through a snow plow bank

I go with kid in my arms

and sink to my knees

“What’s that?” Han Min asks,

pointing to his ears. The roof

pops against the cold.

dreaming of sunshine

while enduring a few more

days of arctic wind

This little sun wearing sunglasses makes me smile. What is it? It’s a felted soap, lovingly needle felted by my partner in soap making, Clara. We have a little shop called Soap Fu on Etsy and we have a blast being creative and business partners. Clara is not loving winter much these days, so when she made these suns I knew exactly what was on her mind. Spring! Summer! Beach outings and flower picking! I like winter myself and Clara has asked me to stop praying for more snow. After this past week of single digit temperatures I am starting to agree. Come early spring! In the meantime, I am enjoying any images (and scents) of spring and summer. Everybody, stay warm in the meantime!

Cold

my cheekbones feel

as though they might

pop through my skin

Despite the negative air temp, I decided to walk little Han Min to school this morning. Previously this week, it was so cold I started the car and drove him, which felt like such a production considering we live next door to his preschool! Today I decided to brave the cold and do the walk.

The walk there didn’t feel so bad, perhaps because I was busy trying to hurry the little guy along. But going home, by myself, it felt SO cold! Running up the driveway, all I could think about was how cold my face was! I thought to myself, “I’ve never ‘felt’ my cheekbones before!”

six degrees outside

I’m peeing in an alley

Hubby standing guard

And I must say — the air wasn’t as cold on my private parts as I was dreading it to be! However, it’s possible I was just so relieved to be going that I didn’t even really register the cold! This must make me a true Minnesota girl!

white puffy clouds — in the bar

I’m optimistic

about the warmth so I walk

Breathe in one degree.

My mouth feels like a new stick

of winterfresh gum.
