So, this place is still being refrigerated once the sun goes down. Rain is expected Wednesday, and with precipitation's arrival the nighttime temperature will rise once again. So far, we're not on the track for snowstorms this year. It's just as well, as I don't feel like shoveling. That recent period of mild weather caused many of the plants to develop buds early, though, and I'm hoping that another such period doesn't send them into premature blooming. The icy nights between storms would slaughter anything that dared grow this early, leaving us with a dull spring.
A young cricket has taken up residence in the bathroom, but I haven't heard it chirp yet. I hope it remains in that room. The cat almost never goes into the bathroom, and even then never climbs onto the counter where the cricket is. If the insect decided to explore another part of the house, though, it would be apt to become a protein supplement to kitty's diet. The cricket is probably wise not to chirp and attract feline attention.
I still haven't found the maps I've been looking for. A more thorough cleaning of the room is in order.
Also, I need to get some more wintry user icons.
