Well, except I will share pictures. I like visuals for my art blog.
So, it's cold out here. COLD-cold. Last night I was out with my husband at a business dinner and it was -19 F (-28C) with a windchill about -30 F ( -34C). Now, folks, that's just cold! Parts of your body just go numb, after screaming at you in agony for a few seconds. It's not pleasant.
This morning, it was up to 1 degree (-17C). Interestingly, it feels just about as cold. Possibly because the windchill isn't that different. But the sun is out, and the snow is blowing around outside in the most amazing patterns. In the field next to my house, it actually looks like a frozen ocean, complete with waves. (These are from instagram for the most part, I'm trying to remember to use the account: kyraart - I had deleted my original one when they had their sneaky policies in place.)
|This doesn't really do it justice. It's amazing, wave-like, and dynamic!|
|I brought my co-pilot in the car with me though so we could shiver together.|
|I'm working on getting my spot back in front of the fireplace. Lily won't leave it.|
And I got to work on them yesterday. I heavily salted their backgrounds, and I'm hoping I haven't over done it.
|They always look like zombies with the violet layer. Long ways to go, but it makes me wonder about stopping at this point on a picture... a purple girl... Might be kind of cool?|
Today, I've been too cold to work. My joints hurt in my hands. Some of this is without a doubt due to the cold, but some of it is the over indulging I've been doing for a while. If my body swells, my hands don't work as well. It's unfair, but true.
Tomorrow, my husband and I are starting a new fitness plan, and with it we'll be locking our food back down again too. I'm hoping that clears up most of the issue for me. The rest? Well, I'm contemplating painting with an electric blanket on my shoulders!
