Ok, Winter has arrived. Feeling frigid enough for ya’?? This morning was a two sock morning as I huddled and waited in the bus shelter. Thank goodness did not have to wait too long. It’s been a while since I’ve had the feeling of walking into shocking cold air. Not so cold that your nose hairs freeze but cold enough that my nose starts running yet my fingers and nose are too frozen for me to tell if I’ve actually wiped it with my kleenex in my fumbling gloved hands. Ah Montreal winter, your return has been long awaited. It feels just like old times old buddy. I’m really glad I got a warm parka this year. At first, I was grumbling because I didn’t get to wear it for weeks but this baby is keeping me toasty now. I hope all the homeless people have shelters to go to when it’s cold out like this. I can’t imagine how miserable it must be. I’m complaining after just a few minutes outside all bundled up.

    On days like today, I feel grateful to only have to walk 3 blocks total outside — 1 from home to the bus stop, 2 from the metro to work, so my exposure to the cold is minimal.

    On a day like today I went out for a leisure walk with my new camera!! It’s really not that bad when you’re dressed appropriately… :) Layers and layers of clothes… Hat, gloves, scarf, capuchon! PERFECT! It was beautiful.

    I wouldn’t like to sleep outside tho… So a special thought for MTL’s homeless…
