We need to get an IL (or Chicagoland) group together again. That photo was taken before I was diagnosed and found BCO, but I do recognize Lago (Lauren).
How's everyone coping with the early deep freeze? We had a dusting of snow overnight (yesterday made it into the 50s, probably something we won't see again for months). Only stuck on cars & grass, and most of it evaporated before sunset tonight. After a brief (weak) warmup this weekend, it's gonna get worse. Last night walked to a Portuguese wine dinner in the neighborhood, wearing my new faux-fur-trimmed hooded loden car coat, with a muffler over a suede jacket & a t-shirt. Not toasty-warm but comfy enough to keep the hood down and no gloves. Came out 3 hrs later, and the cold cut through like a knife--the mist that began during dinner had started to freeze. Hood up, muffler tied tight over the top snap, Thinsulate-lined leather gloves barely cutting it. Time next week to dig out the puffer jacket or maybe even the old shearling hooded coat which is 2 sizes too big now. (Might either move the buttons or have the tailor around the corner make it a toggle coat). Not to mention the shearling mittens.
