Flowers and chocolates this Valentine's Day weekend are always nice, but so are warm gloves and a maybe a dog (or two or three) to warm your feet! The arctic-like air has blasted us with what is being called “the coldest air in more than a decade.”
No, (thankfully) we don't have the below zero temperatures that some people are getting this weekend. But with icy winds, it certainly felt like it first thing this morning when I walked the dogs in single-digit temperatures.
Todd thinks the cold feels pretty good.
Or maybe .....
...He just doesn't want to wear a coat. Maybe both!
But despite the cold, there were still errands to run. One errand we had today was to "swap out" one foster cat with another. Almost two weeks ago, a lovely kitty named Scarlet arrived.
~Scarlet, we hardly got to know her~
Today, as she went off to her new home, a little boy named "Mohawk" took her place. I don't know where they get these names from. But I had to grin that the rescue that our cat, the lovely Ms. Yellow came from, also featured a cat named "Mohawk". Is that a trending name for cats?
~New boy, Mohawk~
Even with a new arrival, it was a quiet day at home. These days, I think of winter as a restful time.
A time to take stock, and build up some reserves. I make less plans, I read more books, I look ahead and look forward to the active months ahead.
