It’s cold. Seriously cold. North Carolina is in a cold snap unlike any I have seen in years! This got me to thinking about my winter routines. Those that include skin, hair, fitness and food.
This coming week, I am going to be focusing on these items. Looking good, feeling good and you can integrate most of it with the whole family. My husband and son both have very dry skin and mine is sensitive bordering on schizophrenic at best.
Local weatherman, Brad Panovich, just tweeted “If we hit 19° before midnight we will have 7 nights in a row in the teens, should be 10 in a row by Mon morning setting all time CLT Record”.
Which means extra special treatment since we are used to weather this cold. I guess it’s my acclimation to the area that I live in, but I am missing 50 degrees and sunny in January. However, it gives me so much more respect to the hardy stock that my cold weather brethren are.
Rainy days make me think of the Carpenters song “Rainy Days & Mondays“. The first lines just seem to fit:
“Talking to myself and feeling old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin around, nothing to do But frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down”
I know it’s not Monday, but it is still the kind of day when all I want to do is sit down with a notebook, a good cup of coffee, and write. So, that is all for today, just me being quiet, listening to the Carpenters, drinking coffee and writing.
