Brrr~ we got a cold snap and several inches of snow yesterday. Snow and cold makes me pout and unproductive. I’d rather go to sleep Halloween night and not wake up until mid March in a cranky stupor to complain about spring winds. It even snowed in Houston! I didn’t think that was possible. My neighbor (who rents the space behind my office) makes me deservedly ashamed of myself; she’s a mechanic and outside working on cars every day. You know, the typical lazy Mexican. Here’s a photo of her, her baby is due next week. I fret because they don’t have much; I’m collecting donations of essentials (which can be mailed to my business address). She has another child, a sensitive, quiet and kind boy about seven years old. He feeds the birds when I’m away. Christmas will be grim for them this year.
As usual, here are this week’s entries from the archives. Here’s to hoping your weekend is worry free and comfortable.
