Last year for winter, we got three blizzards. This year we're getting 20-degree weather. It's days like this I'm thankful for my cozy perch in my warm bed in the window. I prefer to watch other freezing their butts off in the cold than to be out in it myself.
However, The Animator's Wife has to go out in it. She's not much of a "hat" person either, so to combat the chill nipping at her ears, she created this piece of lovely.
