Happy Frozen Valentine's Day

I know that those of you who were hit by the big winter storm of 2011 will not appreciate this post. You're sick of the snow and ice and cold. About the last thing you want to see is . . .



how miles of ice show up when the tide goes out, or . . .


. . . how even the setting sun lacks warmth,
casting a cold white ray of light across the mudflats.

It's best not to dwell on the weather this holiday. When you gaze into your Valentine's eyes, just keep repeating to yourself, "Cold hands, warm heart . . . Cold hands, warm heart," as he strokes your cheek with his freezing fingers. If he complains when you lift his shirt and jam your feet into his warm belly in an attempt to thaw your popsicle toes, think of me. Wait. That didn't come out right. I mean to say, if you're in a winter wasteland this Valentine's Day, you're not alone.





































Stay warm, gentle readers.



Dinner last night: barbecue chicken, steamed veggies (potatoes, zucchini, carrots)

At least your winter wonderland still looks pretty. Mine is just pretty gross. Dirty gray snow on the side of the road.
Happy Valentine's Day.

We always heard cold hands, warm heart; cold feet, and no sweetheart. Chuckle.

Happy Valentines Day! :o)

When does the snow go away in your area?

Too funny. I like when I warm my toes, but not when he warms his toes.

I like winter pictures and yours are beautiful.

Naked cuddling is the best fix for cold.

Beautiful pictures BTW.
