It can only go up, right?

This morning.

It's a brilliant blue sky, the kind of clarity you wish would happen in the summer. Lose the haze of city life and just be this clear, please?

With clear comes cold. There's no cloud cover to keep in the heat and all this snow just reflects heat back. There's a draft in the house, very small, but there nonetheless. I guess I can't keep all the winter chill out.

And today was milk delivery day. You still can't get to the front steps. Over the warmer weekend predicted, I'll deal with that. So, I moved the milk box off the front steps and next to the mailbox. I needed, in addition to the milk and water I always get, salted butter. Oberweis is having a sale on ice cream quarts, buy 3 get 1 free. There are some days where ice cream is the only thing that matters. Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Peanut Butter. It was so hard to choose.

I brought in the ice cream and water. I thought I had blown my hair dry but not completely. The walk around the house netted frozen hair. Back out with lunch and I started up the car and then went to get the butter and the milk. The milk had frozen in the glass jar and broken. It's been a couple years since I had this happen. The butter is fine. I just rinsed it off and stuck it in the freeze, but I'll have to go get milk. I am completely out. And, wouldn't you know, the things I want to eat require milk. So, I will make a quick trip to the grocery after work and get milk...

chocolate sauce, bananas, maraschino cherries, walnuts. Yup. I'm thinking it's a sundae night. What's more appropriate on a frigid winter evening than an ice cream sundae?

Beverage:  Edinburgh's Finest tea
