The neck knows...

Whoa! Autumn has fallen with a thud! It's cold and windy and my neck is telling me it's time to dig out the turtlenecks and pack away the T-shirts.

I started wearing turtlenecks back in the 80's because of my chronic stiff neck in cold weather. This is not a good look for me with my short neck and stout stature. But, it's the only way I can stay limber in the head-turning department. I also do neck exercises to keep the noggin sitting comfortably on said stout stature.

I have frequented oodles of second-hand thrift stores over the years buying every color of turtleneck shirt. I cut the long sleeves off and then wear the shirt as a shell under under a variety of tops. I like to think of this as my "signature" look. Believe me, this is as fashion-conscious as I ever get.

The cool weather puts me in the mood to make a big pot of soup. Or, maybe do some baking...

So, farewell to a lovely summer.

I would go insane with a turtleneck anywhere near my long noodle neck. Even in the coldest weather, I can't wear anything "constricting." Not even a sock. I think my winter "signature look" is so much worse than yours: Dress, backless sandals or clogs, and a non-matching jacket over it all.

I do love a turtleneck. That and keeping my hair down for the winter.

I'm thinking a big pot of ham and bean soup is in order.

And when will the wind stop?!!

After reading, we did have beef stew for supper with fresh baked buttermilk biscuits. Saving the Apple crisp for Sunday !!
