Spring... 77 days away on the calendar
Thursday, January 02, 2014
Not in the mood to be serious or discuss nutrition, goals or anything except...
Well, does't EVERYone like to talk about the weather when it's weathering outdoors?!?
There is a reason that I decided to be born on GroundHog Day, and that reason is right outside my window right now! Brr it is so... JANUARY outside! Subzero temps (including the double-digit windchill) and this ridiculous "Hercules" snow storm have me thinking about... spring, summer, flowers, robins and hummingbirds, walking barefoot on a soft lawn, strolling outdoors in a light gauze dress..... Or maybe a fast flight to Maui? Oh. That's right. There aren't any planes going out... Good thing I'm a creative daydreamer!
I marked my calendar starting at the day before March 20th (day one of Spring) and number backwards so that every day until March 20th I know how close "Spring" is coming. Why? Well, because I'm eager to slip into a nicer season. Of course, the joke is that spring up here arrives at least 4-6 weeks AFTER the official first day! So on the first day of Spring I'll be counting days until June 15th... which seems to be about when I feel confident winter is gone each year.
Tomorrow's cardio will be clearing off the car... It's a light snow, so it should be easy except for that windchill factor.
Hope all my friends are staying warm in their cold places and cool where it's summer!
