Warm Wishes


It's 18 degrees outside right now...
...feels like 9.
I'm in my flannel jammies tucked in bed
 waiting for Downton Abbey to come on.






Warm Wishes to You!
...or at least some chocolate!

No need to feel sorry for me...
...as I am fortunate to be flying to sunny and hopefully warm
 Florida to visit Dad on Tuesday!

Looking forward to a good long visit with Dad,
Mr. Flea's Mom and Dad and sister Lynn!

Did someone say...Florida flea market?
I'm suddenly feeling warm again!

Ha! I have never felt temps as low as 18 to my knowledge. I don't think I could feel the difference between 18 and 9. :) Hot chocolate sounds good ... we are snuggled by our fire place. Have fun in FL!

Have a good time. My parents just arrived in Florida today. They will be there for the next two months. I was hoping to get there this year to visit, but I don't think it's in my budget. I HAVE to get a new vehicle.

Laura, it's hard for me to imagine cold like that!

We've had Series 1 and 2 of Downton Abbey here last year and I can't wait for Series 3.
Mary and Matthew just have to get married otherwise I will be devastated!!!!!!!!
Aren't the clothes exquisite - I want to be a "time traveller" and live in that gracious era!

Enjoy your special time with your Dad and other family - precious.
You'll be able to thaw out too!

Your photos perfectly capture the essence of the North.

I'm ready for Spring....since I'm already getting the seed catalogs, why not?

Have fun in Florida. Hope you find lots of bargains.

It's been snowing here in the Pacific Northwest too. Ugh. I am not a fan. I'm freeeeeezing... and just finished a nice, hot cup of cocoa. YUMMY....

Stay warm and enjoy that lovely trip. We have Hawaii planned for May, but that's a LONG way away right now.

Hugs,
