it’s 5

5 degrees out as I type this:

That’s what I call snot freezing cold.   Classy way to describe the weather, but entirely true.  Instead of being able to run out with a light jacket on I’ve got to do the bundle:


I’m not a big fan of the bundle.   I had to say bye to my fingerless gloves for real gloves and remembered that I can’t really use my iPhone when gloves are on.   Not a huge deal, I’m cool with not checking emails when I’m outside, but this product caught my eye:

SmarTouch gloves!   The little pads on the fingers still let you get your swipe on.   Genius!   I’m sure they’ve been around forever but when I saw these yesterday it made my day.   If winter is for real about staying in the Capital Region, I may splurge on a pair of these.

Despite the chilly temps I’ll still make a smoothie to go this morning.   I’m going to try my own creation and hope it doesn’t suck too badly.

1 cup chocolate soy milk

2 handfuls of spinach

1 tablespoon of almond butter

1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed

maybe half a banana if it needs firming up and of course some ice cubes.

I’m in the mood for something chocolatey so we’ll see if this hits the spot.   Stay warm!
