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!

no really, it’s over

Have you ever gone through a breakup but made that one last ditch phone call that you hoped deep down in your core would make your partner change their mind and maybe, just maybe, patch things up?

That’s what winter is doing today.   Someone should remind winter that those phone calls NEVER work.  

Bundle up!
