Today is clearly taking on a winter theme. I think it’s appropriate since the weather in DC frigid, and it will be even colder in Buffalo where we’re celebrating Thanksgiving. But the cold weather is not all bad. Sure, it’s made my skin uncomfortably dry, and it gets dark very early, but we also get snow and the opportunity to use our new fireplace! On Sunday night, after my friends left town, MJD lit a fire and we sprawled out in the living room, reading, drinking tea, and eating leftover Crumb cupcakes that J and P brought. We were so relaxed and warm by the fire that now I can’t wait for the next cold day.
