so that was my day. it was cold and wet outside, no point in leaving the house to enjoy such lousy weather. after a shower with my hair still damp i did briefly venture into the backyard, the only time today when i left the house. wet weather makes for dramatic photos, but the backyard lacked dramatic subjects. next month, the poppies and the delphiniums will come out, they make for some nice photos. i think the roses come out next month as well.
after dinner, i spent some quality time with my checkbook and a stack of unpaid bills. if nothing else, at least i got that out of the way, the only constructive thing i managed to do today. debating whether or not i should shave off my beard, i ended up shaving off parts of it tonight (not brave enough to ditch the whole thing), with a raincheck to take care of the rest some other opportune time.
