I am quickly creating Austin as my second home to Ottawa. It is raining here and "uncharacteristically cold" but it is still not as cold as Ottawa! I keep laughing at how soft one can become when you are spoiled with incredible weather and facilities. In the change room some women were gripping about the fact that their nose was running in this horrible weather (+5) It was that cold! In the pool again I laughed when the men in my lane were complaining that the lifeguard chair was blocking one of the 8 synchronized clocks. I will give it to them that they are getting old... but for what they have lost in eye sight they have maintained in speed!
Just to continue with all those who spend energy blogging about food (of which I am one!) - the grocery stores here are amazing - who would not want to buy the whole produce department of Whole Foods! Then there are the samples - a must stop after a hard workout :) And Costco sells organic meats here... I digress.
I'm hungry - eating Spicy tomato lentil soup in this oh so cold weather :)
