Ahhh. This has been a glorious weekend of down time. No phone calls, clean house, an unopened calendar, a fabulous dvd in a red envelope, knitting time, walking time and that indescribable recharging that I find essential. Like Antaeus, the son of the sea god, Poseidon, who was impossible to defeat so long as his feet were touching the earth, I need to have quiet, private, down time here at home on a regular basis or I grow cranky, tense, and unhappy.
Alas, the older I get, the more I become like my father - and his mother before him. I believe we are the sort with weak batteries and can't go too far from the power source. I love to visit friends and I like my traveling vacations, but east or west, home is truly best for this gal.
The weather dot com guys have been teasing us all weekend with the promise of snow, albeit mixed with rain. So far, all we got was the red sky in the morn (all my photos were failures) with the sharp weather front demarcation line somewhere to the east. They're still hinting that snow will fall around 9 o'clock but I will believe that when I see it.
And so - as it is Monday - and as there is no snow yet on my lawn - I will go get ready for work. Ta.
