Let’s first start with – Happy Birthday Nat! Last night, we were all stuck in the house. Jeremy managed to make blueberry/lemon bars with ingredients on hand and we celebrated Nat’s 27th birthday. We all agreed that 27 is the best age to be. Forever and forever.
I’m now exhausted. My enthusiasm for snow is at its nadir. I just finished my second round of shoveling. Jeremy is out for his third round of shoveling. It’s not yet 2pm. My arms! So sore. My will! So puny. I’m trying out audiobooks while I shovel. Listening to Kate Atkinson’s Life after Life which is also sapping my brainpower because it is about this woman who dies over and over again and relives her life again and again and I keep losing my place because I start daydreaming or a neighbor asks a question and I flub the controls on the app (which then makes it skip forward or stumble back) and then I can’t quite decide where I am in the book because the same story is told over and over again with small differences.
It’s a beauty though. Mostly because the power stayed on and we are warm in our house.
