0.9 inches of snow with ice beneath, no power outages, stayed warm, wore turtleneck and roomy pullover with cowl neck and loose 3/4 sleeves to shop, shucked out of pullover in the bathmat aisle, displayed no modesty whatsoever, bought cheap watch strictly on the basis of how big the numbers are, bought plush bathmat for cats to sleep on downstairs, cats said thanks but no thanks upstairs is warmer, totted up writing assignments and despaired of ever catching up, cooked dinner, wrote several e-mails, all of them vastly more interesting than this post, rued decision to post daily, posted anyway.
