Winter has been calm this year.
In contrast to the harsh Winter we had last year, this year is turning out to be very nice. It’s been mostly rainy and cloudy, but no snow to speak of. Foggy, like an outdoor humidifier, has been the norm of late. The temperatures are mild, in the 60’s forecast for this week, no bone chilling weather in sight.
February may bring a surprise or two, but I’m hoping Spring comes early this year. I can’t wait to get back on my mountain bike, cause I’m not into cold weather riding. I continue to walk when the weather is dry, but it’s no substitute for an hour of spinning.
Surprisingly, the ten pounds I gained during the holidays has melted off, goes to show you that any activity is better than none. I have to admit that walking our hilly neighborhood is a workout, and with our Android phone pinpointing our location with the Google Maps app, we can venture far and wide without the fear of getting lost.
I am falling
Like a stone
Like a storm
Being born again
Into the sweet morning fog
