Holy crap its cold. Its the wear a wool sweater over a few shirts, a pair of long johns underneath your pants, a scarf, gloves, a hat, thick socks, boots with lining and a big bomber jacket kinda of cold. Brrrrrr!!!!
Yesterday, I was out grabbing lunch, and made a detour to the bookstore. I’ve been reading books like a madwomen and was running out so I needed to replenish..no, really! So, anyways, it didn’t seem so cold, probably cause I was only in and out, but also because there wasn’t a breeze, so I couldn’t feel the nip as much.
When I got home and finished my lunch, I was restless, I needed some fresh air. Now, a normal person wouldn’t venture out on such a cold day for a walk, but apparently I am not a normal person and bundled myself up, plugged in the iPod and off I went. Well, 15 minutes into my walk, I couldn’t feel my cheeks, they had frozen. My feet were following close behind because again, not a normal person, my boots didn’t have a lining in them. So, I detoured into the mall to get some warmth, and buy some chapstick cause the lips were feeling a bit dry, and ventured back out to finish my walk. My usual 45 minute walk was reduced to just 30 minutes yesterday. I think I would have frozen if I hadn’t cut it short.
The forecast is saying it’ll be cold for a few more days. I won’t be going for a walk today or tomorrow cause I’ll be busy, but it won’t deter me from taking my walks in the future. Yeah, I froze my ass off, but it just means I’ll have to bundle up better. You can’t let a little cold weather stop you from doing stuff. Its like the obstacles you face in life, either you let them get you down, or you keep on trudging along. I’d rather keep on going, its the challenges you face in life that make you stronger. (how has a blog about the cold become so philosophical? LOL)
