So, looks like everyone is finally back (to work) in 2015! We have a thin layer of winterwonderland. Five inches of snow fell yesterday and it is so cold it won’t go anywhere soon nor wilt away. Today, the skies are blue and the sun shines, and it looks beautiful.
I am watching the last few episodes of the 3rd season of Revenge, where Oliver Martinez takes a terrible exit. The show is a mix of Gossip Girl and Scandal; while it features beautiful, vile, plotting people in lush settings it lacks humor, and likeability of any character (beside Nolan Ross) and the fate of a show that should have ended after the first season.
We had the perfect conditions for a while; it had rained so much areas were flooded, and then it became very cold without any new precipitation. The ponds and local lakes are frozen with a perfectly smooth surface. People bring out their ice skates and used this natural wonder.
People even came from Connecticut and Massachusetts to bring their surf-skates.
I was thinking about kale smoothies this morning, and getting back into healthy (winter) habits, with plenty of fresh air, some winter sports, and plenty of vegetables although they are rarer this time of the year. Large pots of hot tea with lemon and some sugar. And, actually enjoying this time of the year. It’s just 2 months after all, two months of arctic cold and the occasional snow storm.
To 2015 being a good one!
