Yesterday, we brought home a delicious almond torte.  Might I add, a chocolate almond torte.  Oh, it is so absolutely gourmet and delicious, and it tastes sooo refreshing when it's cold.  (It keeps in the freezer.)  I'm so tempted to have another piece but I know I really shouldn't….but c'mon, how often do you get to enjoy amazing almond torte?  :)  So maybe I will have that other piece.  

Apart from eating gobbling the torte, I've been reading, journaling, and just relaxing.  I like busy, I like noise, I like lots of things to do….so relaxing definitely isn't my favourite word to hear…but once in awhile, it sure feels nice ;)  

The weather has been VERY, VERY, VERY cold here.  (-30C is not uncommon, but it sure feels very cold when the wind chill is something around -40C).  And not too far to our east, it's experiencing -58C weather.  To put this into perspective, it's as cold as Mars!  (Yes, I mean the planet…not the chocolate bar. ;)  

Staying warm has been a feat. I haven't even dared to step outside today, as it's just too frigid.  Plus, frostbite can occur within 10 minutes on exposed skin.  Yikez.  That's reason enough to make me stay in.  

So back to the reading, journaling, and almond torte I go…  :)
