No Trip To The Prefab Net Zero Home... Again. But wait... what day is it?

School is canceled. Again.
It has begun snowing, AGAIN, clearly because my children wore their pajamas inside out last night... Dag it, that trick WORKS. They now have their noses pressed to the window, chanting,
"Don't stop, snow! Don't stop, snow!"
And the snow is responding strongly to their encouragement.
*sob*

So no, no visit to the off grid net zero energy prefab house kit this weekend.
Yes, I am miserable.
I would *really* like to see my supposedly existing interior walls!
I would *really* like to sleep in the bedroom spaces, now that they are REAL ROOMS!
I want to feel the spaces about me, to sleep in a different room each night just to see what it's like.
(I was beginning to think they were Imaginary Walls, just like our Imaginary Chickens...)
But it's days like this that...

VINTAGE! HAT! FRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
was invented!

Bring it.

Copeland: Red Revolt!
Today is National Wear Red day, and I am wearing red to fight heart disease.

The Dress: I had no idea it was a mystery to wear, much less that it was without a zipper, until I put it on. SO, although I felt a bit unfair using it against Amy when the vintage dress is from Amy, because this dress is so screwed up (I still don't think I have it on right) I am certain I have no advantage.

The Ring: On my 25th birthday I bought this for myself in Finland. It is by a famous craftsman. I did not write down his name. I was too focused on proving to myself I would never want to be married and resolved to never fall in love and this was a symbol of a Gal Who Only Earns Her Own Way And Buys Herself Her Own Jewelry And Needn't Ever Rely On ANYONE. Yeah, yeah... Handsome Husband sure screwed that up...

The Coat: My Handsome Husband-That-Wasn't-Supposed-To-Happen found this vintage coat from Finland (note: I adore Finland. File that under "Subject To Avoid Bringing Up" unless you want me to go on, and on, and on...) in a local thrift store and gave it to me as a gift.

The Hat: A happy purchase from Bygone's annual Get Rid Of Stuff sale! I think it was $2. I love it.

The Boots: Well, if you're going to have a proper Revolution, you need a good sturdy pair of boots, and these are just the trick: my awesome riding boots, ready for the slushy snowy fight!

REVOLT AGAINST THE SNOW!!!!!!!!!! Vote for meeeeeee!
(Please note: if you vote for me that you need to also comment, "Wow what a great photographer!" as a certain out-of-school 7 year old took those blurry pictures..)

[Amy is telecommuting from Fredericksburg. She sends this in:]



Amy: Be vewy, vewy quiet. I am huntin' snowflakes.

An authentic coonskin cap paired with some completely inappropriate camo, given the current weather conditions. But vote for me, cause clearly Hell has frozen over as I'm wearing camo and holding a rifle... (that *is* a rifle, right?) Oh, and apparently the rifle is *also* vintage. So sayeth my sources.

Oh, and the wicked awesome pair of snow boots? Those ARE mine. I bought them at goodwill for $4 back in November, Just. In. Case.

Happy Snow Day :)

[Copeland's note: That IS something I never ever thought I'd see sweet Amy be holding! Much less wearing camo!  Ironically I almost used one of my handguns as a prop but didn't go the Dr. Zhivago route I originally planned! Geez... I think I might have to vote for her!]

Amy, as always, looks very cute, and I've been a "gun nut" for as long as I can remember (which at 65 is either a long time or the result of age and memory), BUT, I have had the very good fortune to have had the love of two beautiful Finnish women in my past, and that trumps everything else. My vote goes to Copeland!

Kudos to both, Amy for the unexpected (!) and Copeland for the harmony in the composition - and I vote for Copeland this week!

I'm a sucker for a red head and the red hat is so cool - but gosh darn it - the coon and camo make the day (plus i don't feel like getting pelted) /sarc

Outdoorswoman takes it today!
