First Thursday of the New Year

Today is January 4, 2018 and it is the first Thursday of the new year.  What does that mean?  Absolutely nothing.

It fell below freezing last night but is supposed to be close to 50 today which I am very happy for.  I don't mind it being a bit cold, it is winter, after all, but days and days of frigid weather with cloudy skies are just not my idea of a good time.  Growing up in the southern part of the state it was rare we had long stretches of really cold weather so I am not used to it at all.  Even though I have lived up north (Texas) for almost 28 years, I just don't think I will ever acclimate -- the winters are cold and the summers are really hot and there is no gulf breeze like in the south.  I just have to muddle through and wait for October -- my favorite month of the year.

I am still unpacking boxes and I finally found my Kindle charger.  I knew I just threw it in a box but I couldn't remember which one but it didn't take long to find it.  It is a good thing, too, because the device was about to die and I am in the middle of a pretty good book.

I don't know what today holds but I am feeling better so that is good.  I don't have to grocery shop so that is even better.  We might go look for some fireplace logs for our fireplace.  It will burn wood or do gas and I prefer gas logs.  So, that is going to be our Christmas present to each other.  We need it in this weather.

I hope you all have a wonderful first Thursday of the new year.  Try to stay warm!
