There are times when I wish I was more like my husband.
What trait of his would I choose if I could? Maybe his hacky sack playing, generous nature, humility, his ability to communicate concepts and ideas or his quick math skills? I should pick the latter two since I am the one who is teaching our children, but no, what I really envy about him is the fact he can be comfortable in all kinds of weather.
It could be 100 degrees or below zero and he remains completely unaffected. The man wears only a fleece and t-shirt 9 months out of the year.
In Hong Kong when everyone scurried to the shade or
the aircon, (what they call it there)
he would climb Pat Sin Leng.
How hot does it get in HK?
I checked the weather, today in Michigan it got up to a warm sunny 55, it was a mild 84 in HK
|This was Shane and Shanda's visit, which was actually November. Not the middle of summer, but it is still not a mild 65 degrees.|
In Hong Kong the humidity can reach 90%.
If it was his only chance to go, he would hike it that hot.
|The smile on Nathan's face once he realized that he and Elliot just happened to be standing the same way.|
I include it because, I really like the picture and it has something to do with hiking.
Here comes the big difference between the two of us.
Hot days and sweltering heat, I won't necessarily climb a mountain, but I like it warm and I try not to complain much. Cold cold weather, I still try not to complain but my teeth chatter while my mouth is closed.
Not many mountains to hike here in Michigan, so Nathan decides to climb a frozen waterfall.
|This is his friend who went with him, but you get the idea of what it looks like|
Michigan Ice Fest
|Getting ready to go up.|
|He also likes biking. How do you bike in the snow? With fat tires.|
Wearing only a longsleeve shirt.
Look at those little kids.
Jane is almost as tall as me now, how did that happen?
