It's beginning to feel alot like.....winter!


What I'm reading: Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas & Raven's Gate by Anthony Horowitz.
What I'm working on: Nothing writing-wise. I cleaned my closet instead.

I received this weather alert via email and text today. (You sign up for
this sort of thing when you spent 22 years in tornado alley.)

The following Watches, Warnings and Advisories have been issued for Orange County by the National Weather Service:

WIND CHILL WARNING – in effect from 7:00 pm Wednesday to 9:00 am Thursday.
Wind Chill Warning: Sub-freezing temperatures combined with forecast winds of 10 to 15 mph will produce wind chills in Orange County of 20 degrees or lower overnight, reaching as low as 15 degrees before sunrise Thursday. Extra precautions should be taken to reduce exposure.

I can't tell you how excited this makes me!!!!
I've been complaining about the 75 to 80 degree weather that plagues our winters for awhile now. As of this moment -- 5:41 pm Eastern time -- it's only 43 degrees. Woohoo.

I'm putting on my new Curvy jeans from the Gap (made for girls with butts! Yeah!) and my favorite green turtle-neck sweater from Old Navy and my cozy brown boots and I'm heading to the library to pick up a reserved audio book.

And then, mostly for the coffee (yeah, right....) I'm heading to the local Books-a-Million so I can find a cozy fireside book -- completely different from a sweltering-its-always-summer-here book.

Happy, happy, happy!!

My toenails are supposed to be white ... winter white?

About the best I can say is at least we get it for three days at a time, not three weeks.

Jeans for girls with butts? Please tell me they don't have giant logos on the back pockets--all we need is more attention, right?

I happen to like the warmer weather (I frickin' FREEZE when it's cold), but a little frost is fun every once in a while).

I love the few cold days we have, too! I have to change outfits a dozen times a day so I'll get to wear some of my sweaters!

I've been hearing great things about the curvy jeans, and lucky me I got a Gap gift card for Xmas!

Sounds like you had a fun, cozy night! Personally I can't wait until it warms up :-)
