That would be me.  Freezing cold.  I suspect that means I’m getting old.  There was a time when I was almost never, ever cold.  I’ve spent most of my life as the one who wants the heat turned down, thank you very much.

See what turning 50 does for a person?  Makes ’em cold.  Heh.

It’s possible, I suppose, that I’m turning into a normal person rather than just an old person.  After all, it IS freezing cold outside today and I do keep the heat turned way down during the day.

Here’s a glimpse at today’s weather:

The noise you hear is the wind.  And the lens cap rattling around.

In other news…

Bella caught her first mouse (that I know of) on Monday night.  M and I were in the living room when she came walking down the hallway, tossing something around.  I thought it was one of her toys.  It turned out to be a mouse, a very dead mouse that was once alive and wandering around in our home.

I’m not sure where she found the mouse.  I had last seen her heading into our bedroom, but it’s possible she was carrying the mouse with her when she went in.  I wasn’t paying close attention.

Another mouse got into the garage last night just as we came home from a shopping/dinner trip.  The headlights of the car caught it as it was running in.  Bella did her best to get it, but no luck.  I’m not sure if the mouse managed to get out while we weren’t looking.  I’m pretty sure it didn’t manage to get further into the house.  Bella would have had it by now.

(Bella, shortly after she killed her first mouse, looking all proud.)

Dress Update

Not much to say about that.  I haven’t found anything yet.  I’m currently shrinking so it might be a good thing that I haven’t found a dress yet.  All the exercise and healthy eating finally caught up with me and resulted in the loss of 9 lbs.  I also lost 4 inches from my waist and 4 inches from my hips.

I’d probably be looking as proud as Bella if I had a picture of me to post.  Without, you know, killing a mouse.
