It's been really cold the past few days, 10-15 degrees cooler than it normally gets this time of year and about 45 degrees colder than it was 2 weeks ago. So, naturally, I'm quite happy :-) 
I love these cold, clear, sunny winter days. The sky is so blue and the air so clear that everything looks etched against it.
I took the dogs for a walk in Duke Forest which I haven't done in a long time. There was no one around and it was wonderfully quiet. I don't think anything makes me quite as happy as being in a beautiful natural setting with my dogs.
