Friday 55-Chilled Lime



FRIDAY 55-Literally
Winter has finally hit.
Thank God for blankets.
I got my new alpaca blanket.
I still have my favorite old wool blanket.
I have the afghan my aunt made.
I'll use them all.
I am still cold.
 Mr. Lime keeps the bedroom at 50.
I confess 
when he's gone
I turn it up a notch.



DA COUNT

It's simple.  I'm counting an ample supply of warm blankets, sweaters, and Duluth style hats.  Oh, and a fireplace.  Now excuse me I have a date with a blanket and the fireplace....maybe a mug of cocoa too.

50 degrees? I'd be wearing a hat and gloves in the house!

Craig said...

We set the house back to 55 overnight. Fosters. . . uh, cuddling.

And - what's a 'Duluth style' hat?

Margaret said...

If my hubby even thinks of putting the thermostat below 68, he's getting the chilly treatment, that is for sure!

Brian Miller said...

ha, just a touch...smiles...this weather has been crazy hot and cold...i dont know if we got a winter...

hedgewitch said...

Yeesh--it's warmer than that *outside* here (well, 46.) I'd be counting my blankets, long underwear and days till spring! The hot cocoa sounds good, though.

I bet you turn it up a notch...
hehehehehe....:P
Up to say....55?
Loved your 55 Trini
Thanks for playing, loved your Blankie, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Just Me said...

I'd be turning it up far more than a touch!

Mother Theresa said...

Mmmm, warm blankets, I like those too. Mine is faux fur. :) 50 degrees, hmm, I don't remember Fahrenheit anymore, we set ours to 20 degrees Celsius during the day, 18 at night...looks like I'll have to look it up to see how that compares. We have to wear sweaters in the house, but it's reasonably comfortable. Enjoy your blanket and your hot cocoa. :)

Its unseasonably warm down here, its sucks, unless it gets cold fast I will be mowing the yard far sooner that I can stand.

Polly Janos said...

LOL! That's me! Mr. Sister keeps the thermostat set low night AND day. I sleep under about 4 blankets and wear my "Snuggli" when I'm at the computer during the day.

50? Inside?

That's frigid!!!

Suldog said...

The brown afghan looks EXACTLY like one MY WIFE has from her younger days. If it turned out that you and she were somehow related, that would explain a lot.

50 degrees? WHAT? We dont get that cold here in PS and I set my heat to 70! Its all relative I suppose! Keep warm

lecram said...

my solution to the to the unusual cold snaps we've been experiencing... extremely hot showers and a down comforter. I so relate to this count.

Hilary said...

Brrrr 50F?

Is he menopausal?

Steve Isaak said...

Relatable read. =)

Mama Zen said...

My husband does the same thing!

silly rabbit said...

Beautiful afghan! I'm crocheting one similar for a baby shower... only its hot pink, bright lime and cream stripes. =:]
We only heat our bedroom and our family room this time of year. I love wearing sweats and using blankets. But of course, the temp is down because we are cheap and power is not.

secret agent woman said...

In the daytime, when I'm here, I want to house warm. But at night I'm happy to have the temps down in the low 50's. Of course, it doesn't get as cold here as it does there.

Dave said...

Perhaps he wants you to cuddle up to him? :-) Dave

Jocelyn said...

It delights me so much that you still call them Duluth-style hats. Heehee.

Okay, our house is a bit chilly, but 50 degrees in the bedroom is hardcore. You need a nose cozy, too.

Dear Lime,

Love the "Duluth" reference. I am sad to say however that this has been the warmest January in history. We are becoming morally bankrupt without the cold and snow to keep us right.
