Hooray — the days are getting longer! I went out for a walk from the office after 5 pm and was able to do a complete walk in daylight! But it was very cold, and I had a little adventure that kept me out longer than I planned (which I will share in this post), and I had no feeling in my toes by the time I returned to my office.
The office park is really quite pretty. This is the courtyard where I walk sometimes. It is really gorgeous in the spring when the fountains are running and there are flowers everywhere. But it has a certain stoic beauty when it’s frozen as well.
I had to be careful because there were a lot of icy patches on the path!
I wanted to capture the beauty of the reflections — the sky reflected in the building windows and shimmering on the pond ice.
I walked three times around the ponds, and by then daylight was fading and I was very cold so I decided to go in.
And that’s when I had my adventure. I walked all the way back around to the other side of the buildings where the entrance to my office is located, which is basically like traveling around a large city block, and I realized I was missing something.
I had put my credit card in my pocket before I left because if it was nice I thought I might walk along the bike trail which leads to a store I like. But it was too cold for that so I chose the courtyard. Somehow when I reached into my pocket for my phone I must have accidentally pulled out the credit card and dropped it.
So I had to take a trip back around the entire building to find it. I was so cold that I half considered abandoning it and calling the credit card company to cancel and replace it! But I walked back around.
And there it was!
It was really getting dark by this time, but I was glad I had a reason to go back. Some trees decorated with lights came on and it was very pretty.
