Picture was taken early morning, when I jumped out the house to pick up some documents from friend, that is kind enough to drive by in this tough winter conditions.
I have read recently very interesting article in NYT about people who live in chilly conditions - hop over to not miss it.
After moving 6 years ago from the city to countryside, low temperatures was something most difficult to get used to - chill sneaking everywhere is so different from overheated city appartments, but I guess it is better for health and beauty.
I remember a story about very famouse and very beautiful Polish general's wife (General Zajaczek), living in XIX century. Her beauty and number of young lovers was legandary. When she was asked, how being over 70 she is able to keep such great condition and maintain her beauty, she used to say that she always sleeps in cold bedroom with buckets filled with ice placed under her bed.
Ha? Can you beat that?
