It is freakin' cold here. Gah! We've been single digits or below zero for about a week now, with another week of it coming. Luckily, there isn't much snow to deal with on top of it. I did manage to go get my weekly shopping done but didn't bother doing much else once I got back home. Seriously, even in the house it gets cold in between cycles of the furnace running.
I returned the two books Santa had gotten me that I already had, and picked up this as one replacement. The back cover reads, 'The first time my shadow spoke to me, I was a mere infant in the cradle. They say on the night I was born that even the stars fled the sky and the moon hid under a dark cloak. That I was a quiet thing, with a shock of black hair and eyes like glittering onyx. I did not scream like other newborn children. And I did not reach for my mother like instinct should have instructed me. Instead, I held out my tiny arms and smiled at the shadow in the corner of the room. And it smiled back.' Well alrighty then! It's just a middle-grade book but still, I'm looking forward to seeing what this is all about!
I played a lot of Wizard101 yesterday, huddled in my blanket here in my computer chair. My main character hit level 45. I'm almost done with the Mooshu quests. I've decided to focus on fishing first for my extracurricular activity. I still have not bought my house yet, probably because I know I'll get all preoccupied with decorating it and will quit working my character. It's been fun though, just relaxing and losing myself in the game for chunks of time.
How is your year winding down?
