winter shades

in marked contrast to previous winters, where i was able to run outside very regularly throughout december and january, we’ve been experiencing a cold winter in southeastern michigan. yesterday, it snowed all day, and by evening the world was lovely and blue; today, it is shades of black and white, the wind is sharp and bitter cold.

i was scheduled to work today, but i took one look outside and decided another vacation day was in order.

i shall return to the real world tomorrow. in the meantime, i’ll be here in bed with a diana wynne jones book, and the new york philharmonic on detroit public television. the kittens like classical music and get drowsy to the sound of a good mellow trombone.
