Today was one of those cold, overcast, windy, blustery days that felt like I was living in Cape Cod in November rather than springtime in San Diego.
We went for a family walk and it wasn’t exactly my idea of fun. It felt windy enough that the wind gusts could have sent Skylar into flight.
Fun when it’s at your back at you’re 5 years old; my definition of purgatory when it’s at your face.
The wind had shook loose dozens and dozens of lemons from many of the lemon trees that we pass on our walk and there were lemons littered on lawns and sidewalks.
The anecdote to a harsh windy walk is, of course coming inside and making cinnamon bun pie.
It’s amazing what a little doctoring up can do for a tube of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and how good your house smells 15 minutes later.
And how good your belly feels.
Coffee, lots of coffee, was my friend today.
The best way to stay warm and awake so my eyes don’t glaze over while I’m editing pictures is plenty of java.
For those who workout outside, what is your biggest nemesis? Rain, wind, cold, heat, humidity?
I can handle cold weather as long as I’m dressed for it (0 degrees F is about my limit when I was living in Minnesota and Chicago) and I actually like running in the heat and humidity (Aruba, Phoenix, Myrtle Beach)
I am not a fan of rain and wind. It just cuts right through me and the entire time I’m in it, I just want it to end. Those are the days when at-home yoga sounds better and better.
I do love to just get outside every single day, even for short durations. Nature and fresh air really centers me so I’ll usually tough it out, even if it’s just 10 minutes.
What did you do today?
