Sunday Morning

The dusting of snow has melted, but the cold lingers. Watson has decided that the cold is not for him so he wants to just hold up and sleep. I refuse. The sun is out, it will warm up, and he needs to go outside and chase that squirrel that is busy gathering those acorns. Really?? Was his answer.20170107_082112


To be specific, it is very cold in Texas. Of course we are not prepared for this type of weather. It was 75 just last week. And if we can make it till Tuesday, it will be back in the 70’s again. I know the folks up north do not understand our response to cold weather. But I really think our bodies, through the years, have adjusted to warm weather so it just does not bother us physically or mentally as much as the cold weather. We are prepared for 100 plus degree weather come the summer time. We live in Texas.  We can drive and get around the streets and towns with no problem. A dusting of snow and the hospitals are on notice. More fender benders in 2 hours than in 2 days in August. And I honestly believe our blood is thinner. No proof, but it is very hard for me to warm up when with the wind and snow whipping and the temps are 24 degrees. And my favorite puppy is the same. Open that back door and he wants out to run and jump. But wait…dang it. Cold Wind! So he is back on the porch and mad because he wants back in. We are  both from the south.20170106_135518via Daily Prompt: Specific
