AND to top it off, i had to venture outside today...today, the day of -16 C weather w/ a windchill of -31 C...yep, i about froze
i know, it's not a very attractive picture, but i was not exactly feeling attractive at this point in time...i was feeling more like a frozen, miserable popsicle.
see, i was baking cookies, and i ran out of ingredients in the middle of my little baking adventure. at this point in time, we only have one vehicle, so my only option was to parka up, and brave the wintery outdoors...so i did. it's prolly about 1/2 mile walk to the grocery store, which really isn't that far...unless it feels like it's -31 C outside...then it's a lil' ways!!! i did ok on the way to the store, but i ended up buying a whole lot more than i had anticipated, and the walk back was a killer!!! i kept praying that God would send somebody my way who would look out their warm vehicle window and would see me struggling along the sidewalk w/ frozen appendages and my 2 incredibly heavy bags of groceries, and would offer me a ride, but i guess God knew that i needed the exercise :) thankfully, i did make it home alive...barely, but i did!!!
anyways, all this to say i'm counting down the days to when we get to move south! not that we actually have any plans to move south...but i sure am hoping it happens some day!!!!
last night it put down some more snow for us...as if we don't have enough already!!!!
and this is what it looked like when we got up in the morning...not really any different than what it's looked like for the past 3 months
as much as i absolutely hate the cold, and as much as i am not a fan of living in canada, i would do it a hundered times over for the blessing of getting to spend every day w/ my favorite person in the world...i love you so much baby :)
