Delicious winter.

I ride my bike to and from work most days, unless the roads are icy or slick, which this year has not been often.   That biting wind on the face, the impossibly blue skies, bundles of warm Zam Barrett and LOID sustainably made clothing to layer, white-hot sunshine in the salon I work at that faces south, cocktails in front of the wood burning stove in the basement at home, the feeling of the heat your body has generated after a long run in spite of below zero temperatures, the muffled footsteps after a big snowstorm, these are a few of my favourite winter things.  If you have the blues though, I wrote this for you:

winter blues

solem hues

paying dues

for that warm, summer snooze

freezing booze on a sunset cruise

movie reviews 

that force us to choose

dangerous news or pirates in clews

go for some brews

then come buy some shampoos:

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
