In my opinion, it’s way too cold out there. The thermometer says 25 degrees. That’s just wrong. But I’m not going to complain too much – at least we don’t have any snow on the ground. We don’t get the kind of snow I grew up with here. A NJ winter back in the 50s and 60s (yeah, I’m that old) could be brutal. Funny how attitudes change. Back then when it snowed, my older brothers and I would take the Jeep out for a ride on all the unplowed back roads we could find. I suppose age – and all those years in Florida – have changed the way I perceive snow. I need to think seriously about that and my perception of it now. OK, all done thinking. I dislike snow and winter cold and that’s all there is to it.
We’re day three into the new year (hope you all had a very pleasant holiday season) and I’ve been having those pesky New Year Resolution thoughts, just like everyone else has this time of year. I’ve decided to ignore them. Pretty much, anyway.
I do have a few… I want to get outside more with the camera – when it warms up. Walk more – when it warms up. I’m also going to explore the natural and historic areas in KY a lot more – yeah, when it warms up. I’ve realized that living 30 miles from town takes a lot of adventurous exploration out of a person. By the time we’ve gone to town for a few groceries and whatever else one does in a town, we’ve traveled 60+ miles and gone nowhere. It’s discouraging.
I haven’t visited the natural arch that’s only a few miles away. Or Yahoo Falls, or the Big South Fork area, or Cumberland Falls…all relatively close (once you get to the main road anyway). So we’ll see…when it warms up some, I’ll share a few adventures here. In the meantime….hot chocolate, a good book, a cozy blanket, and a cat or two on my lap.
