You know winter has been too cold and is feeling too long when you get excited when it is warm enough to go for a walk without your snow pants on! (That was last Saturday. It’s been bitter cold ever since!) Most mornings when we head out for our walk at 6:30 I feel like Ralphie from A Christmas Story bundled up with my snow pants, two sweaters, down coat with my hood pulled over my wool hat and my double thick mittens. The cold makes my eyes water and the tears freeze on my cheeks but I’m determined to get a bit of fresh air and exercise each day so we go anyway.
Dear spring . . .I know you are coming.
