We are into our fourth day of the arctic cold front. Still well below zero at night and into the single digits (if it gets that warm) during the day. But, the sun has been shining, which helps make up for the cold. At least the cars start. It is supposed to be nicer toward the end of next week, and then we get a real January thaw the following week. March is only six weeks away. Spring IS on the way. In the meantime, we are mourning the Vikings loss, but it would have been embarrasing to have them move any further in the playoffs. Good grief, this has been an embarrassing year. We can only hope next season is better. DH and I may head for Hinkley on Thursday (if the weather is good) for a little fun at the casino. There were $10 coupons in our Sunday newspaper. With the coupon from my mother, that's $20 for a some fun. Maybe we'll get lucky. DH and I went to see Mama Mia! on stage downtown Minneapolis last week. I was delightful. A real happy evening. If you get a chance to see it, please do. You will leave smiling. I hope everyone is having a good week. The iV board is really quiet right now, too. Must be the time of the year. Hugs to all, Lauri
