I thought I would be smart yesterday and wait til it started snowing to get out for a run (not sure why that sounded fun?). I must have missed the weather reports about it being a storm with gusts of icy snow vs. light, fluffy, pretty snowflakes. Do you know how far you can run with your eyes closed? 3.7 miles for me. Icy snow pelting your face feels pretty much like you would expect it to. I kind of enjoyed it in a weird way.
Frank got home from work early last night and we were in the midst of sorting through our stash of newspapers from 2006 and assorted phone/camera/ipod chargers for long-gone devices when we saw a guy skiing by our window. Whaaaat? Why were we not already doing that? Because one of us is moving in 5 days and we have a giant ball of cables and cords and 7 years worth of articles about Detroit sports teams from Frank's grandma? No. Because we didn't think of it!
It was a much better way to spend the evening. Turned out to be a true wilderness experience with a loop past the 24-hour Walgreens. ;)
And going off the trail at the park.
I wanted to take Lucy along for the fun, but she said she got enough snow packed in her fur on Saturday walking with her friend Porter.
She really made a big deal out of being tired after that.
Little did I know, she was just saving her energy for barking/disturbing the neighbors while we were gone that night.
Does anyone know how to stop a dog from barking when they're home alone?
Do you hoard weird things like electrical cords and newspapers in boxes in your back room too? There has to be something strange that you collect that you can tell me about...
How was your weekend? Hope everyone stayed safe and warm!
