Are you tired of the color white?

That is a common problem for many who live in this part of the world. Especially this time of the year. It's been 2 or 3 months of snow and it looks like another month to go before we get a reprieve.

I almost didn't crawl out of my hole today. There are 5 to 6 fresh inches of white on the ground with another 5 promised for today and tonight. Then it will taper off to 2 or 3 inches tomorrow. All that snow isn't exactly a great incentive to get me out of the door.

Things needed to be done though. First order of business was to get some medications that were prescribed by my doc. Next was to get quarters for laundry. I have a library book that is almost due. Since I haven't scratched the surface of the book, that will get renewed.

But the fact of the matter is that I had to get out and among people today. Yesterday and a good part of Wednesday was spent inside frying my brains out. I had to get out to put the brakes on things. I had to make sure that everything that had to be paid, had to be bought or had to be hidden away was taken care of.

So, I renew the book. Then I'll do an online transfer of funds to my sister. After that I'll hop onto the trolley bus and head back up the hill and after getting off, walk the few blocks to my house. Then it'll be hot chocolate and cookies, then time for a nap.

Seriously, hot chocolate and oatmeal cookies.

Sometimes it's just a simple thing like that that goes a long way towards making me feel normal.

Well, nearly normal.
