The fact that it was sunny out most of the weekend did nothing to change the face that it was in the 20s. Not cool. Yes, I complain about the weather a lot. This is because, lately, most of my self-created activities and projects have to take place in outdoor areas. My bad. I'll have to take up scrimshaw next winter. One of my favorite songs is "Tales of Brave Ulysses" by Cream. The first and incredibly apt lyric is "You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever."

It's Monday, all you fabulous inhabitants of so-called "Planet Earth." Excited about the prospects of the new week? This will probably help give you a good perspective.
