snow is not exactly rare here in the northeast, but the last couple of years we've had two uncharacteristically mild winters in a row-- which some of us quite liked, actually; WHY are we changing back??!-- so perhaps we're a bit out of practice. something that *IS* rare here at our house is a snow day on which even intrepid husband jeff doesn't care to venture out. we only got maybe five inches or so of the white stuff overnight, but it was on top of some ice, and accompanied this morning by strong winds, and for once that worthy fellow decided to stay at home. i'm a chicken, myself, so i was ALWAYS laying low today, but it's kind of fun to have company! he's clearing the driveway at present, and even from this distance i believe i can hear the word, "snowblower" being muttered occasionally; i suspect home depot will be seeing a little more of our money before winter's end! :)
inside the house it's a lot warmer, so this seems like the perfect time to do a little tinkering here at the old blogstead. i had made a new header over the holidays, and today i finally fitted the words on* in a way i like, so here it is:
*first rule of header-making: plan the design around your blog's title, rather than trying to fit it in at the end. it's a ZILLION times easier, and will probably look better. this is a very important point that i almost always ignore and almost always regret ignoring. ah well. c'est la vie creative, non?
