Well, the snowstorm was a bust. It went offshore and we just got a dusting. I'm not heartbroken. I woke up to blazing blue skies with wispy white clouds (after I removed my sleeping masks).
A rather strange sight is greeting me in the mirror. Tufts of hair stick out on my temples on each side. It is becoming more apparent as it grows longer; currently there is a lot of hair about 1 1/2 inches long. I hope it is something that is really only noticeable to me, but I am smoothing it down rather more often that I used to. I am going to try to stay strong and stop coloring my hair. I think I can really do it this time. From the growth that I have now, it appears to be completely gray with a few silver strands.
Mark's posts are co-sleeping have me appreciating my cats more and more. They are really perfect sleeping partners. They don't disturb me at all but they are very comforting. I can put my hand out anytime and find warm fur that starts purring. You can't put that in a box and sell it.
