sass 'n' bait Wow, what a great term this is! It's perfect! I love it, and wish I had noticed it ere now.

Luke--I LOVE having a window open in winter! 'Specially when Hubby's gone, as he was this weekend. I even had it open Friday night when it got down to zero. It reminds me of visiting the farm when I was growing up, when the only heat in the room was from the fireplace; in the winter my mother would pile quilts and blankets on my bed--it made me feel all cozy and wonderful! Now, though, I only need the sheet and the comforter--and half the time I wake up with the comforter kicked to the side.

Edit: Avy, the other wonderful thing about cold weather (aside from not sweating and being miserable) is that there are NO bugs! grin

Maybe he meant to exacerbate.

I sleep in an unheated room too. Piles of blankets and
feather comforter. But I won't open a window...makes the
furnace run harder, and then I have to pay for the
fuel. But I love being under all the blankets. I know
what you are saying.

As far as I can remember, something like that ...

I knew winter was over. We've had warm weather all danged weekend. Last week while driving, I saw what looked like iris tips. And today I decided it would be a good day to get the neighbors' dead leaves out of our flower garden. Again this year I didn't get to it before we had flowers coming up: we have jonquils and hyacinths starting. SIGH...
I wanna move up north!

We've still got patchy snow on the ground, and all the
melting of the last couple days, made ice, lots of it,
and it's dangerous if one is not paying attention.
Am moving my car so sun can get to the snow under it.

Made the Weather Channel news today: a town west of
here had an all time record high of 71 deg. It was
very warm here too. But no flowers yet, Jackie.

You all really got it this year. I had 47 inches in my
yard at the height of last year's storms here. I can
certainly empathize.
