Yikes! I was wondering why it was so chilly today...we're getting a HARD freeze tonight in Central Florida! This probably doesn't seem like such a big deal to..oh, CHRIS, in Alaska, or even RICH & ELAINE, in a snowy North Carolina. But, given the fact that I haven't even closed my windows ONCE this winter, let alone turned on any heat, it's gonna be quite a shock to my system! Not to mention the VW-sized staghorn fern hanging out back, or the bromeliads and other tropicals still blooming away.
Guess Mark & I will be busy little farmers tonight, trying to save the crops, as we haul dozens and dozens of plants into the garage for safekeeping. (We have over 300 in pots out back. ARRRRGGGGHHHH!) We'll be like Ma & Pa Kettle tryin' to save the beans!
On the up side, I have a fire all laid out in the fireplace, ready to light, and all the oil lamps are full & burning. I love a cozy fire, and we've been lighting those lamps nearly every night since Christmas, just to give the room a nice glow. Tonight, it will be needed for warmth! (I'm still not gonna turn on the heat...I don't care if it DOES go down to the predicted 29 degrees!)
Be talkin' to ya later...if my fingers don't freeze to the computer keys! ;o)
