This is what it looks like walking to work at 5 am…

…in the Iowa winter in subzero temperatures.  It has been very cold, with temperatures hovering consistently at 10 or more below.  But today it felt like this:

291

Almost warm enough to go surfing! Funny how anything over 30 degrees feels warm after that. It makes me hopeful for spring. I also find I am getting more used to the Iowa cold. I don’t complain nearly as much as I used to!

There are a few things I have found myself very grateful for lately:

1- a warm house, coat, and any temperatures above zero degrees

2- time, any time of my own

3- a husband who helps me keep me warm and looking forward to free time

 

I hope you are enjoying warm times as well!
