We had today off in exchange for working Thanksgiving. I took advantage of the free time to get an eye exam and order new glasses, which look about the same as the old glasses. They were having a 60 percent off sale, so I also ordered a pair of single-vision sunglasses with a gradient rose tint in them. (Protip: If you’re basically blind without your glasses, make sure your sunglasses are light enough to wear indoors juuuuuust in case something happens to your daily drivers. I’m partial to rose, as it tends to be the least annoying in low light, but any gradient will work, as the bottom third of the lens will be practically clear.)
We didn’t accomplish much else today. It was cold and gray and nasty outside, so I spent most of the afternoon taking a nap. I’m still tired. Short days and cold weather wear me down.
Ah, well. Spring training starts in two and a half months. Phillies and Rockies haven’t announced their reporting dates yet, but I’m sure they will in the not-too-distant future.
Also worth noting: Kate Pierson has a new album coming out Feb. 17. January is really going to have to put in some effort to justify its existence this year.
Oh, P.S.: Sarah over at New England Permaculture Homestead posted a Q&A featuring yours truly today as part of a series she’s doing on people who are trying to reduce their environmental impact. Go take a look. (Bonus: She included a photo of me at age 5 with a birdhouse Daddy designed and let me help put together.)
