Unfortunately for me, there is no snow here yet! Zip. Zero. Nada. We had a false alarm earlier this month, but it melted away by the weekend.
However, it is chilly here, with most nights dipping down into the twenties and the chance of freezing rain always lingering about on the edge of the weather report. Lovely! So there are some things I just can’t live without at this time of the year:
–Hand cream. My hands get super dry and chapped and having a good hand cream in my bag at all times is a must.
–Lip balm. Dry, chapped lips are no match for Dr. Bronner’s Magic Naked Lip Balm.
–Hot cocoa, tea, and coffee. I have to have a hot drink on hand at all times! I love peppermint hot cocoa and green tea, and I just tried one of the eggnog lattes from Starbucks–not bad!
–Slipper boots. My adorable Muk Luks keep my tootsies toasty no matter what!
–A pile of good books. When the weather turns grey and nasty, all I want to do is snuggle down under a blanket with a cup of tea and a good book. Who’s with me?
–A knit scarf. I have one snuggly chenille scarf hand-knit by my Grandma that I wear constantly. It’s perfect for keeping away the winter chill and it’s long enough to loop around my face if I need to!
