Baby, It's Cold Outside

But I vowed to make the most of it, so that's what I'm doing.

Bonus: My sister came to visit for a few days, and she likes to go sledding with many young children.

Cory and I enjoyed a free hour at the coffee shop while the kids were at their church program. I found a couple of new recipes I'm going to try. A group of hooligans stumbled in and one of them dropped his meth pipe...cops arrived...handcuffs were brandished...a picture was knocked off the wall in a scuffle...you know, a regular night in Amish country.

I saw the dreamiest sky a few days back. Greyish purple with a broad stripe of Sea blue, all of which was bathed in pinkish, goldy, glimmery light.

I think there's a meaningful analogy hidden in that sky for us Winter weary souls...

...but I'm wrapped burrito-style in my blue fleece blanket and I just ate half a pink grapefruit and watched 30 Rock with Cute Maintenance Boy and I just don't care to dig that deep.


Head on over to The Inspired Room to see how others are coping with Winter!
