The last couple days’ freeze is good – it finally kicked us into fall/winter, it killed off our nearby wildfire, it coated everything with a crystalline shimmer of ice.
Now I start thinking about maneuverability. If I am using crutches or a cane, will I slip on ice? Will I exhaust myself trying not to slip on ice? Should I use the wheelchair even though I don’t need it, in order to be safe?
Plus the cold seems to make me sluggish and ineffective. I’ve got to buy some new sweaters; last year’s are all too big (a Good Thing, aside from the having to buy more).
