Monday evening I returned from a very short sabbatical in which I went to New Orleans and took a cruise to Mexico, Belize and Honduras. It was very nice and relaxing.
The neighbor across the street told me that we picked the best week to go as it was very cold while we were gone. I might have to take issue with him as today was quite cold with the wind chill a -18° degrees. Tomorrow will not be much better with a high of 2 degrees. The north wind that comes from Canada makes all the difference in the world as to whether it will get extremely cold or just cold.
During my time away, I did fairly well trying to stay on the Paleolithic diet but there were times throughout the day when I simply wanted a piece of bread or — quite honestly — a hot chocolate.
I’ll be posting pictures soon of our escapades and also of the day we spent in New Orleans. Mardi Gras has not started yet but the Superbowl is this weekend so there were plenty of people out and about. We even attended a dog parade — of all things!
Tonight I just want to sit in front of the fireplace, watch TV and stay warm.
