This week has been full of "life admin" stuff. Paperwork, taxes, car trouble. For the first time this morning I just plain forgot to do morning dynamic stretches. I realized at lunch that something felt off. Did them right after remembering but it's a good example to not get complacent and keep that beginner's mind strong.

It's been what I think of as cold. (mid 40°F / 5-7°C) I know most of the Northern Hemisphere has it worse I'm not complaining. But I'm no hero, when it's that chilly I don't go run, it makes something already unpleasant just plain awful. Also my wife's response to cold rainy weather is to make the most delicious japanese food and desserts. I've succumb to her culinary wiles far too many times. Time to tighten up!

Flexibility is improving in all areas. Whoever made this program knew what they were talking about. Also bird paintings every day!

      That’s cold for your neck if the woods! We had a snow day yesterday for schools and work, so I made beef bone broth in the pressure cooker. I put it outside to cool and when I brought it in, the pot was covered with a layer of ice. The fat was easy to pull off and we had tasty broth for sipping and soup (warmed up first, of course).

      As for running in cold weather without snow, I find it easier to run than in the warmer months...I don’t have to bring water with me, although I have made ginger tea, and put it in a small handsized squeeze bottle that I keep in my front jacket pocket...especially when running 6+ miles...cooled a bit so as not to melt the squeeze bottle.

          Nice to see such colourful, cheery birds on a cold, damp February day.
