Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed. The mentioned quote is one of many.

Quick side note about yesterday and Tom Brady. He made another step towards the Super Bowl LV final and will play with his team against the Green Bay Packers in the Conference Championships - January 24, Sunday. Will be an away game at Lambeau Field, with cold temperatures, something he was used to for 20 years 🤔. Forecast for Sunday is -3 Degrees Celsius and snow 👍.

Picture taken today morning from the balcony into the garden.

I had to take the snow picture quickly in the morning, as the weather forecast promised rain and higher temperatures for the afternoon and the coming days.

So only a short time challenge for the palm tree with below zero night temperatures and snow. We have a saying "only the tough get into the garden", the palm tree will manage. Spain was struggling with the most snow in the past 50 years lately. They had not enough snow ploughs to even clean the main streets in the capital, another way to keep people at home during the COVID-19 lockdown 😎.

Only 3 weeks left until the next NFL Super Bowl is coming up, Super Bowl LV will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on February 7, 2021. Tom Brady (the GOAT - Greatest of All Times) is still in the race with his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After 20 years in cold New England he wanted to finish his career in sunny Florida and potentially win another Super Bowl title, this time in the own stadium. We will see tonight in the game against New Orleans Saints. Would be another step for Brady to underpin the GOAT fame and glory.

 "A lot of times I find that people who are blessed with the most talent don't ever develop that attitude, and the ones who aren't blessed in that way are the most competitive and have the biggest heart." -- Tom Brady, American - Football Player Born: August 3, 1977

Just in case you are still working on your 2021 resolutions or did give up on it already, some adjustmemt ideas 🤩.

It started snowing some minutes ago and the forecast for tomorrow is snow as well, maybe we can do a snow walk on Sunday. This opportunity does not exist so often during Winter time in our area of Germany, we are too close to a river.

Enjoy your Sunday and hopefully you have some great Winter weather as well 🤔.

“The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure. You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -- Roy T. Bennett
