SOL#17 – Day 11
Is Mother Nature laughing and making a joke on us? The cold is back and with a vengeance. As I drowsily toss back the warm, flannel sheets and down comforter, cold latches onto me. Brrrr. I like to sleep in a cool bedroom, but this is ridiculous. .The house is shuddering with blustery assaults. Despite the sun starting to shine, this sharp, deadly cold persists. Nothing seems to stir outside the windows. Why would they? It’s better for all wild life to stay hunkered down in place. But not us, human life. We still carry on. I shall just dress in layers, fortify myself with an oatmeal breakfast, warm the car and shuffle off to do grocery shopping and errands. THEN, I will return to burrow myself in a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.
