We’ve had some snow recently, and when snow falls, people rush outside to build a snowman before it melts away. This one’s lost his vision, poor guy; note his "eyeball" in the left corner.
Time off is great. Doing things on our own schedule – yes! Went to a movie, "2 Days in Paris," which we give a big ‘thumbs up’, regardless of what some critics say. Some of them sound like they just "skimmed", rather than actually watched it…
Also went out for a fantastic meal last night: seared scallops, sushi, wine. Light snow falling. Wonderful company. Excellent food. Perfect.
Tried to get a look at Mars last night, but it was cloudy at first, and later, it was out of my line of sight. C and I did take a drive around to check out the holiday lights in the neighborhood. Plenty of red there, mixed in with the other holiday colors. All glowing magically on lawns of snow.

The Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important to them: there ought to be as many for love.
Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into, the mind.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
