Snow and swimming

I've been trying to up my swimming - moving from 2-3 days a week to almost every day - but I've discovered a key problem. In order to get to the warm pool, I have to walk through the cold snow.  I generally like snow (I even went skiing this afternoon!) but I am getting a little tired of it all. There - I said it. I want no more snow. I want birds singing, I want bike riding and I want open windows. Sigh.

In the meantime, I finally pulled the plug on the Way Not Taken scarf. With 500 yards of Kitty Sock Yarn in the skein from Unplanned Peacock Studio, I could easily have made it twice as long but since it was already measuring 72 inches long, I decided to bind off. It's currently blocking up on Oldest Daughter's bed.

Good thing she's off at college and not planning to sleep in that bed!

I used to like walking to the Y in the cold, bc the pool was so hot that i liked the refreshment. Now that the pool water is a normal temp i agree with you:)
We need some green grass and birds singing. And while i am at it....we need outdoor pools:)
