Cold walk along the frozen shores

This Saturday morning was freezing out, but sunny with no wind. Perfect for a nice, long dog walk.

Lingering effects of endless distractions

The Weather Network on TV is having so! much! fun! with all of our weather woes here in North America at the moment. It’s quite amusing to sit on my couch with my coffee and watch them explain, over and over again, what to do and not to do because of the dangerous wind chills, and the snow, and the ice, and all the rest of it.

A trip down memory lane during the Polar Vortex

Today you get two posts in one day. There is a reason for this: I am the MASTER of procrastination. Add your name to my list if you, too, want to learn how, I’ll send you a book. 🙄

Once, when I was in my 20s, a girl from my Toronto office and another one from the Montreal office went down to San Antonio for a business trip/training session.

It was January, I believe. We dressed warm to leave the house and trekked to the airport with bulky luggage where we endured de-icing delays before finally flying off to sunny Texas.

After we checked in to our hotel, we went to walk around the grounds. The sun was out, it was warm, and we didn’t have to spend twenty minutes getting dressed in layers.

There was an outdoor pool that looked quite inviting. So we went back in, changed into bathing suits, and sat on the deck chairs enjoying the late afternoon warmth.

Two other girls from our company came by and introduced themselves. They were from an office in Florida.

Both were dressed in long pants, long shirts, and light jackets.

“It’s chilly today,” they said. “Aren’t you ladies cold in your swim wear?”

Ha.

Texans and Floridians didn’t understand how a trio from Canada can sit pool side in the 22° C degree weather (71 °F).

lol

This little historical anecdote popped into my head as I sit here sheltering myself from the onslaught of the so-called Polar Vortex. Everyone and their grandmother is All Up In Arms about the Polar Vortex.

Sigh.

Mother Nature’s fury

I was going to write a post about a household challenge when I saw pictures of the Florida panhandle and it’s catastrophic damages.

My household challenge is nothing but fluff. It doesn’t even register anymore now that I turned on CNN for a minute.

My heart goes out to you, Florida, and everyone else who is affected directly or indirectly by the fury that is Mother Nature.

Stay safe.

Crappy Monday morning? A little luxury will save the day…

Stress and anxiety were my first emotions of the day today. The tone of what happened last night stayed with me and carried into Monday.

Not a good way to start a busy week. (Had to do with fortnite, don’t even ask…)
