I hope everybody out there is staying warm. We certainly were a few days ago -- even pulled out the kiddie pool -- but the January summer is over.
(We didn't actually fill the pool ourselves -- that's frozen rainwater.)
So what do we do when the roads are frozen over and GIAL is closed for three days? Queena stays home and writes a huge sociolinguistics paper. I stay home and take black-and-white pictures of the kids. Dorie stays home and wears a scarf and carries her teddy bear around and licks whipped cream off the beater.
James stays home and practices his spoon skills.
[Friday morning P.S. -- It snowed even more! I think I love winter in Dallas.]
