Oooooh, It's Cold Outside .... brrrrrr

It's around 10.30pm Tuesday night, and I just came back inside from walking Chicky's friend home, after a day of playing outside in our backyard for the two of them and a pack of other kids !!

It is sooooooo cold outside ... my nose felt like an ice block (we were only outside for about 10 minutes). I think we are in for another frosty night tonight. We have had some beauties lately. Check out my car from last week ....

It's been a productive day on my part, although it started and finished very lazy. I got out of bed around 9am, watched Little House on the Prairie on cable, had my shower, had breakfast, and watched last night's final episode of Six Feet Under. (Chicky was over at a friends for a sleep over, then to a movie, so I was alone !). Then I decided I really had to do something. I went to the supermarket to buy some food for dinner, then came home and stripped ..... I bet you are thinking something naughty here ... my spare room. It has been ages since I have seen the floor in that room, it has become a sort of dumping ground for anything and everything. This took awhile, but the end result was worthwhile ... I have a floor again, and I found some things I've been looking for for ages !!

I then cooked a lovely dinner ... roast chook, roast spuds, honeyed carrots, peas and corn, with yummy roast chicken gravy. Mmmmmmm ... gosh did that taste good, even if I do say so myself !!!

We have just finished watching the final episode of Survivor (wish Terry had won, rather than Aras ... oh well !!), now CSI is on (which I don't watch ... which is why I am here on the computer!!), then they are showing the Survivor Reunion show. Then I think I will watch the Soccer ... I think it is Germany V Ecuador (my family are German, so I am hoping the Germans win !). Thursday morning our time, the Aussies play Croatia ... they need at least a draw to make it into the next round ... come on Aussies come on, come on !! (Gosh, I really sound like a TV-head, don't I ... well, I guess I am !!!)

Anyway, that's my day ... not particularly exciting, but I enjoyed it !! It is school holidays, so we can relax and not do anything if that's what we want. Tomorrow I have my folks coming over for dinner, then Thursday night Chicky has 2 friends over for a sleep over. Guess I'll be doing a bit of extra cooking these next few days.

I think I might leave it there ... I have probably bored you enough with my rambling !!!

Oh yeah, please don't forget to put your pin on my Guest Map (find the link on my side bar), if you want to and you haven't already done so. I would really love to see lots of my blog-friends join me on it, and to see where-abouts you all live !! It's all in good fun. Thank you.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone.

Take care,

Can relate to the cold weather, we are getting a few minus temps up here. Stay warm. hugs gail


I envy your cold weather. We are in so much hot weather here. Need a lot of rain to take away the heat.
Your ramblings never bore me. It is interesting.

angel, jr. said...

It's been rainy up here.

Clare said...

It's been a bit cooler here today and it's raining now and quite windy. I'd prefer it to warm up again though.

I tried to do the guestmap thing last night but my computer froze so I'll try it from work.

Dick said...

I did your guest map yesterday so am already there but I'll go back to see how many others have been added since & where they are.

The other Miata at the drive-in movie last Sat night had a license plate I thought you would be interested in. It is MEOWWTA which sort of says Miata. That is that families second Miata so they both have one to drive now. The third car that showed up was a Mercedes Bentz but they brought their 6-week old baby so needed the bigger car.

Michelle said...

I am envious of all your spare time. I wish i had some :(
Oh to be able to watch all those tv shows, i wish i had time for cable tv, i don't een have time to record anything LOL.
It looks freezing down there....it's overcast here today, but still 23C

Reverberate58 said...

As hot as it is here I have a rough time thinking of icy mornings. I made a pot roast with potatos and carrots. I was lazy I did it in the croak pot. I pinned your map! I recognized lots of your friends! Cool!

Meow said...

Gail ... thank you. We haven't had any minus temps yet, the lowest we have had so far is around 3ºC the other night. Still darn cold, though.

Fridays Child ... thank you. We need lot of rain, too, to help refil our water catchments ... they are way down.

Angel ... send some our way !!

Clare ... enjoy the reprieve from the heat ... i'm sure it will be back with a vengeance !!

Dick ... thank you. I love the number plate of the Miata ... too cute !!

Michelle ... thank you, it is nice having all this spare time ... a short while ago I was flat out, too. We are enjoying sunny 15ºC days ... 23 would be nicer, though !!

Reverberate ... thank you. Mmmmm, pot roast ... nothing nicer. I've never used a crock pot ... time I got one, I guess !!

Have a great day, everyone. Take care, Meow

Sonia said...

Hi Meow, sounds you had a lovely and fun spare time!

Kendra Lynn said...

Its so weird to read about it being cold there! Strange how this world works, isn't it?


Meow said...

Sonia ... thank you, yes I did.

Kendra ... the world is an amazing place, so diverse. Wouldn't it be boring if it were the same everywhere !!

Take care, Meow

Chloe said...

i did your guest map too. it's lovely to see where you are. i mean i knew where you were but not the exact point on the map. we are not that far away from each other! :)

Meow said...

Chloe ... thank you. I guess we are not too far away ... only a few centimetres on the map LOL.
Have a great day.
Take care, Meow xx

ange said...

hmmmmm. it has been chilly in melb. but i must say today(wednesday)was a beauty! the mornings have been freezing when i have had to leave for work at 6am. 2-3degrees. brrrrrrrrrr.
hope u had a good day!

Peter said...

Hi Meow, good to hear your day was pleasant.
Are you planning to post the cactus/spider story? if not I might put it up in a few days.

Alice said...

You're more exciting than *I* am, I'll tell you that for nothing.

Anyhow, I envy you and your cold cold weather right now because it's boling here right now, and I don't respond well to that much heat (especially not when I'm stone heavier than I should be, but that's my own fault and a moan for another day) - but my cats are really enjoying it even if nobody else in thr family is.

Can't complain too much about the weather, anyway. We're really lucky climate wise in England.

Hope you all enjoy your holiday. Sounds like you're a brilliant cook. I'm learning, slowly.

Hey, I can now softly scramble eggs and boil pasta; I'm doing really well!


Hugs xxx

PS: This is REALLY embarrassing, but I can't find the UK on your map thingy. I've never been good at it; I just look for the shape, and even with zooming I can't find it.

You may all laugh at me now...

Meow said...

Ange ... thank you. I guess we are copping the same weather, you are only a few k's away from me !! Hope the cold mornings aren't too difficult. Drive safely.

Peter ... hmmm, not sure ... whoever gets there first, I reckon !!! I actually hadn't thought of posting it ... you do it !!

Alice ... I know what you mean about the hot weather ... I'm kinda overweight, too !! Also, I am not a brilliant cook ... I get by, I have a few recipes that I do well. Good luck with finding UK on the map ... there is already a pin there, all on it's own.

Have a great day, friend ... take care, Meow xx

Saur♥Kraut said...

oh wow, did this post make me hunnnnnggrrry! We're on our way to Applebees. What I need is a guy in my life that loves to cook. No, I take that back. I'd be as big as a house~!!! I signed the map!

Heidi said...

I'm not a lover of heat..I'm looking forward to the fall and cool nights.

Meow said...

Saur ... thanks for signing the map. I wish my guy would cook ... I spose he does, in summer, on the BBQ (does that count ???).

Heidi ... isn't it funny how we always want a season we don't have. I'm the same, I can't wait for Spring.

Have a great day. Take care, Meow

Nicole said...

Hi chicken, Stripped lol.
Love what you've done to your site. I must put up all my cat lover buttons too. Can I use you little black cat to link to you? That would be cute. Much love as always, Nickers xox

autumn said...

Today is the first day of summer here. So next year when I'm complaining of being cold you can grin and think about how nice and warm you are ha ha.
Enjoy your day

Badoozie said...

roast chook? what is that pray tell. it does certainly sound like you are a good cook.

Meow said...

Nicole ... thank you. Use whatever you'd like, no worries !!

Autumn ... OK, that sounds fair !!

Susie ... Roast chook = roast chicken !!! Sorry, we Aussies say some odd things ... wasn't thinking !!!

Take care, friends ... Meow

DayByDay4-2Day said...

I'm up there now. Boy we are far from each other.

Meow said...

DaybyDay ... thanks ... it's not that far when you look at a globe ... just across the ocean, really !!
Take care, Meow

green eyed girl on planet earth said...

Hi my friend
I guess the cold I sent was a little much , the heat you blew over is nice though thank you , Seems like you are super busy lately, hope your well . keep checking the mail, let me know ,K!
I could have walked there by now ,the only thing stopping me is I am not HOLY enough to walk on water, unless frozen LMAO

Meow said...

Greeneyes ... yep, too much cold, send some heat ... plllleeeeease !!
I keep checking the mail, will let you know as soon as it arrives. Like I said, another parcel took almost 2 months to arrive from another friend in Canada. Who can figure !!
Big hugs to you, too, my friend.
