Human Hibernation

Back when I was still teaching English to 7th graders, I always thought about assigning today's blogpost topic. That never happened, but I still think it would have produced some real "doozies" of compositions.

The weather we have had the last few weeks (extremely cold and now rainy) sort of put me in the hibernating feel. 

Our beagle awakens me before 7:00 am each day to go outside, and I wonder why he doesn't want to "sleep in" ( or "sleep out/uitslapen" as the Dutch say). 

What else is there to do, but hibernate?

(Note: Google Translate is not working!!! Maybe some human IS hibernating!!)

Well I seem to be doing a lot of cooking lately...and eating....maybe hibernating would be the more sensible alternative.

I am trying to stay out of the kitchen and the fridge. I bake something and freeze it as soon as it is cool enough. Makes me think twice before thawing out a cookie or brownie. Oh, well. ( Deep subject ;) Linda
