I Watch TV........

It is in the single digits out there and doesn't fell much better in here. I have both wood stoves puffing away and I can't seem to get warm. Layers of clothes, long johns,two pairs of socks.


Speaking of socks I have spent the day creating sock monkeys. I took pictures, but can't locate the connector for the camera. I have three completed and six more in various stages of completion. I have it down to a science now.......... and I am out of socks to sew.


While sewing I have been watching Lifetime. It must be infidelity weekend. All these women spying and catching their husbands in flagrant affairs. What really makes me wonder, though, is the fact that all day long as I have had the TV on in the background as I have been sewing doing my various chores (going out into the frozen tundra and bringing in wood to stoke up my fire) is that not one of these women are watching TV! If these shows are supposed to depict a normal life, why is there never a TV on? Even on the daytime soaps, why isn't anyone watching TV? Am I the only one who watches TV while I do my chores? Just wondering.


Sleep sounds good now, so I am going to turn off the TV and go take a shower in the hottest water I can tolerate, while my comforter is in the dryer. Then I will toss more logs on the fire, crawl into bed with my comforter and dogs. There we will wait for love of my life to come home from work....... then we will turn the TV on!

In the depths of all this cold, thank goodness for any kind of warm we can find. Stay warm.

It is bitter cold here too! I have to take Holly Bear out for a walk and I am dreading it... but she's been "in" for 2 days and is going stir crazy. How do you explain to a rambunctious dog that it's just too cold for humans?

Winter has come early this year and is unusually cold. Brrr. Maybe you need one of those blankets with arms. I forget what they are called. My fingers are always cold.

The TV is always on here making noise in the background while I work. Unless I'm in the back room where there is no TV and then I enjoy the silence or listen to music.

Sounds cozy! Nothing like a good fire to make a house feel like a home.

INFIDELITY WEEKEND? Oh no!

So sorry you're in a deep freeze, Kathy. My friend Garret (RVing With Jim And Garret) blogged about his new hometown of Charlotte, NC being in the midst of the longest cold spell on record... and my friend Jennifer at Shiloh Prairie Farm (Goats In The Garden) ran out of propane and had to sleep in her coat last night! Somebody please call Al Gore and tell him Global Warming has failed to show up again this winter. Idiot.

Brrrr. Pretty mild here at present but I commiserate!

You know - I never thought about the TV thing, but you're right.

I love sock monkeys - they are so much fun. And I want a wood stove. Want.want.want. My next home is definitely having one. I miss the one I grew up with

Stay warm and busy! :)

I usually don't have the tv on if I can help it - my husband like to have it on ALL THE TIME! I prefer peace and quiet. Then I would prefer music.

You sound like you're a busy little bee.
