But then we are not complaining. The power gods have been rather nice to our neighborhood and we have enjoyed this unexpected vacation. We have spent our time:
shoveling snow- only when absolutely necessary
reorganizing the kitchen- cheaper than re-modelling.
watching a lot of stuff on Netflix- Anthony Bourdain rocks.
getting to know our neighbors-sharing warm, gooey brownies help.
reading the newspaper completely - many thanks to our newspaper delivery man.
and feeding the flock of little birds that have taken refuge under our deck.
