Today was my first day back at work after 17 days off... and I am tired! Mentally, for sure, but also rather physically tired, as I got up with the alarm for the first time in quite awhile... after, of course, NOT going to bed at a reasonable hour last night. (Anyone else fall into a whole different pattern of sleep when they're off work for awhile? I certainly do! For me, vacation mode = stay up late + sleep in.)
But, even though the holidays were wonderful, it actually feels good to be getting back into a regular routine once again.
In other news, I thought I'd share a photo that I took while playing with my new Olloclip lenses, just to give you a hint as to what we've been experiencing here in Windsor since we returned from Victoria.
It has been cold! We've had a couple of dumps of snow, and the temperature has dropped far lower than it ever has in all of the two years since we moved here. Last night, with the wind chill, it reached -39C - which at that point is almost the same is if you were using Fahrenheit!
Our furnace is working hard to pump out the warm air (I shudder to think what our heating bill will rack up to this month!), and we are staying warm and dry inside. This is one week where I am doubly glad I work from home, so I don't have to venture outside into the nastiness!
Is your area experiencing a deep freeze?
