winter house

been getting up well before daylight again

as the dog and i watched a rerun of the recently-defunct Joy Behar Show this morning, i contemplated calculating how long until the time change, spring forward, so's to start a countdown of weeks.

they're having coat sales at places that sell parkas.  it seems excessive to buy a new coat just cuz my pocket's ripped up and my zipper pull's detached.  yet it's really hard to zip up the coat, so sometimes i don't bother, and it's getting cold out there, while the dog crunches excitedly in the white-ish icesnow.  if i keep the coat, i ought have a tailor put a new zipper in.  or can they do just a new zipper pull piece?

such are the questions of our times.
