Cold Monday

Early March, and it seems normal that it is very cold today, though warming later this week (we’ll see). Wisconsin winters. Karl and I went to the Oostburg Public Library, and then to Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly. Another year, I bought a winter coat for ten dollars at Bethesda Thrift Store in Sheboygan. The coat is too big, and perfect to wear with winter clothes.
