-2°C (28.4°F) Today was a day of communication for me… writing letters and e-mail, so much that I feel written out. I didn’t even get outside, but I still feel good.

It generally feels more like winter. The grass is looking a little less green, a little more brown, as if the cold is finally seeping into the ground. We had another light dusting of snow today, a little moister than yesterday so it looked almost like frost. And then, as usual, the sun came out just in time to shine directly into my eyes through the window – a hint of warmth if I kept my eyes closed, but I couldn’t get much work done that way, now could I?
