The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

24 hours within snow falling, I shovel like a conscientious and responsible home owner. I still enjoy and appreciate the sun after a good snow.  So bright, and the silence that snow brings, it’s like a muted or hushed world.  I’m not sick of the snow – but I am getting rather tired of the cold.

So here we are, the end of February, and still in the low 30s, with talk of 60s by next week.  I first heard of the expression “In like a lion, out like a lamb” when I moved to DC, but 13 years later, it totally makes sense.

But I still enjoy walking in it!  Just miss riding my bike.  And scooter.  Come soon, Spring!


Twelfth Night 2015

So this post is about a month overdue. I could not tell you where time is going, but I do know it waits for no one.


As Twelfth Night was on a Monday this year, it was a simplified version of the soirée we’ve all become accustomed to. Moule frites of course, some pasta vongole, and lots of snacky sides comprised the menu this year. And my punch barely packed a punch. Everyone had cleared out at the respectable hour of 9pm, but it was just enough togetherness and warmth to decompress from the holiday season.


Not sure what to do about glow in the dark giveaways next year. Maybe time for a donkey.
