4 more sleeps until the coveted winter vacation! Today Mother Nature has warmed it up a bit while still delivering a blow! By evening we are expected to receive 20 to 30 cm of snow. The worst snow of the season. This means one has to pull on the high waterproof boots to trudge through the snow. As a person who has (in the past) shunned winter this is never a good thing. This winter I have chosen to embrace the season. I bought myself a warm Helly Hansen coat, even warmer Columbia boots and the greatest sheepskin hat & mitts a girl could want to own (purchased at a great little store called Quichua on Sparks Street – click here) . Dressed to the insulated 9’s I strike out on a daily basis to do my daily errands. Today amidst the the downfall I will hit the seamstress to get an article of clothing taken in before the Friday trip, stop by the Health Food Store to pick up some Bee Propolis to try to ward off the cold symptoms I arose with, pick up a few groceries and mail off a letter to the UK. This ‘walking’ trip all possible because we had the good sense to move downtown in November…LOVE IT!
