Dave and I went on a 5 mile run this morning, and damn! it’s cold out! I’m not complaining; I’m merely stating the facts. It actually was very nice to run and not feel exhausted or out of breath due to heat and humidity.
Hot tea, cinnamon and sugar toast (man, it’s been ages since I’ve had this) and pb toast really warms me up when it’s this cold out! I just tried Sami’s Bakery 7 Grain Cinnamon Raisin bread, and it is pretty yummy.
My mom has bought me a Christmas ornament for every year of my life. They’ve been tucked away in a box in her closet for the past 28 years. Every year when my sister and I opened the ornament we were like, “oh yeah! a 1996 Hallmark ornament. Last one of the series. Score. Just what we wanted. Thanks Mom!” We really aren’t that ungrateful, but some of the ornaments are pretty ridiculous. My sarcastic comments aside, it was really cool for Dave and I to decorate our first tree as a married couple with all these ornaments. No, really Mom. THANKS! And let’s not forget, my Dad! I know he was right there next to her for all these purchases! (No he was actually lost in the bookstore or electronics store).
We’ve also buy ornaments every time we go on vacation (oh, no. It’s happening!). In 2010, we went on our honeymoon in Pagosa Springs, Colorado and skied at Wolf Creek; we stayed at a beach house in Narragansett, Rhode Island and went to Boston and Block Island; and we visited San Antonio for a long weekend for a friend’s wedding.
It’s nice to pull those ornaments out of the box and reminisce together!
Dave is getting so into this Holiday thing, I even came home last night to Christmas music playing. (That is a little much!)
What are some of your holiday traditions?
How do you dress when you run outside in the cold?
Enjoy your (cold) day!
