True to the forecast, it was cold this morning. I was out of bed, showered and dressed in a hurry. A brisk walk to the office with a stop at the doughnut shop seemed in order, followed by climbing 6 floors instead of taking the elevator would work of the calories.
First thing in the office was to turn on the coffee pot and boot-up the computer. With my first cup of java for the day, and the doughnut half eaten I took time to look out the window, snow still on the ledges, ice in the alley. Then I looked to see the writing challenge for the day – I need some inspiration.
