Heated gloves

My fingers get so cold when working outside that I purchased these heated gloves from Amazon.  There is a place in the cuff to put batteries which will heat the fingers.   I was so happy with them for about an hour as they actually were warm.   After an hour, the batteries died.   I really need gloves that will keep my fingers warm for longer than that so will do more research.  But while they worked, they were wonderful.   Today I cleaned stalls for more than 2 hours and it is important to have warm fingers.  Otherwise, they hurt too much when I come in.

No, I didn’t do any craft today, just relaxed after the barn chores and the lunch – oh, and had some company.

We went to Paneras for our 55th anniversary lunch.   Interestingly enough, the area where we sat had 7 tables, 5 with people at them.   There were mix ups in the meals of 3 of the tables.    Eventually everyone did get what they ordered.  Does that mean the caliber of people being hired has gone down?

What did we discuss at lunch?   Why of course, the ups and downs, the left and right turns and in the end we are glad we stayed the course.   The roller coaster ride has been interesting.

    My brother had batter pack gloves when he was delivering newspapers in that cold, snowy, wintry weather that Ohio was known for back in the 60s. I don’t remember how the battery pack charged up; but, it lasted long enough for him to get his entire route delivered. I don’t think they make gloves like that anymore.

    Here in central WA, our winters can be brutal. Cold with temps in the teens or 20s. If we’re lucky, it can warm up to 35 degrees. Lately, though, for much of January, we have had temps in the 40s. It’s kind of weird; but, not really uncommon.

    If you do find gloves or socks that keep warm for longer periods of time, be sure to post. I have been looking.

  2. Happy 55th anniversary! It probably happened when I wasn’t looking….
    I was hoping those gloves would perform a little longer than that! I’ve also been delivering newspapers this past winter – and the temps have dropped to -25°(C) / -13°(F) – I had high hopes that you’d found something to save my fingers… Guess I’ll have to wait for you to find something better!
    Have a blessed Sabbath!
