It's that time of the year....

Snow is drifted everywhere…

and the real temp is –14 with the wind chill reading at 31 degrees  below zero right now. It is 73 days till Spring!!  The high for today is to be –12 and the wind chill is to be 40 – 50 below zero because the winds are to be  gusting higher.

Footprints from the paper carrier.

And so life goes on as does global warming??  I am in sweats again today.  I did put some makeup on though as I scared myself each time I looked in the mirror yesterday.  I will spend the day cooking I think and reading more on the Nora Roberts book.  It is very interesting although a tiny bit on the supernatural side, but then a lot of her books are that way.  This is a trilogy and there are 2 more books to follow in this series so of course I am hooked.

And speaking of books, the downloads for Nook and Kindle are different.  I like my Nook but I much prefer a book that I can hold in my hands.

Stay warm…and Stay safe and be happy!!

Beth

  2. Good Morning Beth, It is cold, cold, cold, and like you I am in my sweats. Your foot print picture looked like mine before they cleaned my driveway and steps. I am staying home today just to cold to get out. If my calendar is right we are in for some more snow later this week. I think a pot of chili sounds good. I like Nora Robert's books. Have a great day and enjoy your reading. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  4. I too like a physical book Beth, but I do admit to have never even held a kindle or nook, but I love to pop along to the library and come back with an armful all for free, right now I'm reading 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce, and it is fascinating, I find it hard to put down, a man of 60+ receives a letter from an old female colleague saying she is dying of Cancer, and he goes to post a reply and just keeps on walking 600 miles, no phone no change of clothes just a dedication to save her. I'm dying to know how it ends but I won't peek. Take care. XX

  5. Bitter cold and snow seem the name of winter's game. I'm just thankful to be above zero today. I'm a Kindle fan...especially when it would normally be a big fat book!

  6. No make up here. Not going outside so I don't think I'll scare anyone. They say global warming causes unusual weather patterns with the ice and snow moving south. Hope their wrong. BRRRR!

  7. We are having the same bone chilling weather here, although we didn't get any
    snow. I am wondering about the global warming too.
    Stay safe and warm Beth!

  8. Aha! That answered my question. We have an iPad and a Kindle in the house and I have yet to read a book on either...though I sure do read a lot of blogs. You made me laugh with the makeup...I'm sure John would appreciate my putting some on. Have a happy day, despite this fierce weather, baking and reading!

  12. Yup. Though it's in the 50's right now we will have your 14 degrees tomorrow. It's raining and the snow is melting. Tomorrow should be a quick skate to work.
    Now back to laundry.

  13. It sounds like it is a stay indoors kind of day, Beth. Our paper delivery is from someone who drives a car. He leaves it in the mailbox at the end of the driveway. Enjoy that book! xo Nellie

  15. We are going to be 7 degrees tomorrow - a record. Schools have already closed for tomorrow. We are such wimps here. That is nothing compared to your snow - you have ice. sandie

  16. I am an avid reader and I like to flip pages. I like my kindle when there's a book I want to read now. I now find lots of books in the thrift stores since everyone is going electronic! Yay me!

  17. Our temperatures are only a little bit colder than yours. We've been hibernating too. Gets downright boring tho. We hope your window got fixed or it would be really cold in your kitchen.

  18. Which of Norah Roberts books are you reading that is first of three? I think you mentioned it earlier but I've forgotten. I love my kindle. It is great for novels. But if it is a reference book, it is too hard to move around so I prefer the book. I bought a cover for my kindle that enables me to hold it like a book. Stay warm, Beth. Bertie

  20. We have the same exact weather. We are just layering the clothes and alternating keeping busy and then relaxing.

    I have a Nook but can't pass a book store or the book section at Target without picking something up. I like both but I find the Nook to be more comfortable as it's lighter and you can hold it with one hand.

    Stay warm!

    XO,
    Jane

  22. We're supposed to get down to 25 tonight. We are wusses in Florida. Please don't judge us too harshly when we complain about cold that is nothing compared to yours.

    Love,

  27. I agree with you about physical books. I have a Kindle & a Kobo, but really still prefer the "real thing". Stay safe and warm, and enjoy your book!

  28. I think of my blog friends in the areas that are so bloody cold every night when I see about how cold it is on the evening news.
