It was another typical central Minnesota winter day. The sun was out but it hung low in the sky and the trees cast long shadows even at 1:00 PM this afternoon. Clouds were high racing across the plains as the day passed. Still it was a good day for a walk; two of the actually. I just bundled up with my black hoodie and my black pea coat and black fleece gloves. I basked in the warmth of the sun as it was sucked up by the dark clothing. Warmth outdoors in a late December day is a luxury and I loved how it felt while I was out walking.
