Another snow shower predicted for today. Wanted to get in a walk before it got really bad, plus I wanted bread & milk.


The sidewalks were just lightly dusted and walking was easy. The temp was 32 degrees, right at freezing. I could see my breath and it was very grey, but I didn’t feel chilled. It was actually quite lovely and peaceful.


The store I wanted to hit was only about 7 blocks away and it took no time at all. Unfortunately they weren’t open yet. I waited around in falling snow for awhile. Two other people came and went. One waited with me for a bit, then gave up. I stayed a few moments longer, my glasses getting droplets of crisp new precipitation. Walked back and stopped at a store that was open. I had passed this place on my first round, but they were a bit smaller and their selection not quite as large as my original destination.


$3.59 for a gallon of milk. An actual cow might be cheaper in the long run, but I don’t think my landlord would approve. Being a corner store there was no hope of getting my preferred choices: Smart Balance, Lactaid or Almond Milk. Whole milk it shall be. In and out, back home. Entire journey took about 30 minutes. Not very exciting, but it jumpstarts my day.
