So after a painful cold snap and weeks in the deep freeze, we are now enjoying beautiful weather! Still cold enough to require coats and hats, but no need to hibernate.
It's amazing what the weather can do to your mood. I felt myself getting grumpier as the cold days dragged on. Now, the weather forecast is calling for a high of 5c (41f) and I couldn't be happier. I have plans to meet some friends at a play place this morning, but we'll be playing outside in the warm weather and sunshine this afternoon.
In other news, it seems like that blister on my leg is already starting to heal. Unfortunately, it got popped yesterday. (I could see that coming. With a two year old and a three year old, one of them is going to charge at me...) Having said that, it's looking better. No problem wearing my running tights, and I'm optimistic I'll be back in the pool before the weekend's over.
I'm even considering doing a run today while pushing the kids in the chariot. I wish I could pull my bike out, but the roads are still covered in snow (which is turning to slush), so that won't happen for a while yet. Maybe we'll pull the kids' bikes out over the weekend though! The sidewalks should be pretty much ride-able.
