Warm Feelings on a Cold Night
It started snowing around 8 am this morning and it’s still coming down – we’ve got about 4 inches so far. But soon the snow will stop and with the clear skies will come the cold temperatures. By cold I mean that the highs for the next few days MIGHT make it over 0 by…
This morning I had the full intention of getting out and getting my photo assignment done, and going for a nice long bike ride. However, there was this little furry person who really didn’t like that idea. He’s decided to hold me down with force by laying down on me every time I sit down.…
