If it reached 10 degrees today where you live, count yourself blessed. It was 0 degrees with wind gusts here in northern Indiana at noon on Sunday, but who knows what the wind chill is registering? It's a cold that's intolerable and makes you feel like you just might die.
When I got home after church, my toes were so frozen they hurt. I finally had to get my feet into the bathtub to try to get the blood flowing.
There was no doubt I needed a change of wardrobe before heading out to the evening service. I decided to wear pants, and my husband loaned me his long underwear. Thank goodness they fit me! It made all the difference in the world. I guess I've been missing out on the toasty-ness. I had no idea. After singing the praises of the long underwear, he said maybe he would get me some for Christmas.
I was really hoping for some new gold earrings for Christmas, but the long underwear might actually be a fair tradeoff. Besides, if this insane arctic snap continues for very long, my earlobes will fall off, and I won't be able to wear the earrings anyway.
