This last week and a half has been more taxing than I'd prefer. It seems that there are more downs than ups as of late. The weather hasn't helped one bit today, bringing ridiculously destructive wind and cold. Good old Zippy caught me off guard, gave me a fright and then a chuckle. I would totally love an hour of living like a cat. Some grocery store daffodils remind me that Spring must be around the corner.
