Feeling cold in Europe? Want to be warm on Christmas day? Feel free to come to Georgia, USA, where the predicted Christmas high will be mid-seventies.
Wait, isn't it supposed to be cold on Christmas? With the fire burning and people huddled up in warm clothing? Something's wrong.

Same, bud. Been mid-fifties past few weeks round these parts, but a warm front's supposed to move in tomorrow. For the rest of the week. Ugh.

I wonder how long the average human would survive at 70 degrees... Not too long I suppose. Unless you're in a sauna. No, I will not acknowledge the existence of Fahrenheit.

Judging how I felt today when I stuck my nose out of the front door at dry heat 38 I think 70 would have to be spontaneous combustion, Raptori.

To be honest I'm very edgy, the grass is so dry it's ideal tinder, there are so many fires starting now around the country it's going to be a bad couple of months. We have an excellent app called Fires Near Me NSW which pinpoints them all on the map and you can click for distance away and status, so that is helpful.
I imagine arguments being swallowed back, wine spit in glasses and gurgling up bottles. I imagine my ring sliding off my finger, Bobby's lips hot on mine for the first time again, and then unknown to me.

TBH it is ridiculously warm here for this time of year. Playing Zombiefluxx. Has anyone here played any of the flux games? Ridiciously fun and very easy to learn.

It's ridiculously warm here too actually. It's supposed to be like -10 to -20. It's +8.  ???

Yay! ^_^ I served this apple pie to a friend to day and she liked it! The base is pretty thin on this one, so if you like a thicker base, you could easily do a 1.5 x batch or even double if your pie dish is big enough! :)

She has, so I've been hard at eating.  8)

Just added a print stylesheet to the blog, so if you just click print it should strip out everything unnecessary.  ;)

I think the kitten was spooked by the little droid... she'll probably be back at some point. She's a bit flighty like that.  ???

*drools* That looks absolutely amazing. And it's gluten free, which means even my sisters could have it!

EDIT: actually, this would also work for my friend, too because she's gluten free and allergic to most dairy.

I try to visualize all the driving on a familiar, long route. Puts me to sleep everytime. Unless I had coffee too late. Then I'm screwed.

Wishing you rest.

Wish I could've slept longer. But Linus drank too much milk during the night, which resulted in him being really wet. While trying to change that he made him and me even wetter. So I did the logical thing and took him with me in the shower to make us both completely wet.
I hope he realized that I won this. ;)
Alas this made him fully awake at 5.30 am...
