You know it's cold when Calgary reports this...apparently a woman was skating on the Ottawa canal yesterday and had to be hospitalised because her eyeballs froze. I can't find anything to substantiate this claim, other than hearing it on the news this morning. I'm certain you'll be reading other folks blogs who write about running or skating or skiing is this craptastic weather, but you won't find it here. Me, I spent Sunday in my jammies with the fireplace on...
|that's not really me, I don't look that good in a snuggie|
The only time I went outside was to see what was blocking my gas furnace air intake, yes, in my jammies with my down coat & winter boots on, I waded my way through the snow at 6:30am to unplug said intake valve. Luckily for me, once the obstruction (a hunk of frozen ice) was removed, my furnace sparked up right away and it seemed as though it never shut off! Lily was quite happy to snuggle up and sleep in the sunshine while I read, napped, played on the computer, read, napped....well, you get the idea of me doing absolutely nothing!!
This week I start swimming, yes, I'm joining the Greyfish three days per week, to try to keep my cardio up.
I've also just registered for the Rideau Lakes Bike Tour. This year is the 40th Anniversary and they are offering (to purchase) a commemorative cycle shirt. You know me, I'm all about the bling...so I ordered one!
Well, there you go, a momentary frozen hiccup of doing nothing in the challenge of moving every day!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
