Temps abruptly fell into the 30's, 20's and 40's here. I'd forgotten how much I hate scraping windshields! (Law says you can't leave a car running and unoccupied to warm it up before you get in.)

Luckily, no snow or ice on the roads. First thing in the morning, there's some frost but that's about it. We're waiting for the next nice day to go out and cut or pull frost killed plants although I'm not excited about going out even to work!

I have to admit I DO like it when frost paints the windows, but it happens so seldom now that homes are better insulated. I did buy some of that frost-making liquid some time back and you just dab some on and it goes crazy making beautiful frost patterns!

I caught a cold so I'm trying to keep snuggy warm.....with the exception of the air in the bedroom. I like the bed nice and warm and the air icy so I sleep with the window open and fans going and lots of warm blankets on the bed! It's that reluctance to throw back the covers and expose the rest of me to cold that's a challenge!

OMG...I almost forgot to turn on the heat in the studio! All that paint and glue and stuff shouldn't freeze so it's a good thing I finally thought about that!!!

Frost-making liquid? Must.get.some. Where do you find such a thing? I love taking pictures of frost, but like you said, I'm usually limited to the car windows.

One of my favorite memories is sleeping at the cottage in late fall or early spring. You'd get into bed and the sheets were freezing, and then you'd wake up all snuggly and warm except your nose was like ice and sometimes you could even see your breath. It was hard to get into bed and even harder to get up, but I loved it.
