So this week’s topic is FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN THE WINTER. Timely, no?

Or that I go for long, long walks during the most brutal of winter days, fully invigorated and stimulated by the frigid air whipping around my face.

I hate that I have to wear 947 layers just to go from the car to the inside of the grocery store.
I hate snow, ice, wind. In no order, and all together!
I hate wearing hats and gloves. Boots and snow tires. Using shovels and snowblowers.
