1 Below This Morning, My New Best Friend, Einstein Was Right


1 Below This Morning-
It's supposed to be in the upper 30's by mid next week. I am so ready! Much as I love the snow, the single digit mornings, and lots of inside recesses, stink! Our students are climbing the walls. It's so dry the inside of my nose bleeds a bit every time I blow it, ew. Poor sinus skin. The chickens have on their reptile heater disc in their upper condo, lots of extra treats, and water. They're not coming out much, but I can't blame them. I know they'll love it when everything warms up and melts. They're laying pretty well with the extra light on. I've been living in polar fleece, wool sweaters, ski mittens, fleece scarves, heavy coat, thick socks and snow clogs. Thick, icky, crusty ice all over parking lots, etc. make it slippery going in and out. Glad I have invested in good winter footwear! Good old prepping. Mine have lasted forever, had these for 10+ years or so-

                            

Warm, pretty  water proof and great traction! I got these women's Solomon's so long ago I don't remember, but man they sure last!



My New Best Friend-
I have been low on really warm, fuzzy tops since I lost weight this last year. I broke down and ordered one of these Fleece Lined Flannel Shirt  Expensive, but their stuff lasts for years! Ow, wow, it is so warm and soft! I could sleep it in. Washed and dried great! I'll call it Kelly....



Einstein Was Right-
Let's go out together and not talk. Einstein was right.

Hi there, Just found your blog and can't wait to read more. I love finding new blog friends in different parts of the US and learning what life is like somewhere completely different than my own little neck of the woods. Have already read of few of your earlier posts and as getting ready to make that crustless cranberry pie since like you, I've got some cranberries just waiting to be used!! I'll let you know how it comes out!

I love that quote! Thanks for sharing the info on the shirt too. It looks very warm and I love the colors on it too. It's getting chilly here today too. Stay warm.

I love your new friend, Kelly! :)
It really annoys me to be out somewhere and see people like in that last picture. Not good...
