paying the price

Tuesday while taking photos for the shop I decadently turned the heat in the house up to 70 degrees. Which is pretty sweltering when we usually keep it at 65 during the day and 55 at night. But I was tired of being cold changing my shirt tons of times while shooting a bin of blouses. It was so wonderful! I don't think our heat has even been on that high for the entire day. And so, yesterday I had to pay the price and keep the heat very low and seriously bundle up. I did get out of the house and went thrifting with my friend Amy (you can read her blog at Gulping Beauty), which didn't help keep me warm as it is less than 20 degrees outside. I heard a bird chirping and it sounded like a spring bird and I had a flash of spring in my mind. However I am not lamenting winter yet, I still long to hole up in a rustic cabin up north and have vowed that I will in the coming month!

Why am I so into these SOCKS?!? I think I'm on a sock binge for SURE! Probably because in Phoenix this may be the only time the temp. goes under 70 degrees! :)
