In Winter

Every mile is two in winter.

~ George Herbert

The holidays are well and truly over. Tomorrow I go back to work and the boys go back to school. I've been at home since Thursday night and yet, I wish I could stay here a few more days.

It's mighty cold outside you see. The temps have been below zero all day and I shudder to think of what the windchill is.

As far as I know there is no end in sight for the cold. You'd think I'd be used to it by now, having lived in the Hinterlands my whole life, but no. I whine and kvletch as much each year as I did the last.

The thought of getting up and heading out tomorrow seems unbarable, but I know I'll do it...even if each mile seems like two.

Until Later...
