The Winds of Thor Are Blowing Cold

At the first sign of winter I get this thick, heavy heart.  I feel there is absolutely no way I'll be able to make it through even two days of the season, let alone 3 months.  The holidays, the emotional marathon, the lack of sun, the extreme cold, ice, gray, bleak.  I can't even think of it without getting a sick thud in my gut.  But that's the same way I feel about hikes, Mondays or anything difficult really.  I  start on the trail and right away think to head back, that its a bad idea.  But after a bit, my legs gets warmed up and my muscles loosen, all the sudden I realize that it doesn't get worse, it gets much easier, even enjoyable.  I love walking through terrain and for lengths of time! And I will get through another winter as well, maybe even have some great times.  Or I won't but either way, it'll be fine.
Braised Pork Country Ribs with roasted potatoes and carrots over Creamy Polenta was the first stick to your ribs meal of the season.  Super easy and anything that gets to be in the oven for a period of time always adds to the excitement.
