We’re already into February and the winter doldrums have NOT set in. I usually get kinda droopy in around this time; but not this year. It’s a combination of things. The weather hasn’t been as miserable as in years past. The “temporary” dog has been much better behaved recently. And I’ve we’ve done a few minor upgrades inside the house. So, the winter hasn’t dragged on like it usually does. But, we still won’t mind a mid-winter vacation to someplace in the Southern hemisphere.
