...I was ecstatic about the 50 degree forecasts for today. shuffled my calendar so I could get to the park this morning for a walk. boy was I bummed when I realized it wouldn't be 50 degrees til late this afternoon and it was still in the 20's when I could walk this morning.
I couldn't bear to take a picture but I'll paint one in words - 2 layers on the bottom, 4 on top (and the toppest top - marc's coat that came just about to my knees and definitely covered my hands). plus a hat and mittens (not handmade, so kind of driving me crazy but that's a project for next winter...) point&shoot camera in the right coat pocket. ipod shuffle on the 3rd top layer. and a tissue. have it?
I've been walking in the park for over ten years. and I never remember the pond freezing.
