“Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
When I went outside yesterday to get some groceries into the house, that was the operative word. I love snowstorms, but the one thing I enjoy more is the opportunity for a snow day. There’s the lack of the Day Job, the potential Internet outage – had one in the area already – and the fact that one can just simply relax does count for a lot.
Considering that I do not have the space to take down the A/C, I end up with a permanent, perpetual draft in my room. I sealed the cracks the best that I could with duct tape, and put a towel over the top, but it’s still utterly freezing. The surprise of the electric blanket was…well, definitely a surprise. Michelle – I have to thank you again, especially after roasting under it all through the night. I don’t know how the hell I could’ve done without this before. Thus, they’re my Recommendation Du Jour for cold, snowy, wintry days.
Seriously, kids, if you’re in any place in the world that gets even a lick of snow, this is an essential.
My plan for the next few hours is to brainstorm, and possibly edit, and possibly continue in getting back in touch/reacquainting with Books 3 and 4. So busy was I in recent time that I need this reconnection. That and the character of Corwin Jacobs (Book 5) is still undefined. So the story needs to continue to evolve. And, with a lovely pomegranate as my snack du jour, I am more than happy to delve right back into that universe of adventure.
So, until next time…
