A Cold Walk

Liz ended up driving us closer to the lake, where we parked and walked along the shoreline. There were a handful of other people around, but it was pretty desolate – the sun was setting, and the wind was coming in off the water.

Snow Day

Woke up this morning with a good amount on the ground. I’d heard there was going to be a lot of snow over two days (and possibly some colder temps, turning things to ice). All this got me out the door around 7:30 AM to get a jump start on clearing the driveway and sidewalk.

Near the end of the work day, I decided to go out and grab some supplies. With a lot of snow in the forecast, I figured food delivery and grocery deliveries would be difficult/delayed, and we needed supplies at hand just in case.

The best sound of the whole night? When young kids were simply unable to really manage the salad tongs, and so it would just be this sound of constant buzzing for like 20 seconds. Hilarious. Made me laugh every single time.

Early Espresso

From time to time, I have this pattern: wake up early, run some errands at the nearby Walgreen’s, stop for an espresso at the French bakery.

This all happens fairly early, circa 7-7:30 AM. But it’s a nice start to my morning, in that I’ll sit and sip on this espresso for a little while, before heading home.

Blocked

I was walking to UPS today, and came across a driver just kind of sitting at a stop sign. There were no other cars around, but he seemed to be just looking in the distance. And not moving.

Flip

I like to imagine it was sitting there, upright, until someone who was really mad came along. And everything just naturally worked out from there.

The Sight of Trees

Our walks have been a good thing, and a habit I hope we re-introduce into our lives. While we have retreated from the world this last year, the world still exists. And I’m realizing how much more intention is needed, for us to interact with it.
