We might as well embrace the Alberta winter

Written by

Each day, the busyness of our home  is lulled to sleep by shadows of the evening, and soon our calendars are quietly flipping months. It seemed like the delights of Jack Frost leaped on my back and I somehow didn't seem him sneaking up.

It's closing in on three decades that I've been tromping around on this planet, and you would think I would be used to Old Man Winter by now, but I still feel a little like sticking my tongue out at him as he sweeps by.  It's the time of year the goobers in your nose seem to freeze your nostrils together and I feel like I need to pull out some kind of manual about surviving the cold in this bleached land. Alas, no manual is needed, a few short hours in the cold and it all comes back to me.
