Snow, snow – bring on the snow. I love winter, but the extreme cold is just about going to do me in this week. I love the snow. Not the cold. At least that is not the extreme cold. My fingers lose feeling even with the heaviest of gloves.
This winter seems to be having a huge effect on most of the country. As I watch weather forecasts from around the country, the grass is always greener may not apply to this winter. I looked at the weather map and began to count my blessings.
My town of Ridge, NY is hovering at 9 degrees with a wind chill of -12 degrees this morning. Upstate New York is registering -11 and is expected to get to a high of 0 degrees by 2pm this afternoon. By that time in Ridge, we should be up to 18 degrees.
I’m not a beach person, but if I were – I’d not be dieting to get into bikini shape this winter, I’d be on a warm sunny beach no matter what shape I was in. Bundle up, more snow is in the forecast this week.
Taking advantage of the day off from my day job I’m working on several projects but the one I’m most focused on this morning is a Children’s Picture Book App and ironically it is about winter. I’m not sure how that happened, but it is certainly easier to relate to the subject when I’m in the thick of it. The text is completed (I think) and I’m working with a wonderful illustrator on preliminary images. I thought about a tradition book format for this manuscript, but it is a concept book that seems to be calling out to be an App. Exciting for me, a whole new publishing area to explore.
