Sunday, January 9th

Spent Friday night and part of Saturday morning trying to put things away in the new apartment. You never realize how much junk you have until you move. We did get most things put in place and finally have a feeling of home for the first time in a year. SBFs Mindy and Paul came over and we all went out to eat at Twin Dragon. Of course this being a buffet/Mongolian restaurant, we may have over indulged slightly (slightly being the key word). After we waddled to the car, they dropped us off at Freddie's. Here we attempted to walk off that heavy meal as we did a little shopping.
Little did we know, we would get a lot more walking than we had anticipated. We loaded up on new things for the apartment and a few groceries. We headed out to catch the bus back home in 10 degree weather. For the first time in the history of mankind, the number 3 bus was about 7 minutes early to our stop and..... we watched it rocket by us as we were walking toward the stop!
As luck would have it, this was the last bus back downtown. So we walked the approximately 2 miles back to the apartment. It really wasn't that bad, but we weren't as prepared as we usually are for cold walks. We did have to walk about 1/2 mile through the woods in the dark, no streetlights. Not scary- just kinda makes you become extra alert for moose. Got out today and took some pictures. As you can tell from the pictures, the dense freezing fog of the last few days makes all the trees glisten.

Remember the snow in a can that you sprayed on your Christmas trees? That is exactly what this reminds us of.
