|The sun was out but it was -32c! Hard to want to leave the house.|
I am a bit hesitant to use it walking in cold weather, but it keeps me walking a steady pace and makes me forget about the cold. My other RCA one last 4 years in all kinds of weather so they must take some abuse!
I didn't feel like leaving the house yesterday as it was -32 c in the morning! But I needed to buy some new eyeglasses and food. I finally left the house at 1pm when it warmed up to -22. I took my bike and it felt good. I had a problem with v-brakes though, the rims froze up and the v-brakes were useless! First time that this has happened. I also struggled trying to lock it where I buy my eyeglasses, so I ended up not locking it and placing in front of eyeglass shop. I was struggling with the lock in the cold. I guess it's because I'm so tired of the cold! I locked it ok though at the food store, but the lock seemed extra hard to work that day, I suppose having some de-icer on hand might help.
I did have some good moments though, I got 2 pairs of eyeglasses for a good price. Shopping for glasses is challenging at the best of times. I will order more contacts later on. It's still good to have backup glasses even though I wear contacts a lot.
|I love showing off my Country with these mitts!|
And I bought 2 pairs of Canada gloves at HBC. My wool ones are getting a bit worn. These aren't wool, but are so warm! I have a pair left from the Olympics too, almost the same.
I decided to opt out of snowshoeing today as I needed a break. I may not even leave the house today. It's nice having a lazy day during cold weather. It'll be a another week or two before I snowshoe again, but I can find other ways to keep me busy.
Speaking of busy, last weekend I did a Geocaching interview with Laura at http://www.facingthestreet.com/. It wasn't actually for her website, but for the Legion Magazine. Laura is a freelance writer from Ottawa, and she advertised on Twitter looking for Canadian Geocachers to interview. Thanks to my Sister-in-Law, Christina, I got the gig! Some of my photos will probably will be published too. I will put a link here when it is published. I am hoping the one with use geocaching with bikes will be one of them..I want to show others how much fun it is to bike and geocache!
|Latest Postcrossing postcard that I have received.|
I've been busy Postcrossing too. So far I have mailed 5 postcards out in total, and received 2 back. One from Thailand, and one from Seaside, Oregon.
So come on Spring! I hope that this is the LAST of the cold weather. I know other bloggers out there are feeling the same way. Are you tired of Winter? I know Spring will be so enjoyable, I miss riding my Rocky Mountain and I am sure it hates waiting in storage.
