This is how a spend a lot of the time between holidays

Maybe it is the solstice, maybe it is some sort of muscle memory in my brain from when we all were hunter gatherers, but this time of year always inspires me to ponder what the next steps will be on everything I am doing.  As you can see, I have company while I do this.  What you can't see are the two on the floor who are hoping that despite what it appears, there are food crumbs about to land near them...

Out there somewhere is a bridge

and right here is a small pile of snow..... SNOW people, there was supposed to be maybe rain, MAYBE rain, and maybe not even that.  I swear that to be a weatherperson in NYC all you have to do is pretend and wave your arms in front of a blue screen.  THIS IS SNOW!

with two dogs, this is a major event, and since it is the first of the season I really don't know which shoes/boots are the least slippery in snow and still have not figured out how to get two sets of 4 each of those little booties things that keep their feet out of the salt.  I want you to think how I am going to get 8 of these on paws, as well as shoes on me and a coat and a scarf and mitts and keys etc etc etc when Tinta is just barely making it out the door without peeing in the hall.

I am especially fond of this particular listing on Amazon because it says the original price for these suckers is $1700!
