I've not fallen off the face of the earth, I simply couldn't get into my blog to write anything.
Now that i'm finally able to get back in, i'm inundated with work things and have little time to write.
I've also a mountain of blog reading to catch up on.
Short version chez moi has been two big snowstorms in November, one at the beginning of the month, which knocked out the electrics and Interwebz for up to a week (although my electricity was restored after two days), and one at the end, in time for Thanksgiving. We went snowshoeing the day after and had fun. Also a reminder of how out of shape we were.
And here we are on the first day of the last month of the year. The wreath is up on the front door, we're down to the last five inches/ ~12.5 cm of snow, and the sun is shining!
