winter has arrived in my apartment. it is brisk in here to say the least; there is no heating. beyond the obvious cold of fingers and toes, it is the unexpected coldness of random household objects that chills me even more. the body lotion is icy, not a welcome feeling after warming up in the shower. socks ignore their duty, cold to the touch of a bare foot. a cold spoon will cool off a hot sip of soup, a mug of tea will too quickly find its way to room temperature.
i'm fighting this by spending lots of time in bed. the only warm spot in the house.
