|Ron bundled up for the cold|
I just returned from a very abbreviated walk. The temperature here is now hovering around 23 degrees. I was all right with my walk until I started to walk against the wind. I just can't take that painful cold wind on my face.
The picture above is how I bundle up before I go out for my walk. Yes, I know. I'm turning into a big wimp. When I was younger, the cold didn't bother me near as much as it bothers me now.
Every year when January and February rolls around, those are my "just get through it" months.
This is the last day of January. Now for February, one more "just get through it" month.
Then, THEN the beginning of glorious spring when everything comes to life after a long winter's hibernation.
The daffodils will bloom again. Colorful tulips with burst through the frozen earth. Scouting Purple Martins will return from South America to check out their summer house in my back yard.
And most of all, the people will come alive. They will stream out of their houses into the bright, clear sunshine of springtime. The garden departments of Home Depot and Loew's will again be crowded with erstwhile gardeners.
