It's about to get cold here! Not Idaho or Canada cold, but cold. Now, you have to realize that as our name implies, we are southern. Cold to us is below 60 and really cold is 40 or less. Remember this picture of mom in her parka in New York? 

See how Miss Kathy is in a jacket? And Miss Christy and mom are bundled up? It was in the 60's that day. The native (Miss Kathy) was dressed normally. It was the southerners who were freezing!

Anyway, it's going to be cold this next week for us. And you readers in the north may not know this, but heat pumps don't produce heat when it gets in the 20's. That means our heater upstairs just doesn't work. When it gets really bad, we drag out the air mattress and sleep downstairs where the furnace runs on gas.

We plan to spend the week doing a lot of snuggling in our pugjamas and playing with our friends Lilo and Stitch! They are coming to visit with us for a few days. Hopefully, two extra pugs will help keep everyone warm upstairs. Otherwise, five pugs and three cats plus one human probably won't sleep well on a twin air mattress. Cue the grumpy human!

Hope your week is warm and snuggly!


  1. Well our mom must be a southerner at heart, she hates anything below 40 and this week it will be in the teens, ugh! Stay warm

  3. Boy we would give anything to have those temperatures!! We actually put in a heat pump last year along with a new electric furnace. It as an auto thermostat when the temp gets below 30 it switches to the furnace. Needless to say the heat pump hasn't run for a while.
    Keep warm!

  7. Stay warm, ladies! I don't know why my dad decided Chicago would be a good place to move to - it was 0 degrees when I went out for my walk this morning. I didn't even know it could go that low!!! I was born in Los Angeles - I used to think 40 was cold, too. Time to think warm thoughts!


  8. Pugwatts (silly M&S)! Anyway, as you know we are right with you in the fight to stay warm. Brr and more Brr!

  9. We have to admit we are freezing at 50 degrees. BOL you guys all look so cute

  10. We would love to see temps like that!!! We actually put in a heat pump last year along with a new electric furnace. They put a thermostat on the heat pump so when it gets below 30 it auto kicks to the furnace. Needless to say the heat pump has not run for awhile now.
    Stay warm!!

  14. It's been cold here in Nashville. I've been freezing my puggin' butt off. My humom was really happy on Friday because it snowed and she didn't have to go into school to teach her little crazies.
