A walk in the woods, a cure for what ails ya!

I wanted to do something a little special for the blog on Christmas, but I didn’t get a chance to do it, so I might do it on New Year’s Day instead.  What I ended up doing on Christmas Day was going for a walk at one of my favorite places on earth, the wilderness trails at Point au Roche State Park.

I was feeling kind of blue and certainly stretched thin because of the holiday season, so I gave myself the gift of time spent in nature.

Peak a boo! Oh, I guess this could count as an outfit post, so here are the details: knitted cat hat-gift from my sister, grey Cashmink scarf-outlet sale, vintage zippered ski sweater and burgundy Henley shirt-thrifted, olive convertible pants-yard sale, long underwear (not visible)- retail, and hiking boots-inherited from a former co-worker.

I have been asked many times why I haven’t moved from upstate New York to larger cities. I think the proof is in the photos.

I love taking photos of weeds in winter.

Tracks in the snow and my shadow.

These photos were taken around 2:30-3:00 and the temperature was around 19 degrees.  Brrrrr!

We are supposed to get a lot of snow over the next day or so.  It’s is terribly cold outside but I braved the elements to take some outfit shots.  I am making odd faces in these shots, but that’s because it’s 17 degrees outside.

This is the very red coat that I bought a few weeks ago.  I have always wanted a very red coat and this wonderful wool coat was only $5 at the Salvation Army!

Here’s what’s under the coat:

Outfits details:  grey slouchy hat-consignment shop, grey Casmink scarf-outlet sale, grey and black striped turtleneck-thrifted, grey skirt, wool stripey knee socks, tights, and Sanitas-retail.

Keep warm, North Country friends!  I plan on braving the storm with a few beers and some snacks tonight. Be safe!
