I still wear an old Eagles starter coat that is ready for the trash, but it keeps me so warm. Not that I am an Eagles fan at all. Think I found it for my son and he never wore it so I started to. Now I won't get rid of it. Last time we went camping sparks got to one of the sleeves but as long as it keeps me warm I will be keeping it.
I love Maxine. I am learning to appreciate the comic as I get older.
my red coat I got for the polar bear trip - is puffy - and I really love it - it is so good for days when I have to go out and it is below freezing - but really wish it was in a dark color
I have a small down jacket which I just love. It is a little puffy and very light weight. But you can't get down wet or it is no good. So I try to be very careful about when and where I wear it. Also, sparks from a campfire can ruin an expensive down coat very quickly.
I have a cranberry colored coat that is fondly called the Playground coat. I used it for recess duty. It is at least two sizes too big so that it would fit over heavy sweaters and blazers. It has a big furry hood and lined with some kind of thermal fabric that keeps me toasty warm. The kids thought I looked like an Eskimo but I was warm and some of them were not. We have had 6 inches of snow this week with winds so high it was considered blizzard conditions. As I write this, it is snowing again with 3-6 inches predicted. More coming next week. That coat may come in handy again.
That is so true, funny but true.I cut my hair short, now I wear a scraf around my neck because I am very cold. My hair kept me warm, I didn't realize it.That was about a month ago.Everybody likes my hair.I have gotten so many compliments.I miss my long curls, but this is part of having a new look.My memory is so bad that after 2 months I will have to look at a picture to see what I looked like with long hair.I also have an old fashion hat very warm.I had alot of women ask me where I got my hat. I bought it at Kolhs.I have leg warmers my soninlaw had in his Shoe store he worked at.I got 2 pairs.They keep my legs warm.After all this it would be nice to have the energy to enjoy a winter day.
I only had one pair of long johns which I wore on Friday to camp. Saturday I pulled a second pair of sweats over my first layer. It worked out just fine and I really wasn't cold at all. My Uggs kept my feet pretty warm too so that wasn't a problem. I had the most layers on top with a turtleneck, sweatshirt, vest, hoodie, and coat. A regular hat would not stay on my head so when it was coldest I pulled on an orange hunting hat where your whole face is pretty much covered.
It's cold in the mornings and warm by the afternoon. I really don't care for winter as it make my bones ache and creak.
