The weather has taken a turn for the chill. The cold rolls off of the apartment's large windows. It's no longer easy to leave all the doors open, to let the sunshine glow in the rooms. The sun, however bright in the blue sky, doesn't warm as much as it did, and the curtains are better insulators. I have been congratulating myself on my cunning in putting my desk chair right next to a radiator. I shouldn't have the excuse for not working of cold, stiff fingers this winter.
I am looking forward to this week: meetings with friends, a new email account (which won't replace anything old, don't worry!), booking tickets for future travel, finishing off an overdue project, and starting on urgently loooming projects which will temporarily have the excitement of novelty attached to them. There is chocolate and warmth and a finished wardrobe and a lovely new icon in my life. That'll do.
