Staying active in the winter

The Carpe Diem Life

Is it just me or is it sooo much harder to stay active in the winter??!

This week started out in the high 50’s with plenty of sun, and I thought to myself “Great! I can go on a long run this weekend!” but in true Idaho fashion … it snowed… for the three days after that. Since my run was out of the question,  I thought about hiking instead. Generally hiking in the winter requires snowshoes(or if you prefer, cross country ski’s).

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
