Wow, fall sure is here in the Pacific Northwet...or is that We've been having cold nights and cool, sunny days so the leaf color has been exceptionally nice, but the rains set in yesterday so it's time to keep the wood stove stoked and bundle up. When it gets damp and cold I always have on warm, snuggly pants of some kind and at least 2 layers on top. Always a lighter shirt and some sort of sweater, sweatshirt or vest over it to keep warm I have one shirt that is my favorite!! And when it's in the wash I'm as bad as Linus when his blanket is in the This shirt happens to be one of hubby's shirts that he rarely wore, probably because of the color. It's a chamois, long sleeve and it's cream color. And I can bury myself in it and feel wonderfully warm and cozy.

Do you have a favorite item of clothing? Something that just makes you feel cozy and warm inside as well as out?

My flannel pj's! Especially the ones with the leopard print (meow!), mostly because they are the thickest flannel, and especially great when put on just out of the dryer on a cold winter night! Speaking of cold winter nights, our high for the day was in the mid-40's, which is our normal low temp for this time of the year! Higher elevations have a winter storm watch for tomorrow night! Yikes! It's not even Halloween!

We don't get much weather in sunny, Southern California.  I do like a nice pair of slippers.  I got a really nice pair from my best friend, Rhondab.  My feet actually don't feel hot and cold anymore.  When I touch them however, I can feel that they are cold, then I get out those slippers.  It is a nice feeling to have them on.  Other than my slippers, a big sweatshirt is about all we ever need here.    Someday I want to live where there is a bit more weather.

Sweats in general :-), although I do have some favorite sweatshirts! I love, love, love comfy stuff. You should see my bed. I have waaaaay too many blankets and pillows.

The high all week is only about 40 here as well. They're talking possible snow showers today, tomorrow, and Saturday. And the heat isn't on in my dorm yet...Brrrr!

Guess what I'm wearing today? Sweats! It's definitely a sweats sort of day.

Although I don't know as I have any real favorite cloths to wear when it is cold. In the fall I do get out my Bib overalls, and I also get out my cordorroy ( how ever you spell it the material with lines and grooves in it and I like the finer grooves)  pants and shirts! They are soft and warm and look nice too! Anyway I like cord pants and shirts for causal dress, and the bibs for just around the house stuff!

My old Navy Camo pants (not Old Navy the store) and my camo sweatshirt in the fall/winter. I feel like I am hiding, which is what I really want to do sometimes. Just get away. I know it sounds stupid, but that's me. I use to be much more outgoing, but CP has really changed me for the worse. I wish I was the old me! As you can tell I haven't let go of what I use to be able to do. Now I just watch my daughter, and hurt. even chasing her around hurts. Now do you get why I like to feel like I'm hiding? Don't get me wrong. I know I sound like I am down in the dumps, but I'm not. I'm on the high end of my mood cycle. With the rain and cold weather I'll hurt more, and that will get me down. But I'm trying to stay as happy as I can! Ha Ha He He Ho Ho! See, I am happy.
