Autumnal shades saw me through the whole first part of winter, actually--it was 40 degrees on Christmas day!!! Which is, like, unheard of up here in da nort' (dare I add a "yah, dere hey!"..?).
But I promise we're making up for it now. As I type, my phone tells me it is an exhilerating 3 DEGREES (which is spoiling me, because our forecasted high was 2 degrees), and it "feels like -13 degrees."
And, yes, many my wintertime posts will contain some sort of commentary on the weather (lol it IS the chief topic of conversation in these parts since we're all, you know, a little focused on trying to NOT DIE. We're "hardy." <--read as "absolutely insane" )
