It snowed again last night. I went for a walk amongst those sort of flakes that fall like bits of cotton candy, and in the cone of light dropping out of each lamppost seem to drift and swirl in a surreal four-dimensional ballet of brownian physics.
And speaking of bits and pieces flying everywhere… We’re nearly done building our jigsaw puzzle. It has taken quite a long time — in jigsaw terms — but another couple hours of work should do the trick. I am getting tired of hunching over the board though.
And speaking of not getting enough exercise… There is officially more Christmas baking in this house than can safely be consumed before the holidays end. In fact, we could exclusively eat holiday treats for the next week and not require any other food to satisfy our appetites. That’s apart from the unhealthy bit, of course. That said, we’ll need to steal a few folks recipes for our own baking next year. Yum!
And speaking of scribbling notes and pillaging ideas… I recently had a few thoughts cross my mind and gel into substance with regard to this particular writing project. I’ve been looking for threads to tie through the metaverse I’m constructing, and I discovered another interesting idea. But I’m not going to share it. That would ruin the surprise.
And speaking of ruining the magic… I’ve pretty much had my fill of holiday music now. Two or three weeks is usually plenty. We can stop playing it now. Thanks.
And speaking of thinking into the new year… You may have noticed that I updated the template for this blog. In fact, unless you read these entries exclusively as an RSS feed — and this isn’t some ancient, archived post — you’re currently looking at the new template. I have tried it on a couple operating systems in a variety of browsers — and it seems to work a-okay. But if it goes wonky for you, let me know. It’s still kinda BETAish.
And speaking of blog archives… I was reminded of my sister’s driving adventures (recounted in this two-year-old post) while flipping through my archives this morning.
And speaking of family, driving, and the like… it’s that time of year again, as of today. You know what I’m talking about. Now, where did I leave my rum-and-nog?
