Nice, warm bucket . . .

Spaghetti tonight. Warm us from the inside out, hopefully. I wore a l/s tee shirt with a sweater over it for most of the day. It was 44° at 7:20 this morning.

We had covered the Hydrangea that Zeta and M gave us and probably didn't have to do that. Tonight, maybe we will do it again so that we can be sure it will survive. I have a blue bucket that fits over it and keeps it warm. If it gets in the 30's tonight, I may need my own blue bucket.

BigEd has gone to ride in the park. it is gorgeous outside if you keep moving. If you stand in the shade you will keep moving by the shiver method. We are hothouse flowers here and a good cool spell has us all looking for our own form of the blue bucket . . .

Suddenly the words "Bucket List" take on a whole new meaning. Things to include in your bucket list...sweater, heavy sox, down-jacket, blanket. Heater. Thermometer. Mittens. Hot Chocolate. Telephone (to call about the temperatures outside the bucket....)

We need to put a bucket on of this cold front and make it go away. Walking quickly to the parking garage after work can be a bone chilling experience. Hot chocolate! Good idea.

A Thermos Nissan cup of hot chocolate taken as needed. I need to replace our old Stanley thermos and Thermos Nissan seems to lead the ratings. Hot chocolate. Going to go make one, right now.
