layers upon layers
The warm sunny Autumn days always fool me into thinking that the warmth will stay past sundown. Which results in not packing adequate cold weather clothing for our weekends at the woodland retreat. So I resort to grabbing bits of this and that to layer up. Last Saturday when the temps dropped to near freezing I put on two cowls because the brown while close to my neck wasn't long enough and the blue alone would not keep me warm. I threw on several layers of clothes and built up the fire as big as I could with lots of oak. The good thing about spending chilly nights out in the woods is that my body acclimates to hardier levels. This is the best way to ease into the cold of winter.
