Baby its cold outside!

Good Friday Morning!


It is another frosty morning in Muskoka -33 degrees F!!!  That’s before the windchill has been factored in which then makes it around -40 something!!  School buses were cancelled once already this week due to the extreme cold.  Daughter #2 is in the middle of exams and luckily wrote her Science exam yesterday and has today off because… I’m thinking buses may be cancelled again today.  (which they were not)

We have had Bentley with us this week, which means not too many blog posts.  When Bentley is visiting I need to put the cats food up on the dining room table where I have my laptop, the cats love to torment him from up high which upsets Scampie which in turn upsets Sims which means I don’t get much peace and quiet.

This morning is unusually quiet so I’ve been able to post what I think is a fantastic recipe for a Hot Obama!!

“I created the Hot Obama cocktail at JoeDoe to satisfy the hot toddy drinkers during the wintertime. It’s hot (temperature), tart, and a little sweet, and is the perfect start to a meal at JoeDoe. The dust of cinnamon gives it a little spice.  And the name, well, whether Obama is ‘hot’ or ‘not’ to you right now, you’ll still like the drink.”

Recipe courtesy of JoeDoe, New York, NY. Created by Jill Schulster.


  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) English harbour rum
  • 1 ounce(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 3 ounce(s) hot apple cider
  • 1 ounce(s) hot water
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon

Mix together all ingredients. Grate fresh cinnamon over top. Garnish with cinnamon stick. Serve in a heat-resistant glass mug.

I will be taking some time out on Sunday to respond to some fantastic comments you guys have made and catching up on all my blog reading!!!

Have a wonderful weekend

  1. While you have been freezing, we have been having a spell of warm weather here, but it’s supposed to drop down to -18 degrees shortly. Glad Bentley gets all your extra time, he probably needs it!

    • Good morning, it has warmed up its only -10ish this morning, much nicer!! I love having Bentley here, I of course spend my days with him at work and really do love having him stay over, actually a little sad he’s leaving tonight 😦 What my boss fails to see is that Bentley is really my dog he just pays the bills 😀 😀 😀 LoL!
