It's been fa-reeeezing here for the past two weeks or so. The wind chill gets to about -40 and stays there. The ambient temperature isn't "too" cold, maybe -20 to -10ish.
But it's still cold. I had to pull out my warmer down jacket.
Because I don't have a parky. But everyone else in my family does. Well, I guess technically I do have one, from my aana Katak, but I rarely use it, only to travel with because it's pretty big. Maybe what I'm saying is I don't have a parky made by me.
But EVERYONE else does. (PS there's two more being "fixed" so they're not hanging up!)
and now, even Rea has one! I made this cute little parky with some trim and stretch velvet I got as a gift from a friend who was recently in Korea. He plopped a big bag of trim, velvet and silky material at my friends house and said, "have fun!" I also used a fox isilgvik (hood trim) one of my friends gave me because it was too small for her daughter. Perfect.
That's how finnskimo's battle the cold.
Well, that and sauna's!
