I think I'm seriously becoming a cold weather wimp.  The cold never used to bother me too much, but for some reason this winter has really got me shivering!  I try not to complain because I am so thankful to have a nice house to warm up in and plenty of hot coffee to drink!  The good thing about the cold weather, though, is that it's made me slow down just a little.  This time of year moves a little slower, the kids go to bed earlier, and I've had just a bit more time to do this.

So maybe the cold weather's not all bad. By the way, typically you'd see me with my slippers on, but they're in such bad shape I was embarrassed to wear them for the picture.  I've had them for almost 9 years and well, duct tape is holding them together.  There, I said it.  My slippers are held together by duct tape.  And if you've known me for a while, you'll know that this is not the first pair of my shoes I've duct taped.  I have a hard time letting my favorite things go, I guess.  How's that for transparency on the blog?  You probably know more than you wanted to know by now.  Maybe I'll break down and buy a new pair next year.

P.S. - Yes, this picture was taken before Christmas - we don't still have our tree up!
