Still Here

Well, I got nothing. It's cold and grey and a bit damp and working its way up to frost or snow. Good weather for cooking comfort foods (bread, chocolate-orange-pecan cake, bran muffins, chicken soup), and for reading good novels (Never Let Me Go, The Echo Makers), and for watching odd but interesting movies (Jack Goes Boating, Ride the High Country). Otherwise, it's a bit like being a hibernating bear that's inexplicably wakened way too early.

Maybe next week we will become more lively. My 74th birthday arrives on Monday (I'm the oldest living member of my family, so no one is left who remembers the original event) and perhaps I can rise to the occasion.
