January Thaw

And the rain came and washed away the ice and it rained some more and now there's mud everywhere. So it goes, the January Thaw. Temps in the 40's and 50's this week and maybe even some sunshine tomorrow.

School back in session, Erin back to work. Laundry to put away as soon as the ibuprofen kicks in and my headaches goes away. Think I should at least get out of the house though there's nowhere really to go.

Reading a good book which may keep me tied to my chair, "The Japanese Lover" buy Isabel Allende. Had to force myself to finish the last book, "The Appointment." Although the text was quite poetic, the story went nowhere...boring.

The husband is in his woodshop  making bowls which are quite lovely.

I snagged this one because I love purple. It's made from purpleheart, a tropical species.

So, I get a while all alone in the house, nice.
