Happy 2008, all, whether I've said it to you already or not.

Such a doin'-stuff day today. Shovelled. Baked. Cleaned. Made a semi-improvisational knock-off hoppin' john. Took a coupla small ventures into the snowy world. Spent by far most of the day on my feet. By all rights, this sweet mamma right here? She oughta sleep well to-nite.
