This is the scene I woke up to last Saturday morning. Big, fat, fluffy snowflakes. On October 10th. I went back to bed.
I am not a fan of winter. Usually I get cold in late October and stay that way until the first of May. This year the cold has set in early. It feels like we went directly from summer right into winter. Way too early for hibernation.
I've had to take extreme measures to combat the unseasonably chilly temperatures in the house to stretch the household heating budget over what could be a very long winter heating season. What drastic step have I taken to stay warm while keeping the thermostat down?
I bought a 'Snuggie'™ . That's right. A Snuggie™. One of those blankets with sleeves you see advertised on TV this time of year. The item that looks really lame and you swear you'll never resort to buying or using.
As I said, desperate times call for desperate measures.
And how do I like my new blue Snuggie™? I LOVE it! I can wrap up in it and have my arms covered, but still have my hands free to use the laptop, sip my tea, and use the remote and all while keeping toasty warm.
If I could only find a solution for my chronically cold nose I’d be set.
Working today at the World Food Prize Ceremony so I’ll catch you all later!
Hope the weather is better where you are!
