Thursday Walk

The seawall is still closed so my walks of late involve taking the bus out to UBC and then walking home along the endless beach. And I wore my arctic jacket to be warm. Granted it was a bit too warm, but still, I was comfortable in it and whilst walking, I could not help but think that three days before I was walking in a t-shirt because it was so warm. 

But cold, with the right clothes, is no problem. The serious problem of winter, for someone who wakes up at 3:00 t- 4:00 in the morning, is the incredibly amount of darkness I witness every day. Soon, though, the days start getting longer. Exactly five weeks today, is the winter solstice.

So now it is 4:55 am and in a few hours, Kourosh is due with my new desk, office wall and office window frames. Soon, my house will be completely and utterly finished … well except for some lighting adjustments I want to make. But for the first time in my entire life, I will be living in a place that  is exactly as I want it and finished in every detail. Hooray.

The frost looks like snow.
