It's the middle of November and so far we have been lucky with mild temperatures. This weekend our luck is supposed to change as more seasonal temperatures are expected to roll into the area. The dropping thermometer means it is time to pull out the flannel sheets and light up the wood stove. I know I will feel differently in February, but right now I'm excited about the colder weather.
In addition to digging
out sweaters and cuddly pajamas, it is time to organize my tube sock
collection. When it is frigid outside, I can be found by the fireplace
with a slipper on my foot and a tube sock on my limb. If I don't keep my
limb covered, it becomes cold to the point of being painful. Keeping it
covered with a large tube sock helps, but when it is extremely cold I
have to pull out the hand warmers.
I now buy hand warmers by the
case and use them liberally during the winter. I found that throwing one
in the bottom of my socket will keep my limb warm and cozy throughout
the day. At night I'll activate another hand warmer and put it between
two layers of socks on my limb. It is important to note that I never put
the hand warmer directly on my skin. Instead, my limb is always
buffered by either my liner or a tube sock.
delivered another case of hand warmers, so I am officially ready for
winter. Bring on the snow days, the crisp air and the cold and quiet
nights. I'm ready to hibernate for awhile.
