nanook of the north

Yeah, so, I don't know about where you are, but where I am it is suddenly FRIGID. And the temperature is steadily dropping with every waking minute.

That said, I am pretty proud of the five minutes (a generous estimate) I spent snapping these sunny shots this afternoon:

To be quite clear on how veryvery soul-crushingly cold it is on this day, in the five minutes that I stood coatless&brave against the icy air, my coffee went from piping hot to chilled-to-the-core.

Just call me Nanook.

In weather like this I really should be wearing fur bloomers and a sealskin coat. Instead, I stand around in really inappropriate clothing and feebly attempt to warm myself from the inside out (which only works as long as coffee stays hot). Tonight I will take inner warmth to a new level as I stuff myself with spicy samosas and hothot curry and warm, sweet Darjeeling tea! Can't wait, can't wait (I'm in love with Indian food)!


  1. Although you were freezing, you got some amazing wintry shots! I always love the sunshine during winter! Makes the snow look so pretty!

  2. Wow, you girl are so brave to go in the cold snow for picture! I think I will have to get some courage and do the same too! You look amazing!
