Baby it's cold outside!




It is cold. Very cold. Well, very cold for Vancouver. It's supposed to be -19 tomorrow. That's MINUS NINETEEN CELSIUS! Hold crap that is frigid. That is why we live in Vancouver, because it's very rare for it to get that cold. We don't have proper clothes (or tires, snow plows or the constitution!) for this weather. It's very inconvenient. Having said all that, I do kind of like it just a little bit. It's so beautiful when it's coming down. Everything looks different, there's a certain quiet that you only get when it's snowing. It's like it muffles the everyday street noise or something. (It could also be that there is no street noise when it snows because Vancouverites can't drive in the snow, so we just stay home).
We are dog sitting my sister's dog Puck, who is the sweetest girl dog I know. She is such a cuddler! Henry likes to sidle up to you on the couch, whereas Puck likes to plop down right on top of you. She is half Cairn Terrier and half Cocker Spaniel, a strange mix that strangely works....
These are our holiday lights on the patio. That is my absolute favourite thing about Christmas is the lights. They fill me with a unequivocal joy!

-19C! NO WAY! Dude, that IS cold! It never gets that cold here in southern Norway. Well, at least it hasn't been that cold since I moved here two years ago. -10 is as low as it's gone this month. Wow. Bundle up and buy some really good Irish whiskey. :-) What does Henry think about the cold? BTW, his little coat is the cutest thing ever. Doesn't he get jealous of another dog in the house?

Does Bailey's count? I have 3 bottles of that on the go! ha ha! Henry puts up with another dog in the house, but no, he's not too happy about it! They had a couple of Tasmanian Devil fights that I had to break up, but otherwise weren't too bad...
