I know this site is all about health, nutrition and wellness but…. Baby it's COLD here and I hope you will enjoy this rather lengthy blog.
As the day began I woke this morning to the beautiful
shining so I quickly pulled open the shades to bask in the sunshine! I turned to check the temps and
-15 below zero. YEP you are reading that correctly...
-15. Oh and then they like to factor in the lovely…”feels like” temperature which was a whopping
-41 below zero! Baby now THAT IS COLD!
But with the
so bright there’s no way…although all channels confirmed the temperature was correct. This is the worst in 2 decades and now we set a new record low or rather high - whatever / whichever
but either way…baby it’s down right COLD outside.
So of course all news channels are recommending everyone to stay in - DO NOT GO OUTSIDE. Ya right, like that’s going to stop ME, sorry but I've always been a kind of rebel inside.
Tell me not to do something and well, there you go - out I travel. Well first off I have to take my little pooch out. So on go her boots, but I nixed the jacket, as that’s more of a nuisance than anything. But had to put on her boots since I just heard a news report about how some of the salts being used can cause real issues to animals paws, not to mention the TEMPERATURE OF
-15 BELOW OUTSIDE!!! Come on now, if I’m all bundled up with boots why not her as well.
Awww isn’t she cute??? Although I may be a bit prejudice - ya think?
Oh and how she loves the snow, I was soo afraid every time she’d go barreling into the snow that out she’d come with a missing boot or two. Luckily I fasten them on tight enough as we both returned in with all our boots on!
Oh and remember from yesterday’s blog of LIVING IN A SNOW GLOBE…
Well today here’s a look at living in a FREEZER with the LIGHT ON
OK back to the rebel in me
… Just running the pooch out was not enough so I drove to my Father-in-laws to help him with some computer issues. Then offered to drive him to visit my Mother-in-law who is currently in re-hap from breaking her hip on December 11, 2013.
Oh but wait the "rebel" in me
gets even stronger. We return from visiting, stopped for dinner and notice I have a headlight out - drat’s!! So I drop my Father-in-law back home and plan to stop at the local mall - which is COMPLETELY CLOSED due to extreme weather conditions dah! WHAT??? You have got to be kidding. But…here’s a thought, all the stores may be closed but the MALL is still open.
An AAAAhhhh moment!! So I park the car, went inside and walked the inside parameter 4x’s for a total of 72 minutes. And YEP you guessed it - until my lovely SPAT (Spark People Activity Tracker) fully glowed!
- I’m now 6 for 6 and really getting crazy with this - ya think?? Who knows what this rebel in me will be up to tomorrow ---
