It is Cold Out There!

 It is NOT warm here !! "They" said the high today was 39 - felt colder, and low tonight 22 !?!?! :(
The thought of getting out in the cold to shop for Christmas makes me cringe ! So What did I do instead? Stayed in, made a pot of soup, played on the computer, and other important things like that. :D

Cards have been addressed and mailed - Yay! I really like the cards I sent out this year . They had a nice greeting inside, then I added my own note/message. Yes - That is GLITTER on the front and I now have glitter all over my table, place mats, etc., etc.. Is it not amazing how a "Little Glitter Goes a Long Way" ! ! ! I bet the post office workers sparkle this time of the year !!!!
Not only do I like the cards, but I got them last year at an after holiday sale - half price $4.50 a box. Makes me happy !
I am linking up with Linda @ "Nifty Thrifty Tuesday"

Hope the weather is a little more friendly in your spot of the world, but from what I have seen on the news many are already dealing with snow and ice.
Stay warm!

It really is soooo cold Glenda! The sun is deceiving. I keep having to go back inside for my coat, because the sunshine makes me think it is warmer than it is. Your Christmas cards are so pretty, and you know I love a bargain! Try to stay warm. laurie

Glenda it is cold here in Atlanta! Love your cards. I promise myself to get mine done this week!!

Karen said...

It's cold here in MS too! Down in the 20's here. The soup looks so good and I know it is a wonderful feeling having the card all sent out.

It is cold here too! I had soup for dinner as well and it was oh so good.

Laurie said...

That was a good buy! I am so jealous - haven't done my cards yet, and this is quite late for me!

We actually saw the sun today for a few minutes...first time in a week! When I got up this morning the wind chill was 5...ugh.

I have my cards...bought mine last year too, but I just can't get in the mood to send them this year. I usually have them in the mail on Dec. 1.

We're having the same kind of cold as you are. I spent yesterday cozy at home making homemade cinnamon rolls....yum.

Leann said...

I agree stay inside with that yummy bowl of soup/stew!

Enjoy and stay warm!

Maybe that's why I haven't opened my glitter yet... Cause I'm really messy.

Very cold here as well, a big ole 21 today! Snow on the ground, doesn't make me happy at all! Soup sounds really good! I love your centerpiece with the nuts, a very unique ideal! You also had some wonderful after Christmas sale goodies. I always love red! Thanks for visiting. Have a blessed week!

Debbie said...

Freeeeezing here too. That soup sure warmed me up though! Good score on the cards.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

What pretty cards...looks like the two of us both like to by our cards at 50% off!!!

Blessings,
Linda

Betsy said...

Wow, you're way ahead of me on the cards, haven't even bought them yet. I'm right along side of you with the soup. I made up a huge pot last week and froze enough for about 12 servings. Yummy, it looks good.
Stay warm and cozy.

It's pretty cold here in Texas too! Your soup looks delish... and your Christmas cards are just adorable!!!
Blessings~~~ Daphne

Looks like we have similar weather, Glenda. It's so cold here too. Try to stay warm!...Christine

dogsmom said...

Although we had a bright sunny day yesterday the thermometer refused to hit 20 degrees. Time to acclimate, I guess.
Beautiful job on the cards.

Olive Cooper said...

Freezing also, your soup looks like the bomb. Yay for getting the pretty cards done. Mine are addressed and not mailed.

Betty said...

Brrr... it's cold and rainy here. Time for a fire. I love glitter on cards. Kudos to you for getting them done.

Diann said...

I can totally relate to the weather being so cold. It is so bitter out there that it hurts! Your cards are so pretty! I love the envelopes.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Thanks for joining Junkin Finds Friday! It is still cold here and I'm getting hungry for some good soup! hugs, Linda

Cold here in S.C.too. Soup and computer time... doesn't get any better than that.
Your cards are beautiful.

Elaine said...

Love your cards..and you made them nicer by adding glitter. Very cold here in Michigan.. I fixed chili to warm me up.

Southwest Cottage Designs said...

Pretty centerpiece. Like you, I purchased Christmas cards after the holidays last year. But you're ahead of me. I have to get mine ready this week. Happy Holidays!

Susan said...

I really liked your mirror base with the nut tree and birdies. Soooo unique! It's c-c-c-c-cold here, too. So keep warm and cozy! Susan

Ms. Bake-it said...

I lvoe your centerpiece! Great deal on the pretty Christmas cards. Even here in Florida it is pretty darn cold!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Soup looks awesome and a deal on cards is great. At the price of stamps, I had to buy dollar store cards this year to afford the stamps!!

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Ooh that soup looks great. And the bad part is, it is only 830am here. lol
