Girl make fire. ugh.
So it's cold here. For me.
Funny thing. We went for a walk the other day and I'm wearing my alpaca socks, layers of merino wool, a raincoat, a wool cap and my alpaca fingerless gloves. It's chilly and you never know when it will rain.
So what's funny, you ask? Well... many Kiwis pass us on our walk wearing shorts, a long sleeve shirt, maybe a light jacket. And they are all looking at me like I'm nuts, with a small smile on their face, and I know what they're thinking: "ex-pat". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expatriate
So maybe my huge roaring fire and my Arctic gear are a little much for Spring in NZ. But this Cali girl is cold! Yes, formerly East Coast, but don't forget many young years spent in Miami, FL.
Signing off, in layers of wool.
Peace & love & warmth,
