I feel like we are being held hostage in our homes. The sun shone today but it is still bitterly cold. Of course, I do venture out because I have places to be but the wind was so strong it made today feel colder than yesterday. The weather will be changing soon, though.
Sierra is a sun-seeker and follows the sun-puddles around the house all day.
She has not been outside for weeks now and the mail-man must miss her waiting on the bench for him.
But, it's too cold to wait for anyone, these days.
Even when the sun shines the wind is too cold to walk the dog. I can stand it because I'm covered from head to toe but he's not as hairy as he used to be. With allergies all last summer, the hair on his belly and chest is a lot thinner than normal so he gets cold easily. He wears a coat but in -28C, it is too cold. So, with that, we took him for a drive today instead and enjoyed a hot chocolate while he enjoyed a treat and snoozed on the back seat. Now, he feels like he's been somewhere.

This is his favorite thing...to run through the bush
