Chillaxin' in the Chill

Ah the 80 degree days of last week are gone. It was all of 17 degrees this morning with very strong winds and a  below zero dewpoint,  which I never heard of before. It means that it is so dry here that fires are a big danger especially since so many of the houses are wood (they saved the bricks for my running paths...pretty but  tough on my legs). Today is garbage day. The gale force winds sent garbage bags all down the street.

The cool temps make it easy to run  though that wind was no fun at least in one direction this morning. Also it makes it easy to chose my clothes. I packed mainly winter clothes and only a weeks worth given that there was snow on the ground when we came. But I would not have missed this time.

Most of the days are spent watching Tessa's antics. Each day her alert periods lengthen and she is able to open her eyes wider. So far she is an easy baby..hope that continues. She had a doctor check-up yesterday. All is fine though she is down 10 oz from her birth weight.

Shanna moved to this community in part because it is safe. Yesterday a cop knocked on the door wondering if we saw the house get broken into across the street in the middle of the day. Ugh!
