(Standard disclaimer that plenty of places are colder than Portland. That said:)

It's been a long week.

It's been a cold week.

It's been a long, cold week, plus it's been a longer work week than usual because I got called in for five extra hours of work on Saturday, one of Portland's snow days. My job requires me to be outside a lot. There are only so many layers I can wear on this job.

I finished that work week today, though, and got back to the house, and almost immediately got into a T-shirt and sweatshirt then heated up water for broth. As best as possible, I'm keeping the cold away from my bones.

It'll be warmer weather later. I will welcome that.
