Vulpes Vulpes and a cloudy day

Today it's a damn cold day outside. I went out for some grocery shopping and it's a cloudy day, sun is very shy today or lazy and didn't wanted to appear for us humans how enjoy his heat every time, along the year. I didn't even mind when is summer time with those very, very hot days, I love that and appreciate those days because I know it doesn't last forever and hate feeling cold.
Today I woke up, in my previous work schedule, so it's pretty early and I did enjoy my morning, and to warm my soul and brain I've been learning about animals, those beautiful creatures that I love so much.
So there we go.
