This Memorial Day we had a range of weather, a hard rain, with storms to the west, muggy, then hot and muggy with a bright sun. Then hot, and in the evening back down to the 50s. It was a beautiful day.
A friend and I watched a movie at the cinema on Harbor Drive. After the movie we walked by the Lakewalk near the hotels and the canal. When she first invited me to for walking along the Lakewalk, I didn’t want to because of the sub-zero temperature. But the more I thought about the more I would like to say I braved the cold. We both worse several layers of clothing. I put some toe warmers in my boots, while still in the cinema lobby. The toe warmers contain iron powder,water, salt, activated charcoal and vermiculite. (Someday I will have to research them to see if they are environmentally-friendly.) The toe warmers stay warm for 6 hours. So I now have them in my slippers as I post this. I’m not sure what the tempature was down at Canal Park, but it was very cold, my friend wanted to turn back for warm to Amazing Grace Bakery and Coffeeshop before I did. I credit the toe warmers for keeping me warm.
