This morning: -9! (-27 with windchill)

Is that some kind of a cold weather CHALLENGE!?! KA-SHING!

I don't like taking my morning walk in cold weather, but, come on. -9? To me, that's so extreme that I have to go out in it just to see if I can do it. I put on my warmest bundlings- snowpants, boots, Arctic-grade parka, serious mittens- and was prepared for battle. I got stuck only once. I had a bit of an asthma attack after trudging through the deep snow in the woods up a little rise. But the spirit of the woods was on my side because a really big hawk flew by just then and distracted me long enough that my lungs calmed down. By the time I got home, I was nice and toasty from the exercise.

Not today, Cold Weather Man!

Hi Bahiyyih. It's me, Lucy. I will be 7 years old. I love you Bahiyyih. You're the most sweetest aunt in the world. Thank you for all you've done for me in this world. plus I love the movies you make. And I like that you are you. Would you like me to tell you a story? Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a castle. And she said, I want to be free like the other children and so she set off into the wilderness until she came to a little cottage which was shaped as a shoe and there was this little old lady with like a lot of children so she knocked on the house for shelter. Come in, she said and invited her for tea. The end. I hope you like the story. And the email's done.
