In which the sun is so bright that I can see every speck of dust

kwwoodsMan oh man, what a gorgeous day! It began a bit cold. My iPhone proclaimed something like -13. I got up and mobilized *anyway* and, as has happened so many times this winter, it was cold in my neighborhood but more like 8 above, which is a no-brainer to dress for. Balaclava and snowpants, etc. Layer up. I’ve got it down pat. YakTrax? I didn’t need them today. I have certainly used them this winter but not anywhere near as much as the last two. Prob’ly in the next week though…

The sun was out in full force ALL day! It was gorgeous! It also highlighted every single speck of dust! Did I dust today? Not really, except in the chitchen, which I deep-cleaned.

I spent a lot of time down in the Landfill Dungeon today and I made big progress! Not that it looks all that much different, only I can see progress. Long way to go still.

I woke up this morning to a batscope-type text, something like “Moom, do you want to ski with me at Kensington tomorrow?”. Oh man, Yes I did. But we didn’t, although I did check out where my skis were. The thing is that we have a lot of snow here but we got that snow weeks ago and we haven’t been blessed with much of any snow since then. We have old, crappy snow and the trails at Kensington are probably as icy as all getout. Not great for xc-skiing. I was still very happy about the invitation, batscope that it was.

I did walk through Miller woods today. I wore my red Keen sandals. I took my hiking pole with me and I used it a couple times on steep little hills but generally I was okay without it. And then I headed over to The Plum Market and eventually home.

Yes, I am wearing a skirt. With leggings underneath it. Layer up and layer down. Don’tcha love the north-country? I do!

    I don’t even own a skirt! Glad you got a beautiful day and accomplished a lot! I did tons of yard work (ouch on the back), and dusted/vacuumed as well as starting to organize my taxes. (YUCK) In a few minutes I’ll get to Skype with Alison, I hope. It’s been 2 weeks, so I can’t wait to catch up.
