Gloves

YOU look warm in the coat, but WHERE ARE YOUR GLOVES?
I would really have to dig to find a pic of me in my coat!!

I have mittens like these, and they make my hands SWEAT.

I believe they're rabbit fur/hide.

Mine are white with pink beading. My mom got them for me in honor of my Great Grandpa who was the chief of a local Native Reserve here.

I DO wear really warm gloves, DH took these pics before I got the dogs collars & leashes on which I can't do with my gloves on

Wow, you look wonderful! We live just a little north of you and our winter dog walking clothes are terrible! Old hand me down coats from my Dad with a different color pocket sewn on in an emergency when the original pocket ripped off, 40 year old faded ski pants, mismatched mittensÖ

If it wasnít for Cody being groomed to a perfection, Iím sure people would think, ďLook at those poor homeless people and their dog.Ē

That's what I look like in the summer walking the dogs, so you're not alone! And here's a secret, under that coat I"M WEARING MY PJ TOP but I do wear clean undies in case I get run over or something (mama drilled that into my head)

Looks like Heidi Klum has some competition for winter apparel.

Joyce you look like you're ready for some serious winter walking there. The dogs look like they're not quite sure it's you or not.

It was a toasty 15 degree's out this AM. This is how we like to start and finish our morning walks...as close to the fireplace as possible!

Wally (soxOZ) posted it was what looked like 112 degree's down under...think I'd rather have the snow and a nice warm fireplace.

Yep Pete I'll take the cold any day over the heat! I love walking when it's cold out, we walk along the lakes and it's beauty wherever your eyes land. I love how quite it is, all you hear is the wild life.

The dogs know it's me in that coat but Ky always wants to kill it I think I paid like $20. for that coat over 15 yrs ago, it's walked a lot of dogs in the winter.

You both look cozy in front of that fire

Those are beautiful and look really warm. What a nice way to remember your Great Grandpa.

I do have a heavy coat I throw on but sitting in front of that fire place for the picture I'm afraid I'd be sweating. And taking the picture outside with a tripod and everything was just more than I wanted to deal with.

It really is quite and as you say the only sounds you hear are the wildlife...I can live with that.

Ky's probably jealous of the fur coat and can't figure out why it gets to be closer to you than she does.
