After two weeks of the bitter cold, I am so glad Minnesota was 20 degrees on yesterday! I also am very aware that those in the South are still suffering from cold, and the aftermath of days without power and water.
This week’s photo was actually taken on a clear evening in December, but never made its way to the blog or even Instagram.
I’ve found that I’m taking less pictures and I have less to post about on Instagram as covid/work from home continues. I actually hadn’t posted anything on Instagram is January, and not until TimeHop reminded me that 6 years ago I went to Florida with friends from college for the Disney Princess Half Marathon.
I have been posting on stories occasionally, especially as I dip my toe in the Peloton waters. I’m just in the 2 months free trial period right now, but I plan on using the app for now while I don’t have a gym membership. I have my road bike set up on a trainer, and haven’t hooked up anything to capture the speed, so my Peloton account looks bleak, but the classes are entertaining. And it is wonderful to decide if I am going to do a 20, 30, or 45 minute spin class. I’ve also taken a couple cardio/yoga/stretch classes, but those aren’t as great as the spinning.
I really can’t wait for Spring. I hope March this year is as good as last year in terms of weather. I look forward to being outside and in fresh air, and hopefully seeing friends at least outdoors again. I also am dreaming about not living in a condo and having a true backyard someday. My one bedroom condo has served me well, but if I knew a work from home situation was coming, I would have been a little more adamant about finding a two bedroom.
But for now I will be thankful for the condo I have, and the fact that the weather warmed up with minimal destruction.
How over winter are you?
