Complications Set In

It's been one of those days where not everything quite made it to the finish line. Ach, that's life, there are days like that.

But the drapes are up in the bedroom, the clothes are put away, my Greg dress came and it's perfect and Day 10 of the Hi Pro Glow is nearly done. Things are coordinated for tomorrow, and there's a long list of things to do already waiting.

Had a nice chat with my brother, for once. He's okay. We caught up and it was good. I miss him, the big creep.

The Beest has been sleeping a lot the last 3 days. She's not off her oats, isn't gakking and seems fine. Perhaps she's just gotten comfortable. She slept all the time at Strider's house. I got a couple of good pix of her today on my new digicam.

Speaking of Strider, she's on vacation and I hope she's having fun. She got outta New England just in time!

I think there's something about the snow and winter that tires one out. I'm entirely dragging and it's only 6:30. It's like I could sleep for a week, and not care what I miss or what doesn't get done.

The Shire is under that blanket of quiet that comes with a good snowfall. Voices don't carry, the homes themselves change acoustics, insulated and snug. I think it's early to bed tonight with comforter and book.

Sounds like a plan. We just got home from the wee mans beaver group and I`m thinking the same thing. A cup of chicken soup, a comforter and me.

I can appreciate the hollow feeling of getting not as much done as you'd like, but you seem to have enough snow to make up for it!

So you finally got your snow. I heard that another one may be coming your way from Chicago tomorrow. We may get some of it also, but I am hoping it will be more to the north of us. The cold will definitely be with us though.

Curling up in a warm comforter with a good book sounds like the right approach. Being a captive of the snow can be a good thing.

The eerie silence of the snow is one of the things I love. The pristine whiteness, too. That's about it. You can have the cold, the frozen toes, the shoveling, the ugly mess at the sides of the road as it melts, etc. A cup of tea and a good book sounds like just the thing. Enjoy!
