Wow. The world looks different after four days without moving from your driveway. I did The Less Desirables, solo, early on Wednesday evening and then came home. I parked Nigel and then didn’t move him until this morning. Though there was still ice and snow on the ground, and other than a few side roads, it wasn’t on the asphalt, too much. So, mostly, it was a good ride to my “office” today.
Come to think of it, I didn’t even step outside but once in that whole time. Friday morning, I took the trash out. The can is right off my side porch, which is covered and there was a bit of snow and crud coming down then. It certainly was cold. I can stand the cold pretty good. I’ve walked my dog barefoot in the snow before. I’ve used my hand to melt snow from my windshield. I’m the “hot water bottle” or “hand warmer” for my loved ones and friends. It was really cold out there on Friday.
It got up to around 42°F today (if you’re to believe Nigel’s temp gauge) and the stuff started melting. That just means that what melts will be ice again tonight and tomorrow. So, be careful if you’re out and about. I won’t have to worry about it until tomorrow evening. Hopefully, it goes away soon. I used to really like the cold weather, but as I’ve said (this weekend), it’s more a hindrance, now. I am mobile, now, though. Not that I wasn’t then, but didn’t even care about moving.
Cabin fever never happened, I enjoyed my time with The BCPF. We just sat and watched television. Catching up on several episodes of Friends and the entire season of Master Chef: Canada, just to name a few. Then add the football games and that was a decent little jaunt in hermitage. I am glad to get out for a bit today. I like when The BCPF are together, though, whether “stuck” at home or out and about, no matter what we’re doing. I hope we’re not secluded much more this winter, but it’s okay if we are. We always have a good time.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
