Idling....

.... most of the light snow from yesterday had gone by the morning, but a hard frost still coated everything in sight when the Sun came up... and after downing a pot of coffee, the decision was made to head down to Cleveland for lunch.... by 12:30 we were happily seated at a newish Japanese restaurant off Highway 11....

.... we opted for a table & chair arrangement instead of grouping around one of the hibachis.... don't get me wrong, I do LOVE sitting around a hibachi and watching whatever critter I ordered get seared to perfection, but it just wasn't in the cards today.... I couldn't face the idea of getting all warm and toasty beside that giant cooker and then heading outside after the meal into a 19-degree chill factor....

... still, though, it was a passable meal..... and the drive back through the country was beautiful.... once the heater in the car kicked in, the fresh sky and clear day were able to be enjoyed.... one field even harbored a small group of six whitetail deer - no doubt a part of some buck's harem breaking for a mid-afternoon snack while he awaited them back in the brush.....

.... we're back now and the evening is idling down... it is quiet..... bellies are full of teriyaki sauce and fried rice....... and soon the robin's egg blue outside my window will be replaced by darkness and stars.... and it'll be another frosty night.... time keeps ticking...... just as the Bitterman says......

Bullshit So Far

It's currently 5 degrees here. I will soon be going out to pick up pizza... (I don't think it was such a good thing that I found a place that makes pizza I can eat). However, as my heater is cranking away trying to keep my house at a nearly warm 68... I'm already cold - so outside doesn't matter.

Anyhow, for various reasons there is no food here until I shop tomorrow - out into the cold I go - such is life. You can think of me while you sit all toasty and warm in your house. LOL.
