Baby, it’s cold. Really cold. It seems like the entire country is gripped in bitter cold that’s not been seen in decades. While sitting here tonight, sipping my omnipresent cup of coffee, I decided to remove the post I scheduled weeks ago and share some cold weather helpers to warm you up.
First, I’m going to take time out of my day to travel — virtually. We’re headed to the Maldives. Personally, I can’t think of anything better than blue water, white sand and a hut beckoning us to sip fruity cocktails, build sand castles and lounge in the warmth of the sun.
If you’re not up for travel, why not stay at home and warm yourself with a jolly good Irish Coffee. It’s got so many things I love in one glass. Coffee, Irish Whiskey (I prefer Jameson) and whipped cream.
Irish Coffee not your cup of tea? Settle in with a cup of hot chocolate topped with real marshmallows. If you want to make it extra sweet, finish off the leftover peppermint bark, and don’t worry about those New Year Resolutions.
Have a fireplace? Pull on your woolen socks, cozy up to your love and enjoy the crackling of the logs, warm toes and a quiet evening.
Curling up in bed is a good thing when it’s bitterly cold out. It’s just you, your covers and hopefully a good book.
Now to get serious for a moment. No matter what you’re doing, please take care during these bitterly cold temperatures. Take every precaution when traveling, let your cold water drip overnight, make sure the vents are closed under the house, and bring in any pets. Dress in layers if you have to go out and make sure you have a fully charged mobile phone. Safety during this type of weather is of the utmost importance.
