A Blustery Day!


That's how I am feeling right about now!

I worked OUTSIDE today...8 hours, in the VERY suddenly cold weather!

The photo shows how I felt! It might not have been so bad if the wind had not been so blustery! My fingers and nose were like ice cubes all day.

I really did dress for the weather! I was sitting in a ticket booth at The Pumpkin Patch. I wore two pairs of socks, a thermal shirt under my t-shirt, under my heavy corduroy coat. I had gloves also... but they were more like hand covers because the fingers are out of the gloves. I wore that kind because I had to take money and count out tickets all day which would have been very difficult with my fingers actually in gloves.

But, apparently I actually need even more layers to be out in the cold ALL day. I can't even remember the last time I was in that cold of weather for such an extended period of time.

Hopefully I will be better prepared if it is that cold again next Saturday.
I have had a very difficult time getting warmed back up. A hot bath, a hot bowl of potato soup, and flannel pjs later, I am finally starting to thaw. If only Corey hadn't just opened the front door right beside me and let another gust of cold air innnnnnnnnn....

Double Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Brrrr! We've been dealing with unseasonably cold weather too. Unless it's just that my memory is fading and what is really happening is the past years have been unseasonably warm. :) Ah well!
Lovely blog, I see you have LPM on your blogroll too! Nice to meet another "Siesta"!

It got cool down here too. Which is really unusual, as far south as we are.
I love the cold weather, but the wind does make it rough. Hope it is a little warmer for you next weekend!
