Today brought us our first glimpse of the white stuff. It wasn't a whole lot, at least not where I lived. It started last night -- as we went to bed we noticed a bit of the powdery stuff falling and when we woke up this morning, sure enough -- the ground was covered in snow and the cars on the streets as well.
The streets were still fairly clear and driving conditions seemed to be pretty good. We had planned to go to the gym for zumba, but decided to stay home instead and use the condo gym. So off we went in our workout clothes and hoodies and made the short trek to the gym from our condo.
Despite the below zero temperature, the sun was out and it was a beautiful day. The feeling of being outside on a cold, yet sunny day is refreshing and magical! There is something about breathing in the cold air that is the perfect pick me up!
That's me trying to take a photo of us while on the bike. Alyssa and I had a good workout -- she ran and I cycled then I also did some strength exercises with the weights and some core exercises on the mat. It was a good start to the day!
Trevor stayed home rather than work out with us -- he is still nursing a bit of a cold and spent the time we were gone resting on the couch. He did however help me out later in the day to finish up the crafts I need for my coming Christmas Craft Fair next week.
He was a huge help, cutting out all the tags and boxes for my chocolate boxes. Between the 2 of us, we were able to finish all the chocolate boxes I am going to sell at my table for this fair. Inside each box is a giant Hershey kiss.
We cut out the boxes to put them in, as well as the tags which I then stamped and attached with twine. Below is the end result.
I have a few more things I will be selling, as well as handmade christmas cards and tags as well. This is the only fair I will be doing this year....and for the last 2 christmases past I didn't even do any. This one kinda just fell into my lap -- it will be held in the office complex where I work and this is the first year they are doing this, so it remains to be seen how well attended it will be. Let's hope it is!
This cold snap is not supposed to last long and it is supposed to warm up again by this coming Wednesday. I hope so as I haven't gotten my snow tires put on yet!
Have a good Sunday. Stay warm :)
