Acclimating

We have been back in South Dakota for just over a year.

Last winter, when we first got here, I wore long john's under my jeans every day. I wore two or three pairs of socks. And I was still achy-cold in my bones.

This year, I find a fleece jacket can be worn almost all the time. This week with temperatures down below zero I have had to wear a real coat (and hat and mittens and scarf.) But just one pair of socks.

Yesterday the temperature stayed at around -3 degrees all day. It was really cold! This morning I headed out to take the kids to school and it felt warm. The temperature gage in my car said 12 degrees. It's funny how 12 degrees can feel nice! I am planning to go running outside a little later today...

I think I must be acclimated!

I'm glad your toes are warmer. I have to wear socks to bed each night/only to wake up with too hot feet.

I feel like since you are still getting snow you should be able to post some inside pictures of your house... just a thought!
love you!

Wendy! This is so random, but I was just talking about you the other day because Sei and I were talking about going to Hawaii...
I haven't read blogs in forever and couldn't find links to the ones I used to read...
Wow- back in South Dakota. And still running. Awesome. Glad to see you're doing great. :)
