I bought a big boy camera for myself because I decided that I needed to spoil myself just because I could. That and the year kinda sorta sucked and it definitely sucked in a bad way. My oldest was curious about how her Dad was able to afford it and the answer she got back was “Don’t worry about it. You have enough to worry about with two growing kids. Dad was taking care of himself a long, long time ago.” I know she didn’t like the response but sometimes I think the right answer is one that essentially tells you that maybe some things are best left for others to fret about.
It’s cold out there tonight. I know it’s cold (and that icky bad white stuff is also coming down too) because some knucklehead forgot to check the bird bath when he got home for work. Yeh, it was more than a tad bit low for water depth due to the wind and the cold, dry air. I ran out for like all of 30 seconds or so but it sure felt like it was a lot longer. The cold penetrated to the bone since I didn’t have a coat on.
So the day is almost over as I sit here and listen to the wind blow outside. It even sounds cold as it rattles the house. I think tomorrow will be a potato soup day to warm the cockles of my heart.
