Scared, Cold, and Hungry

As I put away Charlie Brown's Christmas tree the other day, I realized I hadn't actually spotted poor Charlie in the longest time.


I might have set up a search party and gone looking for him, but then I remembered that this year's batch of icicles are desperately trying to kill me. This is why we are currently out of milk, bread, and Corn Flakes.  Why risk life and limb over superfluous things like food and sustenance? 

Now if I run out of coffee, that's an entirely different story. 

Some things are worth dying for.

  1. What! You hadn't put away your Charlie Brown tree yet! I thought I was late!! Did you ever find Charlie? I am no longer allowed to put our artificial tree in the garage attic (my leg broke through the ceiling when I got it down), but was able to find three spots for the three parts of this tree.

    Spring will come, dear one, and it will be all too short, unless you live in Florida where we have spring weather now. But we do have those sink holes here--none nearby this year.

  4. Icicles are like the killer bees only in the winter.

  5. did my comment come through? I usually get that message about waiting for it to be approved, but I didn't see it for the comment I left. Probably because I commented it was going to be 79 here tomorrow (but I do feel for you guys, I really do).

    Watch out under those icicles!

  6. Charlie Brown is freezing his manly parts off and you're worried about icicles?

    Yeah, I would be too. Unless I had to run out for wine.

  8. Great post, Mar! I commented over there, but thought I'd also give you some love here... This feels like the longest winter ever or at least in a long time, here in Chicago. Hang in there! :)
