If We Were Having Coffee on Friday the 13th


It is a great day for coffee as we settle in to ride out the ice storm, enjoying an unexpected four day weekend. I am glad I was able to clear my work schedule today and stay home and off of the slick roads. Funny, just two days ago it was 60 degrees and fabulous. I know, it isn’t supposed to be that warm in the middle of winter but I loved it. Now here we are bundled up in blankets, looking outside at the ice-covered tree branches. Sixty-five days until Spring.

I heard on the radio yesterday that pitchers and catchers report to Jupiter, Florida on February 14th. Valentine’s day. Spring training is just around the corner. The MLB season will be here before we know it. Only 78 days until opening day.

Easter candy is already on the shelves. So it can’t be that far away either, right? I got a wonderful surprise in the mail this week. My lovely friend, Violet, sent me a package. I opened it up to find:


I love Violet! And there’s 92 days until Easter and then my beloved mini eggs disappear for the season.

The freezing rain is supposed to continue through the weekend. All of the ice will melt away next week when the temperatures climb back into the 50s. A few days holed up in the house snuggling and eating and watching a glaze form on everything outside never hurt anyone. One could even argue that it is therapeutic. Today we baked cookies. This weekend I also hope to spend time watching TV, reading and writing. If we get cabin fever, we just need to remember… 65 days until Spring.

Catch me up. What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. I’m happy the eggs were a nice surprise, I get super excited when I see them for the first time each year lol. It’s probably the only time that super early marketing doesn’t irk me!

    I think a few days of snuggling in and staying warm and safe is a good idea every now and then. I hope the ice doesn’t cause any headaches and you can just enjoy a nice lazy, cozy weekend.

    1. Me too! The earlier mini eggs hitched shelves the better! Thanks again πŸ™‚

      The ice actually hasn’t been as bad as expected. The trees are covered but the roads haven’t gotten too bad. It is raining now.

  2. I’m so glad that I live too far north to be hit by the ice storm–freezing rain is so nasty. It sounds like you’ve got a good attitude and I hope you enjoy your cozy days indoors! πŸ™‚

  3. I live in Queensland Australia. We are experiencing a mini heatwave at present so its sweltering hot. Our coping strategy is staying indoors in the air conditioning and going for a swim in the pool at night. The pool sounds good but in reality it was really warm 😣Please send some freezing rain our way. Not too much though cos that would be annoying! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  4. We’ve had two rainy weekends so far which makes for just a perfectly cool weather, but the gloom can be quite a downer, not that I’m complaining because I’ve had some reading and writing done. πŸ™‚ Have great week. stay warm. πŸ™‚

    63 (now) days until Spring and I can hardly wait! We’ve had an unusually warm winter here and it has me itching to get outside and dig in the dirt! Though I must practice my patience and know this, I’m still itching πŸ˜‰

    Hope you have a lovely rest of your weekend and week ahead!
