I stand before you, an object lesson. A cautionary tale. A living, breathing, coughing, sneezing, feverish exhibit of the adage, "Be careful what you wish for." We have plans for the evening, a friend's birthday party, but the weather is so dismal that I dared say, "Ugh; I wish we didn't have to go out in this." Not 20 minutes later, I was hit with this misery like it was a runaway train. The express train to Miseryville. There was nothing of "feeling something coming on." No, "is that a tickle in my throat?" This leaped out of a dark alley and mugged me.
My only hope is that it passes just as quickly as it arrived. Good grief.

We've gotten about 8 inches of snow here, and though the weather report says we should be done, it's still coming down. Everyone I know is complaining on Facebook about the terrible weather.
Secretly? I'm delighted. Yes, it's awful for driving. Yes, it makes walking the dog much more of a challenge. Yes, we have been hunkered down and hibernating all weekend.
But honestly, I love it. I'd love it more if it snowed 2 feet. I love me some real weather. It feels like a bit of an adventure, even though I'm warm and snug in my house, safe from the actual weather.
I have my front curtains open (something that never happens here) to let in the light and to watch the snow fall. Yes, in a while I will have to bundle up and fire up the snow blower. But I'm okay with that. Let it snow!

I signed up for my first triathlon for next summer today. I am aiming at doing at least one Olympic length, but this one is early in the season, so I signed up for sprint length. I did two last year, and I have to say that everyone at the events was awesome and supportive. I was close to the last person in both times, and people were friendly and encouraging. There were people of all sizes, and everyone was just happy to be with other people who enjoyed this crazy activity! I'm looking forward to it!

Once again I'm finding myself sucked into the computer for far too many hours. This year I want to read more books and do more crafts, not just stare at this screen all evening. It's a real time-sink for me, and I have to get away from that.
The problem is that when being on the computer is also your livelihood, it's really easy to let the hours of work and the hours of checking social media kind of mush together. I am probably going to have to actually shut off the social meda sites for certain hours of the day in order to get myself away from the computer in a timely fashion.
Today, I have very little work and lots of stuff to do around the house: take down the tree, put together the exercise bike, get the snow blown so I can go pick up my CSA. So I'm running through my Spark time now, then getting busy.
