Welcome to Vermont's below zero weather. Thank heavens I have a 'neck gaiter' that is advertised to be suitable for Vermont weather. Yes, it really, truly said that on the label.
And it's working well. I pull it up over my face, some days letting my nose stick out, but today keeping it over my nose as we walk from lecture hall to reading hall, to dinner, to more readings and discussions. Right now I'm cuddled in my LL Bean blanket in my room working at my laptop computer and sneaking a peek at my e-mail.
I have to say that the Readings done by the people who will Graduate this Wednesday are blowing me away. Watch out world. Another set of wonderful writers of children's books are flying from the nest.
