But the guts are doing much better, thank you, and we actually got some snow this afternoon, so I'm a tidge more chipper than I've been. My new cell phone is on its way--- since the old one disapparated two weeks ago and, providentially, I was due for an upgrade. Those of you who haven't heard from me in a fortnight can rest assured that I'll be programming in your personal ringtones by Tuesday evening.
The kiddos and I are dreaming of the garden we're going to create this spring. Milwaukee has finally passed its chicken law---city residents are able to have up to 4 chooks---and Akiva is bursting with mini-coop plans and breed options. The girls are eying seed catalogs and debating the virtues of raspberries over blueberries, and I'm trying to fathom our 95% concrete back yard growing anything. Lots of raised beds, I suppose. Yup, feels like January.
