Happy Solstice!

I am so thankful the days will get longer from here on out. My solar watch hasn't worked for days. And there's warm weather to look forward to ... in, you know, March.

We weren't snowed in today, but it was too cold to do much. Our sliding glass door only has one pane due to the Unfortunate Weed Wacker Incident of '08, and there's a layer of ice on the inside of the glass. (Yes, yes, I know we should have replaced it before now. I know. This is going to be a project for next spring.) The last time that happened to me was in the dorms in college. So, anyway, since it was too cold to do much else, we cooked meals and watched movies on TV and snuggled under blankets and had a fire in the fireplace. I'm thinking about doing a little baking just because. So it's been a good day.

Still have a few Christmas gifts to buy tomorrow morning. Then I'm meeting some girlfriends for lunch, which I'm really looking forward to. And then I'm heading to the gym tomorrow night. If I play my cards right I might even manage to sneak some writing in.

Happy Solsice back at you!

I'm snow bound as well--though I did go to work this morning. At least there wasn't much traffic on the roads:)

Well, it's relative. It can be 50 degrees or so here in late March if it's not, you know, snowing. Stupid weather. I've decided when I'm Rich and Famous I'm going to summer in Northern Wisconsin and winter in southern Texas. Austin sounds great right about now.

Yeah, I know. It's more south than here, though, and in my mind that's good enough. :)

Happy Solstice! I didn't even realize it.

As for the cold - do your nose hairs freeze instantly when you walk outside? And you want to risk this to go to the gym?!

Temperature is definitely relative. It's been in the low 50's here and rainy (low 40's at night) and I'm freezing! (Don't kill me for saying that.)

P.S. Found out about Phoebe from you first.

Ah, 50 degrees. I dream about 50 degree weather.

It was sad about Phoebe. Jules held it together pretty well.
