Time continues to fly. While I have transformed the house to reflect the Christmas season, my oven has been given a good workout trying out some gluten free recipes for a friend. Nearly each day I also made time to keep up with my walking routine. These days the walks are shorter mainly due to the extreme windchill we are experiencing. I can manage between 30 minutes to an hour but after that I need time wrapped in blankets sipping hot tea.
This morning the lake was bathed in glorious sunlight but by the time I was able to step outside the nasty wind had returned, the sun was hiding between grey clouds and it was snowing. Mind over matter prevailed and once bundled up in my down jacket I set out for my daily excursion on the ice.
This is how fast the scene changed – this was only 5 minutes into my walk!
A testament to how cold it is here and how quickly the ice layer increases when the temperature hovers around -20 C.
The swirling snow on the ice even looks like waves crashing onto a beach….
It’s time for some more tea. It is only -13 C outside but with the windchill I am not sure how cold it really is. I just know it is a good idea to head indoors when my face and jaw become numb.
Tooooooo cooooooold for me. Am walking inside at soccer centre now. Good luck to Colin tmorrow and am sure he will be much improved. We will think of you on Sat. And lift a glass in tribute. Murder mysterys are fun but we will do it again so you can join in. Have a happy holiday and if coming to town let us know and we will do an impro gathering. I bought the movie Florence Foster Jenkins (nutsy opera wannabe) Meryl Streep and we could have a movie nite, maybe for girls only. I am always full of ideas these days cause time is runnning fast.

Enjoy your indoor walls… it’s more than a half hour drive into town for an equivalent venue for me and I would sorely miss the ever changing natural surroundings! Stay well!
Frigid, but beautiful!
