Icy Cold


Yes, it was cold today, as promised.  I went out to my Zumba class and I came home.  The roads were dry and bare, the air was crisp.  It actually seemed comfortable as I walked to and from my car to the school where the exercise class is held but I didn't linger to see how long it would take for it to be not so pleasant. 

As it happens, I've been craving potato chips and chocolate ever since I got home, wishing I had picked something up on the way home, although I could hardly justify stopping for junk food as I drove home from working out, could I?  Nor could I justify getting in my car to drive across the street to the store to get them later in the day and I certainly didn't want to make the walk when it's this cold outside.  On the up side, the cold weather seems to be helping me stay on track when it comes to watching my spending and eating habits!

Here's how the trees I can see from my window looked this morning, basking in the pale winter sun.  I like the way the sun makes the icy crust on the snow shimmer and the way the shadows of the trees and the footprints of those who have forged a path through the snow show up in the light.
