Let it NO!

A little song for you today. Well, more like a take off (I think that means "stolen") on a song. Because I've been played. By Mother Nature. Yet again. 

We've had little snow so far this winter, then we had day after day of weather in the 50s. And I believed, silly me, that we'd dodged a bullet this year, bone chilling wind wise and snow accumulation wise. What happens when you start to get comfortable? You get kicked in the ass, of course.

Welcome back, whipping winds. That's OK, I didn't want to breathe anyway. Hello, snow and ice. I just love stepping outdoors and slipping down the entire driveway and out into the street.

And don't even get me started on the window that the workers replacing the siding on my house broke and is still on order . . .

The last thing, I mean the last thing I need is to turn on the radio to Frank Sinatra singing Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! 

So I present to you my own version. Sung (by you, not me, btw) to the tune of the original (actual) song, but with more feeling (and possibly a few sobs).

Well the weather outside is frightful,
shopping sure would've been insightful.
Got no milk, no bread, no dough,
Let it NO! Let it NO! Let it NO!

And it shows no signs of easin',
Mother Nature, you must be teasin',
shoveled snow in my face you blow,
Let it NO! Let it NO! Let it NO!

Well the weather is downright spiteful,
but Irish Cream is so delightful,
in my cookies and cup of joe,
Let it NO! Let it NO! Let it NO!

Irish Cream Coffee Cookies will remind you of those winter mornings when you sit down with a cup of coffee with a shot of Irish Cream. | Recipe developed by www.BakingInATornado.com | #recipe #cookies

Irish Cream Coffee Cookies

Now my soul is slowly dyin',
Mother Nature, you've got me cryin'.
This winter weather has got to go,
Let it NO! Let it NO! Let it NO!

When we finally say goodnight,
no electricity, pee by moonlight.
Sleep while dressed from head to toe,
Let it NO! Let it NO! Let it NO!

Hope your weather's better than mine. If not, feel free to sing my song. Oh, and bake my cookies. The cookies help. Pinky swear.
