Ok, so it is cold. We have to work with what we got so lets enjoy some famous, or infamous, tidbits about COLD...
“I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood.” -Bill Watterson (author of Calvin and Hobbes)
My take; the stack of Calvin and Hobbes books in my son's room is a certain give way of his love of that comic strip. As far as bad moods, I see no use in them and try to avoid them as much as possible. Thus, I am forgivable to a fault.
“It doesn't matter if the water is cold or warm if you're going to have to wade through it anyway” -Teilhard de Chardin (a French philosopher)
My take; sure much like a mission to get healthy no matter what your attitude is about the work that lay ahead, cold or warm, you have got to wade into it if it is going to get done.
“I will have naught to do with a man who can blow hot and cold with the same breath” -Aesop (Ancient Greek story-teller)
My take; Whatever
“He receives comfort like cold porridge.” -William Shakespeare
My take; Huh, what do you know, Shakespeare knew my father.
“Three feet of ice does not result from one day of cold weather.” -Chinese Proverb
My take; Yep, three layers of blubber did not form on my carcass from one day of bad eating.
Alright, I think that is enough. So it is cold. Not going to let it get me down. It is warm in the office and yes I am grateful I do not work outside for a living, I will eat hot food and skip the salad bar this day, I will be healthy indoors as it really isn't hard, and I can't wait for the Bears game on Sunday; GO BEARS!
Kelly)... as I said GO BEARS!
So how cold is it where you are today and are you letting it get you down?
