Happy Monday, friends.
Some things and stuffs:
1. Snow Day
We had a lovely snow day on Saturday.
The only thing that kept my sanity from falling off of the thread upon which it hung was this:
(I don't do well trapped indoors for long periods of time with nothing to do.)
But then Lil Bro#1 got out of work early (and I got lots of exercise shoveling Dad's truck out of the driveway so Dad could go get him), and Drummerboy came over for dinner, as he was also going mental stuck indoors all day. (The roads were pretty clean by then, because we don't mess around in Orange County when it snows.) We watched a movie and worked on the puzzle until like midnight.*
Oddly enough, even though Drummerboy is closer to my parents' age than mine (He's only 5 years younger than Stepmom...) there was no awkwardness.
Drummerboy and I had a nice lunch after church. Then we took a scenic drive up to New Paltz, where I acquired my newest toy from a poor left-handed art student.
I'm hoping it will be easier than the mandolin, which is my arch-nemesis and will soon be handed over to someone else for it to torment (I sold it on craigslist).
3. I'm getting nerdier by the minute.
I got another new toy today.
I'm not really sure exactly when or how this started, but since around Thanksgiving, we have had a puzzle in progress at all times at both Mumsy's house and Dad's. At Mumsy's, the cats try to *help* by running off with puzzle pieces that are subsequently lost forever. I presume they do this to make the puzzle assembly more exciting.
4. Ludovico Einaudi's music is really really good and y'all should go listen to it immediately.
Hope the rest of you in the region survived the snow! I heard there were ice bergs floating down the flooded streets of some part of New Jersey....
