The temperatures stay in the mid-30s (1°C) in North Texas, today. Since it is close to the freezing point and raining outside, the girls and I stay cozy by the fire. Since, I started the fire in the fireplace, Luis hasn’t moved a muscle on the ottoman. He really and enjoys the heat. What a lucky pup?! Lexi and the cats are snoozing on soft blankets. Katelynn and Sara have Winter Break until Monday. They still have to do their daily school work, which includes reading books and practice clarinet. Their brains need to stay in sharp, when they go back to school. But homework and riding out the cooler weather is so much more fun with hot chocolate for them, and cappuccino for me. 😉
Due to a cold front coming in the temperatures began to drop, once it started to rain yesterday afternoon. A layer of ice covered parts of North Texas. This morning when the sun came out, the trees looked like ice chandeliers. Mother Nature put on one of her prettiest Winter dresses for us to enjoy. But now, the sun is strong enough and melts all this icy prettiness away. It was beautiful, while it lasted.
