I know it seems crazy to my northern friends. We are seen as idiots, as wimps, as silly southerners. I get it. You guys live in feet of snow for many months of the year. You drive, run and playfully live life in blizzards and white-outs.
But you see, here, I was playing tennis in 60 degree weather just three days ago. Our winter consists of wearing a sweater and some flip flops, hoping it gets cold enough to warm up some hot cocoa. So, make fun of us. Yup, the kids are out of school. But honestly? I know you’d rather be here knowing that the snow will be melted away by Friday, than sitting there with your shovel in hand knowing you’ll be looking at your white stuff for the next 4 months.
Here in Spartanburg, we are bedding down for a few days. So for my southern friends, what are we to do? These are a few of my suggestions to help pass the time away. But first snuggle in your favorite chair with a cozy blanket wrapped around you. Grab a hot cup of coffee and relax.
This collection of photographs of animals living in an abandoned house is amazing.
My heart quiets when I look at these animals in winter.

Do you need to waste some more time? Here are some quizzes you can take to get to “know” yourself better.
Which design aesthetic are you? Click here to find out. I was a Wes Anderson movie. ???? Good to know, I think.
This quiz, I have to say, did not result in what I wanted it to say. The first time I took it, it said I was a “Thank You” cookie. (I don’t think they sell those here in South Carolina.) So, I tried again, picking totally different answers. Then I was “Lemonade” cookies. I really want to be a Samoa, a crazy mix of ingredients…coconutty, chocolatey, which everyone happy, and the cookie crunch to shake things up a bit.
Feel the need to play around? I’ve got a few fun apps to get creative with.
I want to end with this…Superman- I love you! You are the Sonny to my Cher. I got you Babe! Pleeeeze! Pretty please! Click here for the most romantic video of all time…cough, cough…ahem.
Have a great snowy day! Love,
