Well, it took me until after 10pm last night but they are done and outa here!
It is amazing how trying it is to run errands when it is this windy and cold. I'm not done yet either. In a few minutes, I'm off to visit a friend of mine at the Zen Center, then eat supper there and do some chantin' with the Buddhists. Literally the only thing that is getting me out of the house again is the fact that my friend's apartment has something wrong with the heating system and is, consequently, always stuck at around 85 degrees. It may be a drag getting there but once I do, I'll be warm, warm, warm!! I can't wait! I feel like such a reptile this time of year. All I want is some sunshine and warm rock.
Stay warm all and I hope all your trash barrels don't end up in the neighbors yard (or the street!). I think mine are getting ready to make a break.
