These are the days that test my spirit every year for some reason. It is freezing (literally), humid, and intermittently snowing today after a sunny and hot day yesterday. I saw this hillside, with frost-covered pine trees and yellow aspen, on my bike ride today. I was dressed in "full on" winter gear. I'm still shivering.
Oh - and a huge note - Shyla almost totally house-trained. I cannot remember her last accident even though we're giving her the freedom to wander the house whenever we're home.
On a final note, even though I'm building an incredible bond with Shyla, I still miss K every single day. And, she's not the only one who I've lost to cancer. I lost two dogs before her. I lost my mom and grandmother to breast cancer at a young age. So, when I ran across this cycling jersey on the web, I was sorely tempted by it. I try not to use profanity because my mother always said it was a sign of a poor vocabulary (an argument that I thought was ridiculous as a kid)... but this seems like a case where it could be excused. What do you think?
