Get out your ice skates!
Monday and Tuesday we had bitter cold temps around 4 degrees with wicked wind. The snow that came on Saturday and Sunday turned to ice and walking the dog was quite the challenge.
The bike trail we walk to Collins Cove Beach with our dog each day was an ice rink so Quan Yin was not happy that she had a mini walk.
After being away for 7 years it is taking time to get acclimated to cold weather. Remembering to wrap up, wear gloves and a hat takes some getting use to.
Keeping the house warm by adding curtains and plastic on the porch windows was something we did not have to do in Alexandria VA. Things like wrestling with frozen trash cans, shoveling, pouring salt on the stairs and wearing socks 24/7 bring back memories of past winters.
However, i am loving winter! Something magical about this time of year. It makes one appreciate spring when it arrives! I am so grateful that we are not in Alexandria VA right now during this horrid government shutdown. So many small businesses suffer along with most people who live there. My heart goes out to all those who are waiting for this to resolve.
Being shut in is giving me more time to work on my new line of jewelry. More eco-friendly paper clay, seashells and sea themed baubles.
