Hot – I left the heat on in my apartment, along with broccoli and potatoes on the stove. I came home to a HOT FUNKY MESS!! Funny thing is that I wasn’t even in a rush this morning. I woke up with plenty of time to cook the veggies. Why didn’t I put them in the fridge? I have no idea.
Cold – So it’s starting to get a bit chilly ’round these parts. I’d been getting away with wearing sweatshirts or 2 t-shirts and a sweater up until last week. I finally had to break out the fleece. I have figured out some tricks to maintaining my cool in the cool.
- Don’t leave yourself exposed. I’m telling you, socks that are too short or a jacket/sweater that doesn’t cover your neck is a waste of money here.
- Be about business. Walk like you have to be somewhere 5 minutes ago. No sense in lollygagging with Jack Frost. We’re not homies.
- Blast your soundtrack. I always have my headphones in with some type of music blasting. After tests, it’s been The Killers, although I’m still listening to that Donnie song. I love it!
- The power of positive thinking. We all know it’s cold, so there’s no need to whine about it. All of my playlists include a warm-weather song. You know, something to remind you of sunshine and flip flops. “Summertime” and “Summer Rain” are perfect for powerwalking home with frostbitten toes.
See! It’s not so bad. 🙂
But seriously, this broccoli funk is making me feel queasy.
