Shower chair

 Six years ago, after the accident, I wrote about the luxury of a shower. This week Betsy climbed up to the attic to retrieve the shower chair to give away. I was very pleased when the insurance company agreed to purchase that chair, and I was also very pleased to watch it leave the house, knowing that no one in my family needed it any more.

After the storm

 We had a proper storm yesterday, complete with the university closing for the day.

(I thought my nephew would like to watch my driveway getting cleaned)

Hard water

I don't really think about the water softener until it breaks.

Sick day

 One of the things I like about my new position is that I have sick days. I took my first sick day yesterday and I was glad that I could lie on the couch without having to arrange a sub and send lesson plans and wonder if I really should have just dragged myself to class.

There was about a forty degree difference between the temperature on my Thursday morning drive and my Friday morning drive.

Apparently it can snow in Michigan after all.

 We've gotten precipitation this winter, but not much has been in the form of snow.

My office doesn't have a window, but my boss graciously shares hers with me. We were writing an annual report yesterday when we took a moment to watch big, wet flakes of snow floating from the sky.

It's no surprise--I really like my new smart phone.

Christmas trim

Logan never liked the fabric-covered-cardboard trim that I tacked around the front door. So, for Christmas he gave me some boards, which he installed and I promptly painted.
