When the first weekend in March brings us temperatures close to 0 and several more inches in snow, I decide that I can handle the situation in two ways:
1. Start wearing t-shirts and sneakers, with the expectation that dressing so hopefully will bring warmer weather.
2. Give in to peer pressure, or, in this case, icy cold winds, and don't leave the house unless dressed in a snowsuit.
Obviously, for now I've chosen sanity, though there's no guarantee that I will continue such reasonable behavior if this snow refuses to melt. I'm still feeling that no matter how many layers I put on, I can't get warm. I might be forced to take drastic action. After all, the stores are already selling flip-flops.
In contrast to flip-flops, in the photos above, taken yesterday, I'm wearing:
A tank top
1 pair of gloves
1 pair of mittens
Yes, the snow is gorgeous. However, although I've lived here for years and I do know that March does not actually signal the coming of Spring...I can't help but wish it did.
I will survive. I'll be patient. I'll stay indoors and embroider to keep my fingers from freezing. But I miss my pretty clothes. In spite of the fact that I'm a blogger, and bloggers love refashions, there's not really any way I can think of to make a 20 year old pair of coveralls look both pretty and functional. And, in the case of 9 degrees...I have to choose function.
How are you handling the chilly weather?
