies
-books. Can you ever have too many? Right now I am starting "All You Could Ask For" by Mike Greenberg.
-the noises creeks make. We have a really tiny creek near our house... but in the stillness of the night... it's amazing how loud it can seem.
-fox. We have a little red fox that comes to the edge of the woods here... he is SO very handsome.
-speaking of wildlife... on our trip to Penn State this past weekend; we saw 6 large hawk, 4 deer grazing, and 2 super awesome ELK! I know... I didn't get photos of any of them. I think I was too much in awe as we were driving... and yes, I still am amazed by all the nature around here.
-eggs. I LOVE Eggs. I love breakfast for dinner. I can't think of an egg dish that I don't like... and I may just go make some before bedtime...
