You know it’s cold when…

Iris the Lavender Leopard Gecko says,
“It’s cold out,
Think I’ll put on a hat!”

I feel sorry for my Bff and her family and their pets. They’re pretty much snow and iced under where she lives. It’ll probably be into next week before they’re melted out enough to get back to normal life again.
The above photo is compliments of my Bff, it’s her grandchild’s gecko named Iris.
I smile every time I look at this fun photo. I think, you know it’s cold when a gecko in a heated terrarium puts on a hat. 😉

Here in my neck-of-the-woods, it’s a toasty 18°. The sun is shining and the sky is clear and blue. The snow is melting some on the roads and in the yard but not in the shade. It appears our thaw has started, perhaps we are headed for warmer weather for awhile. Perhaps…

Wishing you all blue skies and sunshine
and a warm thawing rest of the week.

1st snow of 2018 , BananaNut Flats

1-4-2018 We got our 1st snow of the year.
Well, it was most of a dusting and only lasted an hour, but I’m counting it.


1-5-2018 This morning, I made a batch of banana-nut flats.
I really like the way they turned out.
I enjoyed a couple of them with strawberry cream.The heat from the oven and the aroma of the flats baking sure made my home warm and snug.

It’s 12° here, that’s been the norm for several days. It’s forecast to warm up to the high 40’s sometime in the next few days, I’m so looking forward to it.

You all bundle up and keep warm.
Stay safe during these cold winter days.

2017 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Temporary

2017 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
~Temporary~

“This week, show us something you appreciate
despite —or even because of — its short shelf life.”
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I appreciate snow and icicles as long as they’re temporary.
We haven’t had a major snowfall in awhile, so
I went through my photos in search of snow and ice.
These 2 photos are a couple of my favorites from 2010.

 Wishing you all fun with the WP photo challenge!
