Mid-morning I'll be heading out to do my bi-weekly grocery run. I run errands on this day too, preferring to not make many trips out during the week, unless necessary. I like to save my trips out for fun, but I digress.
Today we are having extremely cold temps made worse by the wind chill.
It's supposed to be a wind chill of -25 today. Right now it is 1 degree.
We need food so I am heading out and braving the elements.
I am going to be bundled and I thought I'd talk about what I am going to wear.
I am going to wear my down jacket from Land's End. It's a bit old and I use it when I go out to feed horses because the hay doesn't stick to it. But it's my warmest jacket and it fits well again now that I have lost almost 40 pounds. I look like the Michelin Man in it since it's puffy, but it's warm, so I'm wearing it. I am going to have a sweater on as well, and leggings under my pants, warm socks with my fur lined boots, and gloves and a hat of course. Maybe a scarf, as well. The hat will be a cute one because once it's on, it stays on, even if my head gets hot. My hair is very fine, and gets really static-y, clinging to my head in the most unattractive ways, when I take my hat off.
Today I'll be going to Costco, Target, Miller's Natural Foods, Leroy Miller's for milk, Christmas Tree Shoppes (great place for tea, shampoo and Quest Bars). I may run into Aldi's as well.
One thing is certain. I don't have to worry about any frozen items defrosting today!
I'll leave you with this sweet photo.
Nate drops Kamryn off in the mornings and she often is still sleepy, and goes back to sleep for a while on the couch. She's a precious girlie, I'm happy she's here with us during the days.
Stay warm everyone and have an excellent day!
