So it's freezing here. Literally. High was 24 today, with the wind chill: 14. Now I understand it's much, much colder up north with blasts of Arctic weather bringing temperatures down so low that they're closing ski resorts. In North Dakota it got to -50. I didn't realize air could get so cold. Compared to that +24 sound balmy, but remember, I left Tampa Bay at 80. So I'm hurting.

I don't know if it's a weird coping mechanism for staying warm, or just stress, but I cannot stop eating. Seriously, dear friends, I'm eating double what I did in Florida. Normal breakfast in Tampa Bay was a cup of tea and a slice of toast. Yesterday I ate 3 pieces of toast, drank 4 cups of tea, and was prowling the kitchen looking for a little nosh not two hours past breakfast. This is not going to end well.

It doesn't help that I'm rustling up things like this.

Nope. That doesn't help at all. But it sure is tasty.

More later,
