Happy Valentines Day

I’m sitting in a coffee house, just to get out of the house to write this morning. I needed to get away from the quilt, thinking about the quilt, or you-tube-ing techniques for the quilt. So here I am, writing about the quilt. HaHa. But on to other things. It is snowing again. I got up this morning so excited because yesterday the temperature was 0 degrees first thing, and this morning it was 18. Then it started snowing. By the time I left the house it was down to 14 degrees. Why are we going the wrong direction?

Did a little networking this morning. I’m looking for a cover artist and I’m trying to get the ball rolling. Three contacts so far. I have an idea for the cover, but it’s just a starting place for someone with talent to take it from there. What a process!

Happy Valentines Day to all who like hearts. (That’s not me.) I don’t know why I have such an aversion to the symbol, but I do. Oh well. The only place it doesn’t bother me is in a deck of cards.

A nightly game of ping-pong with my house-mate has become almost a therapeutic balm to get out of my headspace. It’s also great hand-eye coordination. Since the weather is far from warm enough for tennis, this will have to do. It almost makes up for the fact that for the last three days of bitter temperatures, I have not walked. Almost. The wind is blowing hard, so I probably won’t walk today either. Poor excuse, I know, but the wind makes me cold.

Woke up to another two inches to shovel. The good thing was the snow was light and fluffy so the leaf blower took care of the walks and porch, and the sun came out and took care of the rest. My kind of snowfall.
