Oh no, lambikins, I wasn't calling you a winter bum (another reason I hate winter - the size of my bum increases exponentially with the decrease in temperature ). In fact, your downtime amounts to what I consider to be an insane amount of time as required of me by my bosses. It's just that I would really like to spent my winters baking and knitting and painting and sleeping until the sun actually comes up. It just seems like a more natural and healthy way to live - come oooonnnn, retirement.
And thanks for the booties . My feet are feeling more comfortable already.
