Charlie, I absolutely LOVE the Wile E. Coyote images and the "harrumphing" cat!
Could have done with some of that Fire from heaven
today; it's wet, drizzly, and cold
here in the "beautiful" San Francisco Bay Area. And the heat in my house doesn't reach my downstairs work abode, where I've been a LOT of the past many hours. A crisis from 11:00 p.m. last night until 1:15 a.m. this morning, at the computer again to follow up on the crisis at 7:30 a.m. Finished work approx. 4:45 p.m. All of it miserably cold.
I'm wearing an undershirt (long-sleeved camisole). A turtleneck. A knitted vest. A sweatshirt. And a crocheted shawl wrapped around my neck. A crocheted/knitted (yeah, both skills) hat. Two pairs of socks--one short, one long. Slacks. (And, since some of you will wonder: yes, bra and undies.
) Closed-toe, tie-up shoes to keep in what small fraction of body heat the socks manage to trap.
And my hands are like blocks of ice
. My toes are cold
. The dogs, lying on the for-god's-sake floor
, look comfy as all get-out. The cats are curled up
on the bed, the upholstered chair, the whatever that's cozy.
But NO Fire from the sky
. Nope. Just cold, wet rain
WINTER SOLSTICE!!! The days will slowly begin to grow longer now.
