Let me slip into something a little more comfortable

We are going to have the worst winter here. I can tell already. Barely three weeks into Autumn and it hasn't stopped raining or gotten into the 50's the last three days.

Did you hear that, God? Autumn. You know, that season between the miserable highs of summer and the miserable lows of winter? That time when all you want to do is sit outdoors around a camp fire and a light jacket will suffice to keep out the slight chill? When the leaves turn colors and remain on trees long enough to be oohed and aahed over?

Um, yeah. I think You skipped that part.

The house has been freezing for days and I finally wore down convinced Nate to let me turn on the heat. Granted, he'll only let me put it at 68, but at least I can huddle around the heating vents in an effort to keep my limbs from going numb.

I've also busted out the slipper collection this weekend. This is half of it. No lie - these are just the ones that I keep downstairs. When I say I have a 'thing for shoes', that might be a bit of an understatement.


My plans for this weekend? Putting the electric blanket on the bed and liberating my winter wardrobe from it's hibernation in one of the guest room closets. I absolutely love to switch out my wardrobe in the spring and fall. I get so excited as I take each piece out of the storage boxes. I always find stuff I totally forgot I had and new things I bought at the tail end of the season and haven't even worn yet. It's like Christmas all day long and it doesn't cost a dime!

What are your plans for the weekend?

I love your slipper collection!

Hopefully this weekend I'm going to swap over to my winter clothes too. I saw SNOW tonight in MA. UGH!!!! Apparently He missed fall in the Northeast too...

Hmm, I realized that my comment could be taken the wrong way. I was talking about winter coming early and being annoying- not you being cold! =]

I agree, where did autumn go? I would greatly appreciate if the nice fall weather came back, especially when I am walking to class!

no kidding. we had to turn our heat on weeks ago because of our little one...otherwise, I would be in the same boat as you -- my husband (in years past) would rather run a space heater in one room than make the whole house toasty. Luckily, now our baby gets her way and momma's happy. :)

Yes, I've already gotten out my fuzzy pants. Weekend plan? Park it on the sofa in my fuzzy pants and watch football :)
