Baby it's cold outside
Just weeks ago we were in the middle of the January Thaw and now we're into a deep freeze.
Is Old Man Winter being a bit of a prick? Or is Mother Nature experiencing some ups and downs? As a mature woman, I kind of know how that feels.
If the colder weather holds out for a few more weeks, I can hopefully get my young folk out to one or two Winterlude events. Alas, the once-loved family tradition doesn't hold as much attraction any more.
Maybe they would be interested in celebrating Burns Night or Burns Supper in a local pub? I don't think I have ever tried Haggis and from the description, don't think I will any time soon.
I am familiar with a few of Robert Burn's poetic works. Most are difficult to understand due to the accent and writing style. Regardless, I like the idea of a celebration to break up the cold winter months, to get people out to socialize in restaurants and pubs.
Since I shy away from loud, drunken crowds, I may just resort to a bit of writing or snuggling up in a warm blanket. Of course that's after the glamorous domestic duties are done.
Whatever you choose to do this weekend, may it be pleasant, safe and enjoyable to all.
