Last Sunday in Christmas: Next Stop, Valentine's Day

Sunday, January 9, 2011. Cold, over a foot of snow on the ground, and more in the forecast. I don't mind a bit. This is a lot better than an open winter. Besides, the snow's quite photogenic.

My household's settling back into a normal routine after the holidays. Twitches, #1 daughter's kitten, was here for an extended visit - #1 daughter, too, of course.

Twitches the kitten, and wrapping paper. January 3, 2011.

And that gave me an excuse to put a photo of a kitten under wrapping paper in this entry.

Like many other houses in town, we've got an assortment of icicles hanging from the eaves. They're not doing the roof any particular good: but they are picturesque. One, by our kitchen window, had melted near its base until the icicle was hanging by a very long, narrow, strand.

The city crews have been keeping streets clear, for which I'm duly grateful. I drove around the southwest part of Sauk Centre this week, something I haven't done for a while.

There's nothing quite like a moose head over the door. January 6, 2011.

We wound up the Christmas season at Our Lady of the Angels church today: which brings me more-or-less up to date.

If I don't have something to write Wednesday, I'll see you in a week.
