Oh Baby, it’s cold outside!

grumble in winter

gelid breath answers to none

snow cloaks in silence

      1. Brrr, to say the least. We’re contemplating moving again and then when I read about bad winter weather I am grateful we live in an apartment where someone else has to shovel the snow.

      2. Believe it or not, our apartment complex has garages! We’ve looked at condos and not many have garages or indoor parking but we’ll keep looking. 🤞

      3. We have a home with a one car garage… my car lives in the garage. 😉 Sometimes when we go to a relative who has a two car garage and only used one space my hubby pulls in… and he teases that his car has tasted what it’s like to be in a garage… And I just smirk. My car isn’t trading places!
