Actually, de feet ain't as bad as de fingers! The circulation is not great in my 'extremities' - I love that word - it makes your hands and feet sound so..so..exotic. Ergo, this frigid weather wreaks havoc on fingers and toes when they have to clomp around in the snow and handle water, hay, latches, doors, etc. Gloves are strictly out, as my fingers turn to icicles within seconds. Mittens work well, but it's like working with packing crates at the end of your arms. So I keep looking for the perfect glove/mitten/hand thing-y. What do y'all wear on your "extremities" in frigid weather?
On an entirely different topic, my baking countdown is giving me the willies. I found myself wide awake at 3:30 this morning, going over my list(s). I've opted for sweet/savory treats this year, as opposed to baking a dozen different kinds of cookies. I find cookie-baking mind-numbing. I don't mind eating them, mind you, but baking them irritates me - all that shuffling around of baking sheets, spatula-ing off endless discs onto cooling trays, keeping them out of paws' way. I digress. I am on my fifth nut mix. It's fun! And healthier, if you watch the salt and butter. And use only dark chocolate...I am trying to make this a healthier Christmas while still keeping the treats a treat.
