2012 has been off to a very busy start. Between lots of business travel, starting classes, and a bout with a nasty cold, I did sneak in a bit of time for myself. While it has been a very mild winter this year the fact remains that I live in an older home. It comes with “character” I believe is the polite expression. Meaning it has with its age developed many quirks, one of which is that it stays relatively cool inside all year round.
To accommodate this charming character, I now have a growing collection of fleece vests. They add just the right extra amount of warmth. The challenge is they are not exactly cute. I do keep hoping that Timberland or The North Face will release a collection in pink… but am not holding my breath.
So I squeezed in a sewing project to add a pink fleece vest to my room wear options. Nothing fancy and there are many things I would change if I made a second one. But all-in-all it does its job nicely.
Looks like I have been over indulging in the cutesy, frilly stuff as of late. So with March approaching think I will dive a bit more into Life’s Essential #3 – Shelter. Seems appropriate to spend some time talking about Home Sweet Home as I always suffer from cabin fever in the last month of Winter. Time can drag on anxiously awaiting spring so let’s make good use of the time spent indoors.
