I wore a lot of clothes today. The rest of the country may be caught in the latest Snow-torious storm, but where I live it just got cold. REALLY COLD. Today’s high was -5, but the wind made it feel like -14. I wasn’t quite ready to end the reign of No-Pants Katie, so I decided to layer like it was going out of style (three dresses, baby!).
The slightly ragamuffin result reminds me of The Little Match Girl, but (hopefully) my encounter with the cold will end a bit better.
It was still unbelievably cold, but the layers helped. A little.
Why yes, those are Canada mittens I’m wearing, complete with giant applique maple leaves. I prefer my patriotism in the form of novelty clothing items. I may or may not also have underpants with a giant Canadian flag on the bum.*
Feeling shamed that so many of you are still taking outdoor photos in the snow, I decided to stop being such a wuss and brave it sans jacket. Note, however, that the stylish mittens stayed on.
I finally got so cold I started jumping between shots to stay warm. Timing? Not my strong suit.
In other good news worth of balcony jumping, the disease I was diagnosed with in the fall that’s supposed to be permanent may, in fact, be getting better! It’s early yet, but my fingers are crossed. What wasn’t so great is that when the doctor called me, I was in a meeting and my cell phone was in my bra (loooong story). Awkward…
So in celebration, and a feeble attempt to remember what it was like to be warm:
*I don’t :( But now you know what to get me for Christmas!
