It snowed some yesterday. Enough to coat the cars and rooftops but easily cleared from the pavements. Unfortunately the grit and salt are not pleasant to Charlie's paws so I bought him some Mushers Secret - frankly it has the texture of badgers balm but let's hope it does something to help his tender toes. The snow seems to get stuck between his toes which must make walking uncomfortable as he stops periodically to have you clear it. My gloves must be filthy with all this but fortunately they are black and show nothing.
We walked along the river before the snow came and it was icy but bracing. I feel that this hour long walks in icy weather fully entitle me to spend the rest of the day idling (yesterday was Fate of the Furious watching) and eating heartily.
Tonight, we are going to a comedy club to see in the New Year. My natural inclination is to spend the new year fast asleep in my own bed but I felt I should put on some effort for being in NYC so off we go.
