Well, it’s January, that time of the year when Seattleites are buried under a never-ending grey blanket of clouds, walking streets that are perpetually wet. However, it hasn’t been quite that bad this year, weather-wise. Sure, there have been days like that, but we’ve also had some crystal clear days, and today it was sunny and over 60 degrees! That’s closer to the average temperature for April! Normally at this time, I start itching to escape the state to somewhere warm, but that feeling hasn’t been too strong (yet). That said, I do feel a bit like I’m in hibernation mode, preferring to do things that are low-key and casual, rather than going dancing, to shows, skiing, etc. Often I don’t even want to have conversations, though. I simply don’t have a lot of energy or patience these days, which has a lot to do with the fact that I’ve been working more than normal. So, I’ve been reading a lot. A LOT. So much that I’ve finished six books in 23 days!
I have managed to have some fun times with people this month, though, including being at the Seahawks’ incredible come-from-behind victory against the Packers to advance to the Super Bowl! And, with any luck, ticket prices to the big game will start going down soon, and I’ll be there for that game, too!
