What I Do When It’s Cold!  


So it’s definitely cold outside. February in Illinois tends to get that way. Guess what I do when the temperature dips below freezing. (And, BTW, it’s definitely more than just one.)


  1. Complain bitterly as I push the thermostat into the 80s.
  2. Plan a vacation to anyplace with a sundrenched beach.Here’s one from my December trip to Maui. Isn’t it beautiful? OMG March 2nd after B
  3. Force my cat to sleep on my lap.    OMG Kitty after C
  4. Take pictures of the weather and tweet about it.
  5. Explore hot drinks, including hot toddies, hot chocolate, and hot tea. (Hot coffee goes without saying. It’s the only way I open my eyes in the morning.)
  6. Snowball fight!
  7. Barely notice. I’m a writer. I sit inside and write. Who cares what’s happening outside?
  8. Scream as my cat burrows her cold, wet nose beneath my clothes to press it against my belly.
  9. Have fun with weird thermal leggings.

Answer: 4, 5, 8 and 9

  1. I do complain bitterly, but my husband would cut off my hands if I messed with the thermostat.
  2. I dream about vacations, but planning is not my forte.
  3. Nobody forces my cat to do anything. I have the scratch scars to prove it. That picture was just lucky. And BTW, I really, really had to go pee. But she wanted to sleep, so I stayed put. (The things I do for my cat!)
  4. I do tweet about the weather, but mostly about my cat being annoyed at the weather. Follow me on twitter @JadeLeeAuthor
  5. Yum! I’ve discovered certain specialty teas. Quite delightful.
  6. No snowball fights. That’s too much work. Though I will watch and give commentary as the neighbor’s kids have at it.
  7. I notice the weather all the time. My writing chair is right next to the window so I can stare out and pretend I’m thinking when I’m really just watching the geese crap on my back lawn.
  8. My cat loves pressing her cold nose against any skin. And she knows how to burrow beneath tee shirts and sweats.
  9. I do love my thermal leggings! See! Here’s a picture! OMG Mar 2 2nd toward the end
