What I Wore: Silly Shovelling

This week, I am on March Break. And when you are Rosie, March Break means sleeping in late, reading by the fire, occasionally getting up to make my siblings soya dogs, and wearing a lot of knit sweaters.

Sweater, knit by my mummy; jeans, Old Navy; scarf, a gift; hat, Gap; mittens, knit by my mummy.

Today it snowed, and since I am a kind and helpful daughter (who would like her stupid new bedtime removed) I went out to shovel the driveway.

Shovelling isn't fun if you don't wear as many knits as possible, with gigantic winter boots.

And you obviously have to take lots and lots of photos, to reinforce in the elderly neighbours minds that you are completely crazy.

After my last post, where I was wearing wedge sandals and a dress out in the snow, a lot of you commented that I must have been cold. I'll admit that I wasn't exactly warm, but it was around 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit), with practically no wind, and I was only out for about five minutes. So, slightly chilly feet, but nothing my down filled slippers couldn't fix in a few minutes.

Thoughts? Requests?

Love, Rosie

  3. thanks for the thyroid suggestion Rosie, but I doubt it is that. This past summer I had some hormone issues and they believed I had Polycystic ovary syndrome at one point (cysts in the ovaries resulting in too much testosterone and therefore some of the same thyroid issues) but I did the full range of blood work and my levels are normal...therefore I just must be going nuts haha

  5. awthwaeithao SHEEEEEEEP! (wow, unintelligent comment of the day) I love it. I wouldn't know what it feels like to be a helpful daughter, my parents are constantly telling me that I need to be more involved. My parents have no control over my bedtime. There is a great time difference between when they THINK I go to bed and when I actually go to bed.
