Six Degrees of Separation

The weather the last two weeks has fluctuated between teasing us with thoughts of spring to reminders that it is still the middle of winter. As we continue to ride our bikes daily we have become obsessed not with rain, but with how cold it will be. The temperature may only change a few degrees, but those six to ten degrees makes the difference between frozen fingers and ringing ears. On the bright side we are on the up tick to more daylight, even if sunshine means it's going to be very cold. We've switched from listening to wind chimes to guide us to home in the dark to trying to spot bird's nests in the still bare trees.

This daily change in temperature has us dreaming of consistently warm weather and living some where that we can bike to the beach. Until then here's a video to warm up your February. Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year - Year of the Cat

Happy New Year or Mung Nam Moi! The Vietnamese zodiac is slightly different than the Chinese Zodiac, so it is not Year of the Rabbit, but Year of the Cat!

Good Bye Year of the Tiger and Hello Year of the Cat.

Happy New Year. May the Cat bring you good luck in the coming year!
