One of those days

Brrrrr. It’s one of those days. Chilly and gray. Not raining yet (which somehow makes the cold gray colder), but we’re about to head into a week of unusually heavy precip.

It’s the kind of day when even goofing off seems like too much work. The temptation to crawl back in bed with the mattress heater cranked up and a dog and a cat on either side for extra warmth is strong. Very strong.

I may just go do that. After answering email. After Thanksgiving shopping. After a mid-day workout. After prepping a blog for tomorrow. Eventually.

Meantime, if you’re having one of those days, or if you know somebody who might occasionally need some geeky good cheer, here are some totally goofy toys, courtesy of Amazon Native Ads and me:

    We got hit with lake effect snow squalls off of Lake Ontario on Sunday evening through Monday morning and got around 10 inches of snow where I live in North Chili. Temperatures have been in the low to mid 30s but it’s dropping into the 20s tonight, the coldest temperatures of the season thus far. WNY can get some rough winters, like we had two years ago when we had the coldest month ever in February:

    Rochester’s coldest month. Ever.

    21 degrees here in NE Wyoming this morning. BRRR indeed. I have lost so much weight in the last 18 months that I’m feeling the cold far more than I ever have before. My electric bills are going to be awful this year, I’m sure. The summer was also so cool that the logs that make up the outer walls of my house never got warm either. That makes a big difference, since it will take a tremendous amount of heat to correct that – and it’s necessary before the temps dip down into the minus area. I’m expecting a very cold winter this year, and only hope that is accompanied by a good snow pack. The drought here has got us all worried about bad fires next year, though we dodged that bullet nicely this year.

    But yes… after answering email and some website/forum admin chores are done, I’m very much tempted to go back to bed. My back won’t stand for it, unfortunately… or maybe that is fortunately. I really need to clean house because company is coming on Friday. Oh well. Now, where did I leave that vacuum cleaner?

    ML — Welcome to the world of skinny people. It’s always cold in any land we inhabit.

    But even colder when you live in Wyoming.
