32 Degrees and is freezing cold, at least here in California. As much I want to curl up in bed, I can’t. Today, I have to battle the visibility and drive through the fog. I love autumn and winter months only because I can use boots and thick coats, scarfs and berets. I like it even better if I can stay home, have some hot coco and maybe watch a movie with my kids. But, I have to help pay the bills so I don’t really have much of a choice. It does make me feel significant, though, so it is all good…

The only good thing about coming in early today is that I am able to leave early as well. I have a lot more shopping to do and I am hoping to have it all done today. Alyssa and Elijah’s swing set is fully assembled and functional. It is such a large structure that it almost took a quarter of our backyard. The kids haven’t really enjoyed it because of the cold weather, however, we are looking forward to long happy hours outdoors during the summer time…
