I hate the cold, I have been huddled up in front of our easily short circuited space heater for weeks now. The man glances at me, ducks into the kitchen, only to return with what he believes is the antidote to the untamed beastliness he sees before him, as he passes me a cup of HOT cocoa I try not to bark or nip at his fingers. The man has learned to avoid talking about the weather, the word SNOW sends me into a rage, so he tries to preoccupy me with take-out and British TV dramas, but I’m onto him… oh yes… I’m not so easily fooled… well actually I am but this time I’m not. He knows that I curse the cold and as this will be my first winter anywhere besides Arizona, I’m sure he is hoping to avoid the apocalypse, the one in which I just sit in a ball and cry because I’m too cold to move.
Okay, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but I do find my teeth chattering more than I would prefer and although I don’t mind a bit of a chill during the oh so wonderful Fall season, I’m not looking forward to what comes next.
Creating always seems to clear my mind and make life a little less serious than it feels sometimes, so I picked up a few goodies and decorated a few pumpkins for Michaels #TrickYourPumpkin challenge. I went with GLITTER and GOLD, a girl’s best friend of course.
