Fa Freddo...It's cold! We woke up to sunny skies and frost on the ground. The temperature was 2c = 34f. Katrina did not sleep well last night, so I was the lucky one who walked Brandon to school in the cold. Honestly, I don't mind the cold weather if the sun is going to be out. I find that I crave sunny days. I definitely think I am affected by the clouds and rain more than I was when I was younger, and I live in two cloudy and rainy places - northern Italy and Corvallis.
I ran a quick morning errand to BiciMania for a couple of things. I bought a water bottle cage, a seat pack and a spare tube for my new bike. When I returned home Katrina joked that the bike was not a lone purchase, but part of a package of goodies.

I took the bus into downtown Monza this afternoon. I was on a missiong to find another part of Brandon's gift for Christmas. I can't mention it because he reads this blog. Anyway, I was amazed at how busy and festive it was downtown. I stopped in a bookstore to look at DVD's. I am looking for NCIS Season 4 and they had it, but they wanted 69 euro! Too much. I did find Elf for 9 euro and bought it. We really like that movie.
