I have a reversible winter coat. One side is for rainy weather. The other side looks like snow leopard fur. If I put the hood on, it comes down over my head and down to my chin. And when I wear the fur side, I look like Nanook of the North. With the mukluks I wouldn't be seen at all. But that coat is so warm. And yes, it is faux fur. I have been on the lookout for some fur mittens to match. I can throw it in the washer on gentle and air dry it in the dryer. It comes out back to its off white and soft and the spots really show up. You don't realize how dirty it is until you wash it. I swear the price tag was wrong. It cost only $60. And it fit me right off. At my height, finding a coat is almost impossible.

Is that dance anything like our rain dance?
Yes, but I'm hoping the temperature drops...

My new jacket is reversible and it Purple! Fuzzy on one side, smooth on the other. No hood. I have too many cute hats.

Nice sunny day that I got to spend inside. We got up to 82, just got back from our walk and now it's 63 and getting dark.

I have noticed that our night time temps have become down in the 60's. It is too early for that to be happening. An early Fall? No Indian Summer this year? We still have the rest of August and half of September to get through before the temps start to drop. Then Indian Summer happens sometime in October.
