All week I'd been feeling depressed, apathetic, and lazy. I felt like blaming the weather. It was cold and beginning to be dark all the time, everything was grey and brown and dead and ugly - the trees, the sky, the ground. It had snowed a week ago but it all melted. I felt like the Joel Plaskett lyric, "If it's gonna snow I wish it would start instead of taking three months to break this heart."
Honestly, I just don't see the point of winter without snow. I don't mind the cold or the dark if it there is fresh, pure, white, sparkly, magical snow all over!
But now...it snowed again!
And we are home for the weekend. (in this case home means the place we started).
This morning I took some photos from my parents' house with my new phone.
By the way, this is the new phone I got. I really like it so far, I've had it for about a week. The red on the front is subtly sparkly so Stephen named the phone Christmas Sparkle which makes me like it even more.
It's so beautiful!
and it's not even very cold out! I am very happy.
The snow and maybe coming back to the city and having nothing to do last night (my plans fell through because an out-of-town friend couldn't make it in due to weather) also helped me get back on track with NaNoWriMo. as you can see, I was behind for most of the week but last night I sat down and wrote about 2,000 words, so that helped me catch up a bit. If I can find some more time to write today I will be almost back on track.
Current word count: 13,062
Where I should be by the end of today (not gonna happen): 16, 666
Have a great weekend!
