The frozen shaking tundra turned me upside down on my head these past few days and I ended up staying home from work today (Lauren, trying to take care of myself).  It's been a tough slog getting back into the grind after having the holidays off, particularly making sure I've been getting enough sleep.  Lots of hot tea, wool socks, and blankets and pillows.  Plus some fancy new flannel pajamas.  I know it's cold practically everywhere - everyone take care of yourself and drive safe if you're going to be behind the wheel.

I have a fun (mystery) house guest coming to stay with me this weekend; it's going to be a real riot.  Also Siri and I are in the process of planning a January ski trip.  Not a bad way to kick off The Adventures of 2015.
