We’re currently in St. Louis staying with Chris’ family, and this week we’re house sitting while his folks are on vacation.
Between recovering from the long physical hours of a month working at amazon.com, coming directly into family holidays and then unseasonally cold temperatures and snow – we’ve reached a week of nomadic stasis.
While we had intentions of getting out and exploring the city and connecting with local friends – we’ve not really left the house much. And it has indeed been nice to be staying in a traditional house during this very cold weather, we’re quite thankful for the timing. It’s proven to be quite a bit of effort to keep the Oliver warm enough when the temperatures dip down into single digits. We’re definitely looking forward to moving on to warmer temperatures in a couple weeks.
Perhaps this is how nomads have a vacation? We stay put for a bit and chill, and take a break from exploring. At any rate, while our week isn’t full of exciting new adventures, we consider any day we’re doing exactly what we want – to be awesome!
