I feel as though all I’ve done for months is sit. I’m bored and stiff and getting crankier by the day. But when you’re a broken-down one-legged old reprobate who has already taken some damaging falls in the past couple of years, traction is an important issue. The snow isn’t gone yet by any means but it’s no longer the biggest factor in venturing outside – that would be the mud. And first thing in the morning the mud is frozen, so also not a factor. I can at least go back to doing my morning chores on foot.
It was a pleasure to get outdoors for an hour or so. It was heavily overcast all day yesterday and is so far today, so it wasn’t nearly as cold as it looked. I dressed too heavily and now I need to change out of all my sweat-soaked upper clothing but it was worth it.
Since that may be the whole of my activity for the day, this may be all I have to post about. Looking forward to Saturday when Landlady has said she definitely plans to visit regardless of weather, if only for a break in what is becoming a really monotonous winter.
