Nu comme le jour où je suis né

Early Winter on the Prairies

Warm with a good book

Well, it had to happen sooner or later, but why not later is my question. Not only the Canadian prairies, but most of Canada have found winter has arrived with no intentions of leaving for many, many, many months. So what is a naturist to do but somehow find a way to enjoy indoor occasions for being clothing free. Of course, a few who are perhaps not all there will take the challenge to be bare out there in the snow and cold. Of course, I’m not talking about myself. Nope, not me. I’m content to sit by the window and enjoy the view, perhaps with a good book in my hand. I’ve proof of this as you can see in the photo.

However, almost as soon as I sit down, the outdoors calls to me and I find myself testing my limits. Not too cold? [debatable that I have good judgment here] Well perhaps it is a good time to shovel some snow. I must confess that I did need my boots and gloves and a tuque. After all, I am 70 years old and a bit frail.

On another note, I am currently in day 12 of the NaNoWriMo challenge and have passed the 20,000 word mark with relative ease. I am on pace to finish the challenge several days early if all goes well. Naturally, I am still doing all of my writing while au naturel. It is the way it is in our house. The truth is, my spouse rarely sees clothing on me unless it is meal time.Dressing for dinner is de rigeur, oh that and also helping prepare the meal when we work together. Another cup of coffee, and it’s time to get back to the novel. And yes, those are wool socks on my feet. Sanity must prevail.

    Hum seems we didn’t escape this last winter round either snow and below zero. You are much bravery than I when shoving. Not enough to use the snow blower yet. Thanks for sharing.

      I was out of the wind and that made all the difference, Melvin. Not so willing to go outside today with stronger winds now here.

    The first pic is great, delicious… The body, the light, the view from the window. Thanks for your inspiring blog in these cold months (April is now closer:))
