Sunday was indeed sun day. After the recent vicious bite of winter storms, the gloomy clouds parted and a blazing blue sky made the Sunday snow-scape sparkle.
I ventured outside to snap a few photos - but the sun was so blinding that I couldn't see a damn thing in the lens. It was all blind guesswork (kinda like the story of my life).
Nothing is more boring than snow photos and weather reports. I promise that my next post will be incredibly intriguing and breathlessly interesting - - which is what you always expect from me.
Today (Tuesday, perhaps?) is cloudy and foggy. Slightly warmer temperatures are making the icicles drip and the snowdrifts sag.
So what have I been doing?
An alarmingly lot of nothing. I have many genuinely important things to do, but my motivation has stalled.

So far the water pipes didn't freeze - - like last year - -and so far I haven't fallen on the ice and injured my spine - - like last year. I still have an enormous amount of pain in my spine..... but it's unbecoming to bitch.
I made a turkey last Sunday -
clarification: I cooked one in the oven.
It is delicious. I plan to make soup with the leftovers- - if I ever get the courage to drive to town to buy fresh vegetables.
Since this post is getting annoyingly boring, I'll commence with the photos.

Ah, Jon, even when you're boring - you're fascinating.
Hey, that's my beer talking.
