After being stuck in Sault Ste. Marie last week for 3 extra days due to stormy snowy weather, it struck me that my enforced idleness would be the perfect time to make good on my decision to find an outdoor cardio activity for the winter, because working out on an indoor bike is just plain BORING. Because of some back problems, my physiotherapist says no jogging, running, skiing because it jiggles my neck too much, and she said snowshoes would do me good.
So today, armed with my early Christmas present, I bravely set out to conquer the elements and pay a visit to the Northern Emporium, where I could satisfy my inner child with plenty of holiday treats and gifts, and my adult self could enjoy some great conversation with all the people that either are involved with this enterprise or just like to stop by to chat and see what’s new.
I am happy to report that I made it to the Emporium before collapsing, but thankfully Tara Hart was there with a glass of red to deaden the muscle pain and some yummy sesame/pumpkin seed crackers made by Helga Moore to give me some energy. Helga has amazing bath and beauty products for sale at the shop and her products are free of harmful additives.
Happy Winter Wonderland to all who are blessed to live in the Great White North, and warm wishes coupled with sincere sympathy for those of you who can’t enjoy a good blizzard now and then. If the roads are closed, now I’m still good to go.
