It is downright chilly when I leave the house early in the morning for a walk around the village. I've put off my departure until about 7am just to gain a little more daylight, but the sun isn't up enough to make a difference in the temperature and I know my mornings walking outside are soon to be over. My ears are freezing by the time I get home but I know a hat would make my head sweat so I stopped in the store up in the village the other day (that features all types of work-out gear) and picked up a nice ear covering/head band type of thing to keep them warm.
I'm most grateful for chap stick of all types. I have the brand name in some of my various coat pockets but I also have some made by Burts Bees and Nivea and they all do the job nicely. I'm wearing heavier work-out clothes and longer socks, but once the thermometer dips below 35 I think I'm done. Then it will be back to the gym for me. The gym is more boring, but it's also more comfortable!
All that said, I still enjoy getting outside on nice clear mornings. Other than the traffic that speeds down Main Street at unbelievable rates early in the day, its more peaceful - and quieter - than at any other time. Besides the group waiting for the Hampton Jitney or the folks going and coming from the Golden Pear and Starbucks, it's pretty calm on the sidewalks. It's a nice way to do some window shopping and admire the beautiful clothes that are so far out of my price range.
It's a great way to start the day. I'll miss it when it ends for the season.
