It's Monday! I've got it! I've got it!

On Saturday morning it was -33. NOT windchill. The boys and I did not walk. In fact, Ryker didn't believe me when I said it was too cold even though he didn't step outside the back because of the cold. The front is different, everyone knows that. I said, ok let's go down the driveway and back. He kept lifting his paws like they were hurt and then finally sat down on the driveway. I said, we can't stay here, we have to go back to the house. Oy.

Since it warmed up to +2, I did go to the forum put on by Danielle Egnew. It was a talk on love and consciousness. And at the end we're always allowed one person question which is very cool. I found out about another of my guides who I always knew was there -- ever since high school, I've felt him.

We watched Suicide Squad that evening. It wasn't on the level of Marvel movies, but it was better than we had been told.

Cowboys won last night. Woot! Watched the mid-season finale of NCIS Los Angeles, the Christmas episode. Nice.

Nothing on TV for me tonight. I'll watch Street Outlaws tonight with Steve.

I'm in a reading funk for some reason. So maybe I'll stick with kinda reading a comfort read but it's a different version of it. Starting DARCY'S STORY by Janet Aylmer.

When Elizabeth Bennet first met Mr. Darcy, she found him proud, distant, and rude—despite the other ladies' admiration of his estate in Derbyshire and ten thousand pounds a year. But what was Mr. Darcy thinking? Mr. Darcy has always remained an intriguing enigma—his thoughts, feelings, and motivations hidden behind a cold, impenetrable exterior . . . until now. With the utmost respect for Austen's original masterwork, author Janet Aylmer loving retells Pride and Prejudice from a bold new perspective: seeing events as they transpire through the eyes of Darcy himself. One of world's great love stories takes on breathtaking new life, and one of fiction's greatest romantic heroes becomes even more sympathetic, compelling, attractive, and accessible, all through the imagination and artistry of a truly gifted storyteller.
Published 2006, it has 288 pages. It is enjoyable because the author is using the same language as the original which is part of the charm.

Today's high was 33 and tomorrow a little warmer. Don't really like it because the roads will be melty/slushy and then ice up overnight and be not fun driving. Bah.

Have a great day!

Much love,
