the rain sounds cold

January 7th, 2009 by erin

It is raining. Or hailing. Or some other sort of frozen rainesque thing that is turning all the fallen slow to heavy wet slush. 

I should probably invest in some new boots.

For now I am hibernating, in the warmth with my tea and a pile of new books. 

I am slowly but surely getting into the swing of 2009. 

We got ourselves a Wii Fit for the holidays and started it up on January 1st. It’s nice to have a way to exercise that doesn’t involve going out into the slushy snow, and I like the format and routine. Perhaps it’s the kindergartener in me but I enjoy being able to stamp a date on the calendar and get credits for minutes. Simple rewards, gold stars for good behavior. They work, though. Everyone likes a star.

Back to reading and listening to the freezing rain cascading down the side of the building. Am mid-way through Kelly Link’s Pretty Monsters and have Tana French’s In The Woods to pick up when I’m finished. Am going to endeavor to read more this year, and keep better track of what I’m reading, too.

Now, if only kittens were sleepy or snuggly instead of running around like maniacs it would be a very cozy afternoon.

    The weather sounds yucky! It’s been very cold here, the last couple of days, including with snow, but at least we haven’t had the slushy stage.

    Yay for Wii Fit! What sort of exercise are you getting with it?

    It is yucky! I just hope all the slush doesn’t freeze, because that would be gross.

    I am trying to do a good sampling of all the different sections, but mostly I am all about the yoga and the balance games. And I’m kind of addicted to the rhythm boxing.

    In the Woods! I liked it a LOT.

    Stay dry!
