Still sunny

In the winter in Seattle, sunny means cold. We need the clouds to hold in the meager heat like a blanket.

But because the sun was out, a walk was mandated. I put the long underwear back on and added my winter boots. They really made a difference, but not sure they would be my choice for a long walk. For today’s 2 shorter walks they were just fine.

This pair of boots were purchased for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. As it turns out I didn’t need the boots there as it was especially warm. So warm that our standing room tickets to ski-cross were canceled because there was no snow to stand on.

I am a cold person, so bundling up and using blankets is the norm. Carl is a warm person, so he doesn’t pay as much attention to keeping cold at bay.

We have been working on a jigsaw puzzle gifted to us this Christmas. It was a tough one, but last night Carl stayed up and finished.

Note the extra piece off to the right. We both spent time trying to figure out where it went.

The chair by the puzzle table backs up to the fireplace, and more importantly a draft. He woke me up in the middle of the night saying he couldn’t get his feet to warm up. Since he’s rarely cold to the core, he thought he was getting sick. But an added comforter did the trick. And staying away from the fireplace today.

    Great boots! I wore three layers and my regular Keen walking shoes. Plus warm gloves! I never pass up a sunny day for a walk, no matter the temperature.
