Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

One frozen bird

I don’t know if I ever mentioned that I am a tropical bird.  I do not like extreme temperatures, hot or cold.  If I could figure out a place that is

Today is testing me.



For my American friends, this translates to -1F feeling like -22F.  *crying quietly*

I pray for the homeless.  As I can’t even imagine what that life is like in “nice” weather.  Today is just too much.

I live in an old building.  Which apparently needs new windows.  This is the view from Diva’s bedroom.

The dining room is not much better.  At least it’s sunny out.  I think that helps trick my mind a little.

And imagine I vetoed putting plastic on the windows.  What what I thinking?

Last night the wind made me jump a few times.  The windows were rattling far too much for my liking.

Right now I am having dreams of this.


Think if I click my heels hard enough I can get back here?

Where ever you are, I hope that you are safe and warm.

  1. Our cold is not as bad as your cold but it still feels miserable. I have decided my preferred outdoor temperature range is 10-28C 🙂

  2. I have said this before but I bow down to Canadians! I seriously cannot even imagine “feels like -30C.” Melbourne generally is in the 10-28C range, but we have occasional spikes up to 43C or so several days each summer.

    • If I could have left I would have. I think this is the coldest it’s been in a long time. I read in the news that Australia is having a heat wave. Between the two I think I would choose cold as I can always put on more clothes. 😉

  3. I’m dreaming of the beach too. I pray for the homeless too. It is so cold here. Im north of Chicago and we hit -40 with the windchill. Yuck. I hate the cold. I’m a hot weather lover. 90 and I’m happy as can be.
