Winter blues...

Today, in this part of good ol' North Dakota, the temperature is a freezing (for a lack of a...different word) -20 degrees.  But don't forget that with the wind chill, it feels like -40.  Oh, how I love negative temps!  Along with all the cold temps, we have a million feet of snow on the ground...or so it seems.
This picture was actually taken last year, before the world of a heated garage was introduced to me. I am fairly certain that we have more snow now then we had when this picture was taken.  But, either way, you get the point...we have SNOW.  And I will sell it to you for cheap! (I will post this years pictures at a later time, but right now I don't want to look at them!)

And I know that I shouldn't complain about the weather and the snow and the freezing cold temps because I choose to live here, but that's what I'm good at.  I will continue to complain about this snow until it goes away forever...so that most likely means I will complain, forever! I wish I could say that I am used to it, but I'm not.

I don't think I would dislike winter so much if I had something to do.  But my indoor hobbies are limited to watching TV,  playing online (which you can only do for so long before you are bored again), and putting puzzles together.  I have ONE outdoor hobby, and that is shovling snow off the deck and sidewalk, which takes like 5 minutes (or as long as I can feel my fingers and face).
This is my 7 layers of clothing last year when we were trying to dig ourselves out.  NOT a happy camper!

But please, if you can bring Spring a little faster, I would pay you a billion dollars! Seriously!  I don't like being cooped up in the house.  And I forgot to mention that my husband is starting to drive me nuts.  Remember that saying, Absence makes the heart grow fonder...well I wish hubby had something to do outside because he is taking up my "me" time! Love you, hubby :)

As for now, I am going to go back to starring out the window, wishing for days filled with sunshine, planting and watering my garden, drinks, and watching my boyfrie...I mean Joe Mauer and my beloved Twins. 


Have a WARM day!
