Snow! And lots of it. Everyone feeling a bit post Christmas blue around here. Kids have gone off sledding and I will go for a walk and join them in a moment, but right now it's quite peaceful in my quiet house with the snow still swirling outside.
For dinner tonight, making the most of what is left over: mixing chicken, bacon, shrimp, rice, tomatoes, olives into some kind of crazy version of paella.
Over the last few days I've become totally absorbed in the book I am reading, What is the what by Dave Eggers. I think it may be the best book I have read in quite a while. Anyone reading anything great post-holiday?

Hey, snow is all around us, isn't it? How cozy.

Same here, left overs for dinner from christmas. Gotta love that.

That book is great, or so I heard and it's next on my list. Right now, I am just finishing up " say you're one of them" by Uwen Akpan. Great book too.
Enjoy the stillness and quiet.
