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!
