First, we need some rain, and then the California poppies will bloom in my yard.
I've been busy with this and that, nothing to write home about. Went to a movie, a holiday party, shopping, a dinner or two with friends and a lecture, a symphony, did some bookkeeping, some cleaning and cooking, lots of old image processing and not enough riding.
I'm grumpy. I'm always grumpy this time of year. I don't have any travel plans and I know they're going to repaint inside my cottage in January and that means I have to do a lot of rearranging, and deep cleaning and purging (a good thing) of years and years worth of crap. Seems like I'm always trying to get rid of things and somehow I still have too much.
