it is -12

Here is the cold I was wishing for.
And there was some snow yesterday, but it didn't amount to anything, dramatic though it was.

He made snow angels in the dirt and 1/4 inch of snow minutes after this...

To combat the cold, on the way to the Monday morning x-ray, I am wearing:
leggings, leg warmers, Uggs
corduroy skirt
haramaki
turtleneck
woolen vest
pashmina
arm warmers

I am definitely considering the Remote Start feature on my next car.

Good luck with the x-ray!

I want a haramaki.

Not that I need it, since it's going to be in the 70s here (again) today.

Er, but you probably don't want to know that.

You see, you are someone who I know would just look so elegant in the blinding freezing cold.

While I would be standing there resembling something between a blimp and a failed blamange.

And again I say, I dream of living in such temperatures. Dream.of.it.

as is it bad that just the mention of a remote start feature in a car makes me want it immediately?

Oh, my! Is that celcius, or is your son just extremely stalwart about the cold?!
You're in layers and he's wearing a sweatshirt?
paola said…

It sounds like an excellent day for soup - stay warm!

I bet you look like a puffy bird out in the cold!
Remote start--that would be heaven. My car HATED me this morning when I went out to warm it up before driving anywhere.

So - is haramaki an ear muff or a fetching red pinny? I'm not familiar with cold weather gear.

Yesterday I was wearing a t-shirt, a thermal underwear shirt, a heavy hoodie sweatshirt, leggings, heavy sweatpants, wool socks, and boots.

In the house.

Outside it was -25 F°. (Actually, that's what I wore outside, too, but only between house and car.)
I have never seen a boy look so cute in a dress - er...Haramaki.

You totally need to come down here and hang out with Badger and I on our porches in the sun. SEVENTY-FIVE baby. You're in the WRONG STATE!
BB - ugg boots in public? I thought we'd spoken about that!
