Fridaily with doggedness, last bit of our trip, more bitter cold...

Today I have no particular genius to report, just dogged persistence and dutiful work: I AM DONE UPDATING PORTRAITS. Forever and ever and ever, I hope. That was quite the experience, and a huge pile of tedious, brain-melting work. Though it WAS sort of fun see a bunch of portraits I'd totally forgotten about.

Time to get the heavy gears of this project back in motion. There are a bunch of pieces to approve this weekend, and then we'll start celebrating the PA anniversary month in earnest.

(If my own gallery looks gutted, it has been. Some old files need found, some will be updated and improved, and several I just decided had worn out their welcome.)


Guppy and I went into town to go shopping and visit the post office this morning. It is still stupid below zero in town, though a little warmer in the hills where I live. My car thermometer only goes to -22, which is deeply disappointing. Really, Subaru? Really? I mean, c'mon - you START at temperatures colder than that.


And two last photos from our vacation. On our way back home, we paused an overnight in Florida, and scheduling was such that we didn't leave until evening. So I found us a hotel that was right next to a public park where we could go kill a few hours. It was really an enchanting little place - nearly deserted, with a duck pond, and some boardwalk, and informational plaques. It also had this funky frisbee-golf setup, which looked like a lot of fun.


Now, it's back to taxes, which are almost finished! And paying bills. Because this gal knows how to have a GREAT time. I do, at least, get to go out with a friend for dinner and a show tonight! Horrah!
