A BEAUTIFUL afternoon. Finally, a break in the cold snap, which I think began in October. So little walking, so much eating and mall hopping. I’m not sure who was happier stumbling though the snowy trails, the dog or me. Probably the dog. She loves the snow. So do I, but I love blue sky more, and the endless grey cloud of the last month has weighed heavily on my motivation, as has the terribly chilly weather…and the trays of delicious snack items. They all conspire to keep me off the trails. But, no more. Really. No, really.
