Back to a normal winter in central Minnesota. I started feeling chills come on around 3ish this afternoon and they got worse as the sun set more and more around this part of The Hundred Acre Wood.
It’s dark and the night air is extremely frosty. It hurts my lungs whenever I breathe it in without using a fleece cowl as a filter and a layer of protection against the cold air. I knew better but I didn’t think the brief minutes that I had to be outside would matter that much. It did.
The only thing missing right now is the sound of coyotes yipping off in the distance. It’s cold and lonely out there. I’ll be snuggling in deep underneath the blankets tonight.
