Walk In Winter

Monday, February 24, 2014

I stopped by a local park on my way home today. It's staring to get colder, but it was nice to see other walkers. I did about 20 minutes around the frozen pond.

It was a lot warmer this past week, and I noticed I wasn't as depressed. I'm concerned about the upcoming polar vortex, though. After the holidays I think we're all just ready for spring.

Time to renew my apartment lease and, as I expected, it's going up by $25. My goal is to own my home within the next 3 years. Getting tired of paying rent.

I hope everything is well with all of you!

    Was your walk on Saturday? I had such a GLORIOUS time walking 'round the entire Otsiningo on that day of STUPENDOUS weather! Can't wait for MORE! :-)

    We're back in the below zero temps again. Only got a skiff of snow so that's something. The joys of home ownership are not all they are cracked up to be...no landlord to call when things go wrong and you are responsible for all the work!! Sometimes I think renting might have been a better option...and those taxes just go up year after year!!

    Good for you for walking! It looks cold,but very pretty. We have had a unusually warm winter. Hardly any snow which will be a problem come summer. Good luck with your plan of owning your own home. It really is so much better to have your own home.

    The last lease I signed the rent went up $75 dollars a month! The thing is with the amenities here and location it was worth it though. With this winter snow I am glad my apartment complex cleared our roads and walk ways, so I did not have to shovel all that white stuff. I am looking forward to the Spring when our pool opens up!

    Good for you for getting out there! And best of luck on your three year plan. (I rented for a long time, so I know that feeling.)

    Spring has already sprung where I live, and that is just very, very odd. We haven't seen snow since new year, and now even the ground is thawing. This has been a strange winter..

    We've had nicer weather the past week as well, and it really does make a difference to my outlook and body rhythms. Hope your new cold spell is short!
