A Chilly Day

We Floridians are getting a small taste of what you folks farther north have to deal with all the time. Last night on the way home from church I passed quite a few trucks out in the groves keeping an eye on the citrus trees and awaiting the impending freeze. When I took the garbage out this morning the temperature was 27 degrees. No snow, of course, but quite a bit of frost everywhere. This poor plant looks so sad! I had a few errands to run, but I put them off in favor of staying indoors where it's warm. It's the perfect kind of day to enjoy a cozy fire (and wear myself out trying to keep it going)... Peruse the latest catalog to arrive in the mail...And play with play-dough. :)It's supposed to be 70 degrees tomorrow, which is a good thing since we're just about out of firewood. :) How's the weather in your neck of the woods?

Well as you know my weather is about like yours. It has been so beautiful during the day, although cool. Those nights are rough though, when you are not used to this.

We had some chilly days this week here in North Alabama but today it was in the 60's and very pleasant!

Hi, Thanks for stopping by the KJV blog and leaving me a comment.
That post is not suppose to come out until the 24th. But I accidently hit publish and had to go in and get it off real fast. You must have read it the few minutes it was on.

I write on Sharing Pearls Sunday 2 times a month and on Train Them up Tuesdays every other week. I'm sure you might enjoy reading them.
We have different writers every day on KJV Blog.
The weather here in Louisiana is cold the past few nights. We, too have been enjoying the fire.

It was in the high twenties and thirties by us this past week... a small heat wave for us, LOL!

P.S. Have you seen the new book out by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke -- The Centurion's Wife? I definitely recommend it if you can get a copy! I borrowed one from our base library, so I'm sure it'll be in your local library, too. Just thought I'd share that info with you :o)
