Days 6 and 7 - Winter Warm Ups

Here in the eastern part of Pennsylvania we are having a cold winter. High temperatures have been lucky to reach freezing and many days it feels even colder thanks to the wind.

Anyone who knows me well knows that I'm not a fan of cold weather. So when it's cold like this I need something to keep me warm.

If I am outside for a walk around the neighborhood I'm wearing my hat and mittens. I don't care how silly I look - just ask my walking partners! (Truthfully I'm surprised they will be seen with me. Maybe they are hoping that the cold weather is keeping everyone else inside.)

Once I get back home, the teapot comes in handy for making warm, yummy drinks. Okay, so sometimes I use the microwave instead, but that would be much less interesting to sketch!

a microwave can be interesting to sketch, all the different buttons to draw.

can never be too overdressed in this weather, ok maybe you could if you couldn't move. but better warm then seen as silly :)

But Jennifer, a microwave is just a large box. And the buttons on mine aren't that interesting. But I'm with you on dressing for comfort over fashion!
