Building a habit... (Vol. 12)

[Semi-standard copy-paste intro.]
A while ago I wrote about the concept of Morning Coffee Walk - a habit I'm trying to pick up in order to get myself going and moving before starting any other daily activities. The rules of this game are simple: get dressed (weather-appropriately), grab a mugful of hot beverage and head out; do not return until the mug is empty. 

Over the time the Drag-Your-Ass-Out-There game has morphed somewhat. With more daylight and more forgiving weather, it has become easier to just stroll out any time so the first-thing-in-the-morning part has lost its urgency. The more forgiving weather also means that oftentimes I get to exploit the back yard for the coffee-under-the-open-skies part. So, while the "game's" purpose remains, its name - technically - does not always apply. In any case, here are some highlights from today's walk.
