The last sweet juxtaposition I enjoyed was in this box of chocolates from Chocolate Springs, over the mountain back in the Berkshires. Friends who know how much we loved Josh’s confections brought us this assortment when they came to visit during the holidays. You’ll notice the celebration for all seasons — check out the Christmas trees and the Jewish Stars of David in the bottom row!
We had lots of visitors and socializing and fun over the holidays, which is certainly A Good Thing. Since then, instead of sweet we’ve had BITTER, as in Bitter Cold, Biting Cold, and still more Bitter Cold. Snow — which we haven’t had so much of — at least would be pretty. There’s nothing pretty about this bitter bitter GRINDING cold, day after day.
Here’s what it’s like: Start at dawn with 1 degree Fahrenheit (minus 17 Celsius), maybe work up to 10 (minus 12 C) and drop back down at night to minus 6 Fahrenheit (minus 21 C). What’s going on here? It was 40 degrees Fahrenheit today in Alaska!!!!!
Frankly? I think Mother Nature is suffering from PMS and needs to get over it. Get with the program, Mom!
