The Weather Outside is Frightful...
And I couldn't be happier! I know you're thinking that I'm some kind of freak... maybe I am! But, bad weather means that my cocoa tastes that much better. It's that much more rewarding for me. It also means that I get to open this box....
And let me tell you... I LOVE THIS BOX! Why do I love this box? Let me show you....
What's that there?? That looks like...
SWEATERS! I NEVER get to wear them! Funny thing about living in Southern California - it's warm here. I pull my sweaters out to go to Idaho. Then I put them away when I get home. I LOVE sweaters! This is a wonderful gift for me!!

And by the way, you people are awesome! Your birthday wishes have made my day! You've put a smile on my face and I appreciate it!! And just so you know Nancy, my dear sweet Grandma wanted to name me Pearl! Wouldn't that have been fun to be named after such a horrible event? On that note though, do take a moment to remember this day. And if you get a chance on this Pearl Harbor Day, thank a soldier for their services!
Now, I'm off! It's time to have that hot cocoa...thanks again for all your sweet wishes!

Funny! :-) Hope you enjoy your 'warmth' on this frightful-weathery day.

I think I'm starting to feel like having a cup of hot cocoa...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELISSA!
May the day be filled with laziness for you! And may someone else do your laundry!

I heard the song immediately as I read the words. I'll change the tune to Happy Birthday now.
Many happy returns of the day.

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Happy Birthday! It's snowing here today, so I have on one of my sweaters too! In fact, I may have a cup of hot cocoa in your honor!

I thought I left a message--sorry!!! I hope you have a fantastic day!!!

I couldn't live without sweaters!!! I think we all should have agreed to have a cup of hot cocoa together at the time of day when you were born ; )
