Winter came...and the cold

We finally got what I call a proper winter, with snow. Guess who's been doing the happy dance?

But...It's the temperature stays lower than -20 degrees, down to -28 at night (-4-(-18) Fahrenheit)
So, all our plans with cross country skiing, skating, downhill skiing are put on hold. It's too damn cold outside.
The air is very dry-frozen right now and skin and throat are very dry (indoors as well). 
This day is magical. If I look up in the sky the air is full of glittering frost particles. If you enlarge the photo below you can see some white dots

 I feel sorry for the animals outdoors but they manage to survive somehow. 

Me and a couple of friends have joined a 30 days squats and plank challenge. On the 30th day I will achieve to do the plank for 5 minutes and 250 squats. My goal is to continue with a burpee challenge and then set up a daily scedule for excersize. One goal I had on hold for too long now is to start running again. I really have to set that goal soon, before it's too late.

  2. WOW! That´s proper Winter! It always amazes me to hear people saying they are so happy about big snow. When it happens here I always feel too cold to do anything but staying at home, haha.

    Glad to read from you, Linnea! I missed your regular/constant posts. 💕

    1. Thank you dear!! I was afraid that I lost a lot of readers when my posts became more about weather, daily stuff and when I didn't post as much as I used to.

  3. Poor animals!

    I never realised it being TOO cold to ski was a thing! Wow!

  4. What lovely birds you have outside! The weather is cold and dry where I live as well! I hope it warms up soon as I just bought some skates!!

  5. We had snow today, too. I love it when it snows because at least it isn't -20/28 then and we can actually go for walks! Although it still creeps me out to walk on the creek even though I know it's frozen solid, but it's the only time of year we can get to the other half of the property.

    Oh, squats - I don't know how you do those - they kill my knees. Good for you ... 250 is impressive! :D

    1. I'm also very scared of walking on ice. Our big lake have long plowed lanes for skaters. Those lanes are safe but outside...noo.

  6. Your winter looks by far more beautiful than ours. Was -16°C this morning and only thing we have is LOTS OF ICE (more than the people cleaning the streets can handle) and a bit of snow on top to make driving even more dangerous XD
