Top Ten Ways of Keeping Warm...

...when your heater is broken & it's cold outside.

10. Bake cookies and "monitor" them.
9. Play chase outside with your puppy, come back inside and realize your house IS warmer. (instant gratification never lasts!)
8. Make & drink hot Hot HOT CHOCOLATE! Don't forget the mellows!
7. Layers! Lots and LOTS of layers. Shirts, pj's, sweats, blankets. You name it, layer it!
6. Light the fireplace & sit close by.
5. Do fixer upper stuff. For example: paint a room, sand a desk, hang up some frames.
4. Balance your checkbook! (ha ha ha ha ha! funny!)
3. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & tomato basil soup!
2. Drink a glass (or two) of wine.
1. Thank GOD for my HAIR DRYER! Warm up the spot & sleep tight!

A quick story.

Today is Monday, January 14 and the neighbors down the street have their Christmas lights still up. I wouldn't really think anything of it, except that it's really CREEPY! They have a window display of a life size moving Santa, surrounded by small elves, under a RED spot light!
Seriously. It's creepy! I call it the Christmas House of Horrors!

Again, cracking me up. I can't tell you how many of these I've done living in a cold climate(although perhaps not #4 - maybe it warms up your brain??!). #1 by far takes the cake!
