In all senses of the word. I switched on the television to see how the American election was doing - but switched it off again. At the moment it is all too depressing.
Then looking out of the window, we have had four inches of wet snow overnight and it is snowing still. I hardly expect there will be an exercise class this afternoon as our tutor comes from about twelve miles away - all uphill - and the roads are very slippery according to the farmer, who has been into town for the papers (which were absolutely on time, so they can't be bad everywhere).
The wood burner is lit, I have unearthed a heavy, long cardigan, and if the class is cancelled I shall spend the afternoon sewing together my crochet squares to form a blanket for the new baby's buggy (when it comes in three weeks time) and doing the Times crossword.
I shall try not to think of the election results, about which I can do absolutely nothing anyway.
