coconut lime bars

I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen this much snow – on my lawn, in the streets, and piled like Mount Everest in shopping center parking lots.

It’s crazy. 

Insane. 

Overwhelming. 

Inescapable. 

I feel like I’m living in a snow globe.

banana colada muffins

It’s not even the dead of winter, and I have the heater in my room running pretty much 24/7.   Everytime I open my door, there’s a draft from the chilly hallway.  Everytime someone enters my room, I hear, “I feel like I’m in Florida!” 

So then I think, “Oh, but you’re not – we’re not. Couldn’t you tell by my layers upon layers of sweatpants and long sleeves?”

Did I mention that it snowed just the other morning?  Mmhmm, that’s right.  It snowed – in November. 

Yup . . . it’s getting pretty cold in my neck of the woods.
