When the sun comes out, I sit on our balcony amongst the house plants and laundry. It is actually a little warm in here, where the rest of the house is frozen solid.
In Shanghai, there isn’t much insulation and there is only heating in one room. The temperature has been low since the start of November, and it’s very cold in the house. We’ve been very sick a lot since October, with fevers, sniffles, and now coughs that last a long time. It’s so hard to get well when it s so cold and damp.
When the sun is out, I take advantage.
