I look out my window in central Ohio and it's snowing. Feels soothing and comforting.... what a good feeling to have - contented and smiling.....

 

What is the weather like in your neck of the woods and how that it make you feel?

We received a few inches of snow a week ago but the weather changed back to usually temperate days so its gone.  Its chilly but sunny today and will be in the 60's by weekend I read.  No more snow in the near forecast.

Would you two quite swearing. that is a bad word. I could say I hate snow. but that would be wrong, I just hate the cold that comes with it.

 

I would enjoy sitting by the fire. A real fire with wood that you have to start yourself.  with a nice snow coming down. as long as I don't have to go out in it.

 

I need to find a place were the weather is between 55-80 year round.

It's cold and damp. The sort of weather that makes me glad to have a blanket and a cat in my lap.

I like snow if you can cross-country ski on it.  However, the white crap that falls from the sky here seldom qualifies.  It's not that there isn't enough of it.  It is that the snow is wet, sticky stuff.  I'd even put up with the cold if it meant we could have nice dry mountain snow.  But it is always humid here.  Oh, well, I suspect my skiing days are over.

 

It has actually been a warmish fall.  It is 7 degrees C today.  Windy, though.  We had a storm yesterday, with lots of rain and high winds.  The remnant of one of those Greek-letter tropical cyclones, I think.  It is still a bit windy now.  But then, it always is here.  Our house is 1 km from the shore of the Bay of Fundy.

 

I have done everything in my power to prevent snow this year.  I brought out the snow shovels and stationed them at the front and back doors.  I put the roof rake in the woodshed, ready to prevent ice dams on the skylights.  I fired up the snowblower to make sure it starts okay.  And I put the winter tires on the car.  If that doesn't work, I don't know what will.

Well @KymmieL it stopped snowing and didn't stick so I guess I will just go in my studio and write a song.....

It snowed hear Monday night. This brings to mind winters at home up north. One of my favorite things was sitting in my living room with a fire in my stove (which had a glass window in the door), listening to some beautiful quiet music, and watching the snow falling in the forest behind my house. It made the forest feel enchanted!

 

Lots of love,

Pretty much cold, wet and now we get frosts overnight, so my summer bedding is starting to blacken and will soon need pulling out and adding to the compost heap. Trouble is, it's COLD and WET and it's 'Orrible!

Cold. Wet. Winter weather advisory. My spouse is driving home from farther North today because her father... her ninety-year old blind, deaf, and barely ambulatory father... insists on living in the middle of the woods, alone.

I plan to spend as much of the day as possible wrapped up under a blanket with one or more cats.

 

Hugs!

It's just cold and over cast here today. Guess it'll be another day in pj's. I need the snow to hold off for another month. Aside from our move I have to repair/replace the fence around our new yard. Anyone know if there's a prayer to the Goddess for this?

I generally just ask the Spider Goddess with sincerity and love in my heart. She's very patient. You need to do the hand gestures though.

@ElizabethStar  My wife is a weather witch I will ask her. How do I know she is a weather witch? There was a huge storm coming our way when we married on December 12th and she had the storm go around us and it hit south and North of us.

Pretty much overcast and a bit cool - 59°F.  I guess that's something like 15° for the rest of the world.

I'm keeping a smoldering fire in the heater, just to keep the chill off.

 

I was raised in upstate NY, so I like to see a snow, maybe once a year - as long as it melts quickly.  I've lived in the south over 50 years now and am thoroughly spoiled.

It is another overcast day with some rain and about 41F. We have had the heat on for a bit now, so it is helping. I am kind of looking forward to snow in some ways coming up, probably because I don't have to drive to work this winter.

Amen to tele-jobs - easier to be yourself and smile and wear your jammy's

@Shay Can't say in the jammy's all day per the therapist, that is a mood driven behavior that leads to worsening depression for me. However, yes, I can dress and be self expressive all I want with the remote job, as I don't even have to be on video.

      My first wig was a Raquel Welch synthetic wig and I have had it 12 years and it has held up very well but I do take proper care of it. It wasn't cheap and I bought it from a well established wig shop that has been in business since the early 60s. I have several human hair wigs and they were not super expensive and I actually got two for one at that shop.They are going on 8 years old now and look fantastic. If you have no experience with wigs don't assume anything and get experience using the one you have before saying one is better than the other (human /synthetic) because they both have their advantages. Watch some you tube videos on how to care for wigs that way you can reference them when you need help. When you are done wearing it and before you put it back on the stand comb all the tangles out starting at the ends working up to the part.Don't just wad it up and throw it back in the box. One thing to remember take good care of your wig and it will last a long time.

      Synthetic wigs of good quality can actually last quite a long time.  While you want to use care, they are not that fragile.  I have some that are several years old, although I do not wear mine daily since I do have hair, albeit very fine.  Synthetic wigs have a locked in style and combing / brushing while COMPLETELY DRY will get them styled fairly easily.  Woolite is OK, but regular human hair shampoo works fine.  Dry the wig by putting a PLASTIC coat hanger gently through the wefting strands and hanging it on your shower curtain rod until it is completely dry at a temperature that you can live in (not too warm, like over a heater) and not a super dry place.  When it is dry, hold it from the neck edge of the wig, and brush it from the ends of the fiber up to the wig cap.  When you reach the wig cap / wefting, take it by the forehead of the wig and shake it out and brush it from the ends to cap again, put it on a foam wig head, and then gently brush it back into style.  You do not have to use a wig spray unless it is really wild, but even there, better is using a Static Guard spray on your brush like you do on your clothing (Synthetic wig fiber is the same stuff they make good clothing from).  Store the wig on a Styrofoam head with a dry paper bag over it to keep it from getting dusty.  A little brush touch-up when you put it on will finish the job.    Do not worry about the wig fibers working loose, since most have about 40% too much fiber in them and will look good with less, professional wig stylists will often thin them out to improve the look of it.  Do take the wig to a stylist if you do not buy it in a store and have them cut it to your face to look its best on YOU.  They can also give you other tips on care and feeding of your new pet --- errrrr---hair do.    It will take a bit of getting used to the length when sitting down.  Before getting too comfortable against the back of the chair, roll your shoulders forward, tip your head forward to check your dress hem, and in that position sink back into the back of the chair.  (My hair is shoulder blade length, and I have to do it too.) If you do not do that you can have wigs coming off.   Cheap human hair wigs are cheap, although you can do styling on them for practice.  Good human hair wigs are pricey in the almost $1K or more range, and if you can afford one of them, you can also afford to take them to a professional stylist to care for them.  Wig stylists are some of the most accepting people I have ever met.  There are salons that are for Medical Use wigs that have strict private appointments available, and the ones I know agree that we have a medical need for our wigs, just as much as a cancer victim or Alopecia patient.   A few years ago, I posted a series of pictures on wig placement for best presentation in here:   https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/gallery/album/1573-wigging-out/   The proposed hair looks great, enjoy it.

      Hi Sarah,   I CAN ASSURE YOU that you are not alone! I am twice your age and felt the same thing all my life. It made me feel all alone also. I've always wished I had a switch where I could switch back and forth at will. I have at least come to the conclusion I am gender fluid. That came after many conversations on forums. I think you will find many here you can relate with.   Hugs, Mike

      Point. We're all a little different. For example, I didn't experience ED while on T-blockers (I had about the same T-levels as I do now for a year prior to GCS). I enjoyed not having random erections, but I had no trouble during intimate encounters with my spouse. Others have reported some pretty severe ED.   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Egad, by the dripping fangs of the Spider Goddess I'm sorry you have to deal with that. So yeah, your folks are transphobic. That's pretty classic transphobic behavior right there. Sometimes people can get past it when a family member comes out as trans but their behavior is telling. They won't use the correct pronouns or preferred name for your sib. They talk about NB people like they're just "confused" instead of a legitimate group.   Unfortunately, there's not much you can do for another three years (at least). You could come out to them, but there's no guarantee they'd behave any better with you than they do with your sib. The unfortunate truth is that sometimes, your parents won't understand and nothing can make them understand. Then your choice becomes trying to love them anyway or cutting them out of your life.   Hugs!

      I guess that would depend on what you're going for and how HRT helps you out in the first place. HRT is going to make your fat re-distribution more feminine. It will, however, take up to ten years or so to finish the process.   I've seen some youtubers who did things like the Brazillian Butt Lift, which is basically scooping extra fat out of your middle and squirting it into your butt. The results looked pretty good, but I'm personally picky about what people are allowed to cut off of me.    Personally, I'm building my own waist and butt with exercise. While more work, it's less painful (well, when you do it right, I've pulled things in my chest doing yoga) and better for your health overall.   That said, I'm subscribed to a plastic surgery feed about lipo and boob jobs. As a less invasive alternative to lipo, you might consider laser liposuction. It reduces fat while avoiding the part where they cut you open and scoop things out.  The downside being that you need to keep the weight off yourself because the fat cells can re-inflate if you, say, go on an Oreo bender. I did a course of laser lipo in 2018 when I started on my weight-loss journey because I knew if I didn't start to see SOME results I'd give up.   Hugs!
