Your busy August social schedule is interrupted by an arctic slap of cool wind. The mercury plummets.
The TV weatherman (alternately goofy and grave) warns that you may have cool nights for days.
A blue-green crackle from a driftwood fire.
Two unexploded bottles of cider retrieved from the root cellar.
You can hear each other think again.
Victorian Nightgown (No. 4003), found in London, a charming (and undemanding) alternative to today’s heavy-breathing intimate wear. Pure cotton cambric with lacy crocheted ruffles at collar, cuffs, and down jabot-like front. Four hidden buttons. Lots of tiny gathers at shoulders.
Even if you don’t happen to get snowed in, I’m sure you can think of some other excuse.
