Winter Weight Worries

Its occurred to me that I could choose to not whine about our weather. That would be good. I have friends living in Winnipeg, after all. πŸ™‚

It’s just that last winter was so easy and this winter is so not.

Friday was a blizzard with white-out conditions (but, being hearty souls, we ventured out to opening night of “The 39 Steps.”) Driving home, I remarked that the road conditions reminded me of…well…Winnipeg.

Saturday, we awoke to…

Behind house

…at the back door and this…

Front walk

…at the front door and really, a terrible case of Cabin Fever set in hard and heavy. We shovelled and used the snow blower and that was the extent of my interest in being outside.

Until today. I went out to do a little shovelling-tidying-up and realized that amid all my mutterings and self-pitying, the sun had come out and the sky was blue!

Shovel, shovel, shovel and then then MD and I headed to The M.

Turns out the time I’d been out was the only time we had actual sunshine, but no matter, we got our walking legs under us again, and there’s really nothing better, wouldn’t you say?

Our view today…The M view

MD and I shook a hand/paw enroute home, promising to repeat this walk, this week. We sure don’t want to get caught wearing our Winter Weight when spring arrives.

My love of walking began in 2005, when, travelling with my Girl Scout troop to Switzerland, I joined a group of Norwegians for a day, to walk up Elsignenalp. I wasn't at all sure I could make it, but the guide was kind and through her encouragement, started out. It was an all-day affair for me and I was always the last one, but this didn't matter a bit...I'd found my new love! No photos exist for this...the camera went missing on a train...but I remember toasting myself with a cup of tea from my thermos at the top...it was a day of tough work and pure pleasure. If you walk, you know what I mean!
