Polar chills

It's cold. It is 55 degrees outside and that is not bad. But it was 86 degrees one day last week, and that makes 55 seem frigid. I found this polar bear today and brought him home. It seemed appropriate in the circumstances.

I went to a baby shower this past Saturday. It was a big success. All those onesies I bought were a hit. I even found some Beatrix Potter character snow globes to sweeten the pot. She hasn't found out if it's a boy or a girl, so she's using a woodlands theme for the nursery and they fit right in.

So I have just made myself my first official cup of tea for fall. I've had hot tea a couple times over the summer, but this is my official first cup. Mmmm. Tea. The first cup of thousands. Many will be augmented with a dollop or two of schnapps. I find that hazelnut works wonderfully in black tea. So seasonal, so warm...

I'm going to go put hazelnut schnapps on my grocery list right now.
