Our Governor called off school for the entire state of Minnesota this coming Monday due to the projected low low temps; can you say cold!? -50 wind chills-YIKES! Most who know me know I'm a huge advocate for the safety of animals. I'm 100% against abuse, neglect and torturing of any type of animal-this actually includes farm animals! I'm not going to get into the debate of which animals should or shouldn't have shelter, blankets, etc, but I will say that no animal deserves to suffer, in any way, shape, or form. Bring your pets inside or provide them with shelter-please-you'll feel much better about your choice to do so, trust me!
Moving on, because of these frigid temps, I've decided to fire up the oven & do some baking today! Banana bread for sure, a huge batch of banana bread, remember this post? Yeah-that's why I'm making a huge batch-excitement isn't even the word for it.
My 12 year old is requesting his usual chocolate chip cookies, but I think I need to venture down the oat trail too, you know, with oatmeal scotchies! YUM!
So, on this cold blustery day, at least for the upper half of the Nation, what are you doing?
