The boys are celebrating; it's Wind-chill Day! No School. Video Games Galore. They are shouting and killing each other over and over. I'm not sure I approve of the violence, but now they are in there singing. I made them milkshakes. Chocolate. They nuked themselves some taquitoes. It's party time. I'm trying to work on my novel. The noise is horrendous, but at least they sound happy. Outside, the sun is shining--brightly--but it is COLD! I guess winter has finally actually arrived--and with a vengeance!
I'm also still working on my delayed IMBOLC* taking down of the greens between chapters--hope I finish today. I am ready for the turn into sun!
*"the official last day of the Christmas season and also the last date for taking down the Christmas greens. Leaving them up after Candlemas (or Imbolc) is bad luck." I may be in for some bad luck then, because I'm not quite done yet. And this is the 5th!
