Our 1st-floor heater stopped working last night. Temperature downstairs was down to 61F by this morning. It's back up to 69F now after some occasional running of our gas fireplace, and thinking lots of warm thoughts.

Seven and a half inches of snow so far. Still falling. I’m just assuming right now that the kids will be out of school the entire week.

All caught up on Doctor Who, which took me by surprise because I thought we were further behind.

I so miss the days when Apple products used to "just work".

Old enough to remember when Netflix used to have stuff I wanted to watch.

I have a cup of tea now - that makes it ok I think.

There’s nothing wrong with staying in pajamas all day, right?

Changing things up a bit for today's coffee: Found some kona coffee beans from our trip to Hawaii hiding in the back of the pantry this morning.

Belly is full. Almost time to go fill it some more. Hope all you tooters are having a darn tootin’ good day.

Happy to report I did not keel over and my arm is still attached.

Going to play Ultimate this morning for the first time since I messed up my shoulder a couple months ago. Hoping I can run more than three feet, and that my arm doesn’t fall off.

The days when no one you actually knew in real life had an "online presence".

I think I kinda miss the days when you couldn't just go to Facebook and have the Id of all your relatives and friends barfed onto your screen.

If you're planning on not voting because the current Democrats don't lean far enough to the left, remember: the Overton Window moves in small increments, not all at once. Do you think Republicans over the past few decades sat out because their candidates weren't far enough to the right? And look where they are now.

That was it! On previous loafs I'd just been kneading the dough in the mixing bowl for a couple of minutes. This time, after mixing it well, I pulled it out of the bowl and kneaded it on the counter for a full 10 minutes. Crumb turned out much more open, soft, and spongey.
