Day 887... cold

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Half the fun of Winter is griping about it. I am ready to have some fun. LOL! It was cold and snowy today. Whiteout conditions and sub zero windchills. Even I was feeling the pain by the end of our morning walk. My poor Cooper dog was set on vibrate he was shivering so hard.

Got a call from the doctor's office today, and I have to go in again tomorrow for more blood work. Fasting, of course. I will go after I walk Cooper, and take something to eat, so I can go for a walk after without feeling so hungry I bail on it and just go home to eat. That is assuming the cold doesn't convince me to wimp out. It is supposed to be even colder tomorrow than it was today. Ugh!

I am getting used to doing most things basically one handed, but the can opener is still a conundrum. And my boots I just leave on all day so I don't have to tie the laces more than once. Like I said yesterday... it could be worse.

Now if the weather would just warm up. I checked the extended forecast though, and March looks like it will be pretty chilly here.

    Brrrr! I too was ranting about the weather although nothing compared to what you are going through. DH was looking ahead on the weather forecast to cheer me up - well no changes in sight for at least four more weeks. I did however, find the most awesome boots at goodwill on Thursday. I figure if anything will warm up the weather here, it is the fact I now own the best boots with no leaks! Yay!

    I have given up on warm springs. They don't exist in New England. It just stays sunnier.

    You really inspire me with sticking to your exercise in spite of the intense cold and your thumb issues.

    Poor Cooper - I can imagine how hard he was shivering. I got the little weasel a puffy coat on sale from Petco. It has a hood on it - the first time I put it on him, it covered his eyes and he was trying to sniff his way around. Hasn't been cold enough to wear it for reals.
