Cool Places

The weather has changed.  Overnight, things went from Summer-like to mid-Autumn, not even the beginning of the season.  And of course, we are still a week away from Fall actually beginning.

I am not ready for this.

I love Autumn, but my body is not young anymore.  I am sure I have mentioned the inability to warm up during cold weather.  Anymore, it seems no matter what I do, I am chilled to the bone - and yesterday's temps in the 40s,  this old chassis just couldn't chug along enough to get into the 50s.   ....and that's still 20 degrees below where I want to be on any given day.

Turning on the heat in mid-September is just really unthinkable.

Well, not completely unthinkable, because I did think it.  I just didn't do it.

The thing is, I can work from anywhere, no that it's a home office situation.  I just need Denton to get a job where he does the same thing - though maybe not in the same home.  Working and living in the same space 24/7 might be too much for either of us.  Yes, a warmer climate would work for me - all these losers on House Hunters International seem to be able to telecommute from Belize.  Why can't I?

More seasonal weather is expected over the next week, but I didn't like this peak into later October.  Not one little bit.

I guess I'll just have to invest in a Slanket or two.   Sorry, I can't afford the Snuggie.

Wouldn't today be a good day to make arrangements with some snow removal company to take care of your driveway this winter? You don't want to end up on your ass again, do you?

Dial up your cozy-meter with the Siamese Slanky for two! Although wouldn't that make it harder to get cozy? Yeah, it's too cold too soon. I'm not ready! Now I already have my down afghan out.

I thought about turning on the heat AND I DID IT! I cannot stand being cold. and I don't give a fat rat's arse what time of year it is either!

I so feel the same way! I less young I get on the calender, the more I dislike the cold. The Husbear is finally starting to understand my sentiment. Maybe we could all buy a nice white beach island somewhere in the Florida panhandle and all work from there?

Oh, and the Snuggies are always on sale at Walgreens. Don't ask me why I know that.

Yesterday we had the heat on AND the window units in! We call it the AIN'T: aint summer, ain't winter!!!

I miss the seasons. I often say I want to retire to a place with seasons, including winter/snow/cold. But I wonder if time in AZ and age would make this uncomfortable. I know a lot of people who live here as it is easier on their constitution.

I don't get the picture. If I were you, I'd pay for a service to remove the snow. That's what I'm doing this year. It's called maturing thank you very much.
