Delayed escape

This morning I read about the motorcycle wreck and another wreck yesterday morning on the bridge I cross twice in the early hours. Turns out at least one of them (as reported by the driver on the neighborhood blog) was caused by black ice. Another driver on the road at the same time reported that he could see it on the road.

I went over that road twice and never saw it or even thought to look. Yikes. It's really cold out there this week. Really cold. The lady who opens up the gym has even taken to opening up a few minutes early to let the handful of us who are waiting in to warm up. I'd much rather than chilly weather than hot but even so, I'm a little over this cold. If you add snow, we can talk but if dry, then off my lawn!

My face is a little better. Yesterday and today I slathered vaseline all over the chapped parts and it seemed to have helped. Plus I kept some kind of cream/moisturizer/white face on it all day. It's not as rough, dry and itchy and the broken skin is gone... So maybe if I keep this up...

My toe is no better BUT, at least it's no worse. I'm going to keep up the soakings for a while and hope for better results. Also keep it moisturized and wrapped. Thankgod for my Crocs - at least I have shoes that I can wear painlessly.

However, I'm not thinking I'm going to need shoes today. It's just colder than is fun to be outside for no good reason. Tomorrow is house cleaner day and I'll go out then, but today, home and warm are the headlines.

I think I might make a swimsuit. I have enough winter clothes and I can't get inspired for summer clothes when it's so cold out. The more suits I have in rotation, the longer they will last and there are only three in rotation now. So I think another one would be a good Tuesday project.
