After a week of balmy above zero (as high as 10 C! 50 F) temps, we are headed (at least temporarily) back into the deep freeze.
As my post for yesterday said, the old North Wind was bringing some weather. today wasn't too bad a lightly falling snow , not a lot of wind , but as the day went on the temps did begin to fall came in tonight and the wind was picking up in a big way! the temp is expected to fall to -26 C (-14 F)
So how to stay warm? Well the obvious choice is stay inside curled up in flannel jammies with a couple warm fuzzy dogs by the wood stove.Yup that does sound like the best option, however there are critters to feed here and things to do , that have to happen outside .
I have a terrible time with hats, my head is just oddly shaped I guess, I can wear a ball cap just fine ,but tend to look like a female "Hoss Cartwright" from Big Valley, in a cowboy hat , and in cold weather my toque tends to pop right off my pointed little head ! So I bought a crochet hat a while back , and it seems to work well, but gets wet easily with the falling snow .at least it stays on .

So before I went out today I looked at my options . Found my Granddad's old Harris Tweed cap. Somewhere in the world there is a photo of a 3 yr old me riding a toy duck wearing a hat just like this!
anyhow it is a lined wool cap, so I though I would give it a try. Warmest hat EVER! doesn't cover my ears well, so I just put on a headband with it and viola! perfection! Actually got a little too warm today but I will be fine tomorrow! dry warm, and well, kinda stylish!
Found a neat little tool on Piccassa for photo editing called "soften " I like it makes my laugh lines look much happier !
Best part is, it warms my head and my heart !
so that , with my good old Carharrt , my woollies, and good boots, I should just about make it !
Stay safe and warm my friends
