Checking back in
For those sweeties who asked me to let them know how my expedition to the market and out into the Arctic cold went :
It warmed up to 16 .. I was tempted to throw off one of my scarves, but changed my mind.
2 pairs of socks and warm boots, my toes are still frozen.
1 pair of leather gloves with cashmere lining ( last year present from my husband) and my hands did not suffer at all. Warm as toast... which makes me wonder - how are cashmere socks ?
I wore a coat that is too big on me and has sat in a closet for years because it was never cold enough to wear it ... I didn't care if it was too big, I was warm in it ! And if you get bored sitting at a traffic light, it is good to pet . . soft ...soft ......
The roads are clear and dry and the sun is shining .
The drive through the countryside to the market was lovely and coming home I saw that a couple of neighbors nearby have deer in their yards.
My yard just has birds in it at the moment, the deer come along early early in the mornings....
Now to snuggle down in a corner of the sofa where the sun is shining in from the big front window and start a good book ..
