Friday December 8th ~

What good is the warmth of summer, 
without the cold of winter to give it sweetness...

 Woke up early as usual and caught Sniff snoozing on top of the
 sofa in the living room right around sunrise.  He sleeps with us in the 
bedroom but get up as early as I do and finds other comfy spots.

Today the temperatures are not as "bad" as the were yesterday. 
 Welcome to winter wonderland in The Sunshine State.

Friday again.  Today Downtown does not seem to be 
in our plans.   Just a little too cold for us.  Yes, we are wimps
 when it comes to the cold.  The Viking of the family, Arvid is
 even more a wimp when the cold hits.  Sniff is no better 😂
Here he is all bundled up with whatever he can find.

Sniff has already found his morning spot to chill in.  Arvid
 still in bed and I am having some quiet time on my own.  Life is 
good and I am happy and grateful for these simple pleasures.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that
 there was in me an invincible summer...
