So funny!! It's cold here too but I'm loving how the snow reflects the sunshine all over the inside of my house! Don't you? Stay warm and have good day!

We can count on the sun shining brightly when it is this cold out!!
I'll take what I can get!

Love this, thanks for the chuckle. I'm with you, sun is sun, so what if it's -10, at least it's sun! And, it still brings warmth, amazing.
