Walking in the snow

Saturday, November 24, 2012

I did get in a short walk with the dog this morning before I left for Buffalo, then walked him again this evening. It was snowing both times. This evening it was blowing these hard little pellets of snow right in our faces, but we persevered and did another 2.7 miles anyways. I probably should have made Cooper wear his coat, but he seems to prefer shivering to wearing any of the sweaters or jackets I have for the silly pooch.

The drive up to Buffalo was blessedly uneventful. A little Lake Effect sleet and snow about halfway there, but other than that it was clear. I got a little lost on my way back home again, but managed to just unwind the wrong turn I took and got back on track. I am definitely counting today as a rest day though, as I walked less than 4 miles.

When I got back to town I managed to go to the grocery store, the library and the Farmer's Market and still make it back to my parents' house in time to help make lunch. I bought a loaf of really good homemade bread at the Market, that we had with homemade butter and organic orange marmalade. It made a nice finish to the meal. Of course it was an earlier than normal morning for me, so I will probably fall asleep early tonight. I could use a good night's sleep. In fact I might even sleep in a little tomorrow. It depends on what Cooper's bladder is telling him. When the dog has got to pee I got to take him out... no matter what!

    I was in NYC/NJ yesterday and there were snow flurries, but that's it. We made it back to MA last night. Today felt like snow but nothing. I love the snow and look forward to it.

    i am dreading the winter so much, but i guess where you live its more normal weather.
here in eastern ky, we have been getting our first taste of winter...back around halloween, was my first time to walk in the slushy cold with drizzling rain falling.
so i went shopping, got some thicker socks, some long underwear and gloves, boggan and headband...i am ready, but still dreading it.
good luck to you....

    At least today no snow for us. Not even much wind, but still chilly. Maggie doesn't like to wear her coats either.

The reception was very nice. Informal and relaxed. Decorated with some antiques from my mom's house and kind of vintage cottage look. Lots of wedding photos. Fun thing was the Photo Room. Guests got to have their photos taken with different hats and such. Fun way to remember the guests at the reception. Had a yummy slice of cheesecake. My mom was so glad she was able to go and see everyone. Her old neighbors was so happy she was able to come with us.

    Gosh I remember those days of living in the northeast! It is a great workout though, I remember that too. Congrats to you on keeping your fitness going and "plowing" ahead through the snow! Stay warm!

    It's been a long time since I've lived 'up nawth' and I guess I wouldn't know what to do in snow!
