I now have a whole new respect for construction workers working outside in cold winter weather. But to have cold winter weather here in Victoria, really?! Wool socks and 6 layers later, barely able to move, I made may way to the shop and pulled up the garage door, opened the back door, and turned my ventilation fan on. It is either a curse or a blessing that I am recently home from sunny Florida. As I work and slowly freeze I remember how amazing my holiday was, and it is either helping me forget the fact that I cannot feel my feet, or it is pissing me off that if I was in fact in Florida I would be able to feel my feet, embedded in the sand, while warm breezes gently blow the palm trees!
