The cold has fled and the rain has settled in. I haven't seen the sun in three days. My shadow is missing. Bleak and gray describe it best - and I must have a streak of groundhog in me, or bear, because all I want to do is hibernate until spring come back again!

I took the dogs for a walk in the drizzle today - they don't mind if it's rainy or sunny - Auguste's tail wagged the whole way. Nothing much else to report - school started again, the house is quiet during the day, and I've started work again (keeps me busy, thank goodness, or I might start really cleaning the house or something!)
I read 'The Pyramid' by Henning Menkall and loved it. Another great mystery book by an incredible author.

So I'm not the only one hibernating, eh? Our cold weather is still here unfortunately and bitter, bitter cold. what I wouldn't give to be in Key West right now.

I kind of like that hibernating feeling

it's been frigid here in NE Ohio, too, so cold that when I collected eggs from my hens this afternoon, 2 eggs were cracked.

I've never liked my shadow trailing me. I think it's buried somewhere in the snow.

Love the pic of the church. It has such a nice Mediaeval atmosphere. :)

I enjoy the calm and quiet of a light drizzle or soft rain.

After tons of snow and then rain and then snow and then rain and now very cold, threatening to snow...gosh! when will it end> And the bad news is, the groundhog showed himself today and predicted six more weeks of it.
