Old man Winter
Monday, December 31, 2012
I am not a cold weather person and when Winter comes I become a different person. I sleep and eat more and my moods represent the long dark days. I had to do something about this season called Winter.
Last year I made peace with old man Winter. I decided to embrace the cold and snow by getting xc skis. Well old man Winter developed dementia and we had a record warm winter. I went bicycling more then cx skiing, but the couple of times I used my skis I fell in love with this sport.
This year on Dec. 20th, old man Winter came howling in. He dump 19 inches of snow. I said "welcome I have been waiting for you" and others have said "ugh". I wanted to spend more time outdoors playing in this wonderful cold snow, so I bought a pair of snowshoes. Oh pure joy, love snowshoeing.
Now when old man Winter comes to visit I say "Welcome".
Happy New year Everyone!!!!
