Thursday's Ten: Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...

but the fire heater is so delightful
and since we've no place lots of places to go....
Let it snow, Let it Snow, LET IT SNOW!!

I'm hoping for some white stuff here in mid-TN, but I'm not holding my breath. We're not exactly known for getting it when it's predicted!

However, schools have closed. I'm writing this on Wednesday evening so that I can schedule it to pop up first thing on Thursday and schools.are.closed. Not a trace of snow in the air.

Meanwhile, I'm cold.
Bone-chilled, aching, miserable COLD.

Honestly, if it snows I'll instantly warm up. There's something magical about it.

But just in case it doesn't (because that's pretty likely around here)

here's some other ways to warm up!

1. Scarves, scarves, scarves, scarves, scarves
2. Cuddling with your honey :)
3. a fun hat
4. building a small fire out of bamboo skewers normally used for kabobs...
5. bundling up with enough layers that you'll walk like a penguin
6. letting your leg hair grow so that there's another layer between you and the cold air
(I would NEVER. It's just a suggestion!)
7. using a hair drying for warming yourself up. Honestly, Driving Ms N did that.
8. having a bulldog breathe on you (Moxie's staying the weekend, just in case you were wondering)
9. running
(but who wants to do that in the COLD?!)
10. heating pads. they're not just for pain anymore.

What about you? What do you do when the weather outside isn't to your liking?

MckLinky is up, grab the button and post your top ten!
(It doesn't have to be about this subject)

Oh, and next week we'll do a "most wanted" list. 10 material things you are saving up for or just wanting...

(this just in: the bread aisle at Kroger today via twitpics. if the milk and eggs look like this we'll have plenty of french toast to go around the city!)

lol @ the leg hair one. i may or may not have been guilty of that on occasion. i think a month and a half is my record.

we're supposed to get some here too, but i'm not holding my breath.

Haha! I also might be guilty of the leg hair! I just get so frustrated when I shave and then an hour later I get freezing cold and it starts to grow back!

And why on earth did the schools close last night if y'all don't have snow yet?

We have the cold here and no snow. I am spending a lot of time cuddling with my guys.

Stopping by from SITS!

Personally I wish I could mail you some snow. Free Snow from Nebraska. No one will miss it - I promise! :)

Hello! I'm luving the new look of your blog! ur list of ways to keep warm made me smile =)

there's nothing i enjoy doing more than cuddling up in a blanket on the sofa reading a book n sippin coffee on a cold winter day.

p.s some people say that as long as ur wearing socks, mits and a cap (i.e as long as ur feet, hands and ears are warm) u don't feel cold...
give it a try if u like =)

Did you get any snow? We got about 5 inches (all yesterday when I was AT work of course) but another inch or so overnight closed schools today so I'm happy! I was at the store on Wednesday night and people were going crazy. It's not a blizzard, people, and even if it was, you probably have enough in your fridge/pantry to last for a few WEEKS. I know I do!!!
