Turning Cold

...and snowing.

Husband promised he'd get the plastic on the coldframe, so I could plant greens. Unfortunately, the snow beat him to it. Maybe today, if the sun is shining.

This newfound chilliness is perfect for snuggling on the couch and watching movies. We just saw Heat with Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and a whole BOATLOAD of some of Hollywood's best character actors (bloody, but extremely good). Also: Traitor with Don Cheadle. (Amazing, and some off-the-wall twists. I couldn't stop thinking about it, even the next day.)

Whew. Country Living hasn't gotten the axe -- it was Country Home magazine. I still miss Cottage Living the most, though. See the New York Post's report on it:

And Brin at Messy Thrilling Life has an immensely thoughtful post on praying...then listening to what God says. (And how He chooses to say it.) There have been times that I've been begging God for an answer -- when He was telling me all along, but I was choosing to ignore Him. Read Brin's experience here:

And in case you're wondering what made the difference in the doctored-up potato salad, it was fresh lemon juice, honey mustard...and a sprinkle of soul food seasoning. (See my last post if this seems totally out of nowhere.)

Back to work. Hope you have a wonderful -- and restful -- weekend.
