Day one of the looong weekend, and already, only twenty-four hours into winter the air tingles with frost, and the wind hisses outside. Ice is forming on my bathroom window, as that is the only single pane window in the apartment–yes I have thermal plastic covering it. Everywhere else in the apartment seems to be holding out well from the deep-freeze. Actually, I cannot complain as it could be much worse than it really is. As the “old timers” say, this cold only lasts for a couple of weeks, then it all thaws again. Great news to hear, but I am dealing with it in good spirits.
The car runs excellent in this cold, and no issues with my apartment either, so I am happy. It looks like the apartment was built very well to handle the arctic out flow weather like this. Actually, as I type this out, I can hear the wind blasting away, making that hissing sound, as it passes through the trees near by. I almost forgot what winter was like, living down South for so long. Oh, we will have a white holiday that is guaranteed.
I did some shopping today. Bought some neat stuff. One of the items I bought was a clay “Sleeping Mermaid” on a water lilly-pad figurine. Very cute. I will post a photo of it in a couple of days.
Well, time to rest and get ready for day number two of my four day weekend. Despite the cold, I can say, “this is the life.” I just hope I do not gain too much weight from lazing around for to long.
