It’s still winter up here, so much so that I had to dig out the door to the sauna. I needed the exercise so I didn’t mind, but when I looked at the short walk down to the lake, and the amount and ice and snow, I threw in the towel. Wouldn’t have been safe anyway, dipping in the lake in the night with all that whisky in my belly.

Few things make you feel so clean as a hot sauna, and then rubbing your body in icy snow. Suffice to say, I slept well last night, despite the bed situation.
