It was 27F this am and got up to a whopping 32F during the day. I don't do cold well. I prefer to spend my days wrapped in a thick fuzzy blanket (or several!).
I started thinking, though, about my childhood and what we did in the winter. I had a Pinto named Dixie who looked very much like this horse.
We would go out for sleigh rides with Dixie puling the sleigh.
We would go ice skating either on the pond at home, or in the backyard rink at my uncle's house.
Do any of you remember these?
My hands get so cold and I hate wearing gloves. I am considering getting a hand muff.
I hand one as a kid, but it looked like this. Did you?
Did any of you ever do this?
I stuck my tongue on the metal handle of a shovel.
We also cut our own Christmas trees. We lived in a forest so there were no lot trees for us!
Do you remember these nightgowns and mop caps? I loved them!
This one shows you that I was even fat as a kid!
We would have family night every Sunday with games, popcorn and iced tea (Sweet Tea).
Today I am thankful for warm memories on a cold night...
