Right? It’s Wednesday today. After this past week I think I lost track of the days. I’ve been a bit (well, probably a completely committed) couch potato over the last week or so.
All things considered, I’ve looked more like this – under a blanket on the couch. Usually with 2 large cats sitting on me.
We’ve been having winter here. Real winter with overcast days and cold nights. The house and I both stay cold. It’s the humidity. I say this so when I tell you the temperature you won’t think I’m a complete sissy - - Low: 40 degs; High: 55 degs; Humidity: 78% Wind: 10 mph; Feels like: colder than the low. Inside! Outside feels like a lot colder than the low. That’s winter enough (it doesn’t need to get any colder please).
When I wake up in the morning, I tend to lay in bed a few minutes and think about what I need/want/will/should do that day. This morning I decided I would break the couch potato pattern and start the morning with a 1.5 mile brisk walk.
I’m a morning person. If I’m going to accomplish something that takes movement and energy, I’ll do it in the morning. Otherwise – not getting done. I looked out this morning and saw a lovely sunrise. I could see the sun breaking through the clouds. Oh yes! Walk it is.
Like most of us I have a morning routine – feed the demon duo, open the blinds, wind clocks, etc. By the time I was dressed for walking and out the door, the sky looked like this.
Ugh. Still, I was determined to walk. I mean, I have a coat and scarf and gloves (somewhere). It's the thing I dislike about winter - you have to put on so much to stay warm(ish). I figure I should get extra points for 1. struggling into the necessary outside accruements and 2. for the extra weight I'll be carrying wearing all those things. I got in a whole ½ mile in before saying – ok, that’s it, I’m cold.
