Wintry Picture Post
Yesterday, Mark spent 9 hours reconstructing his desk in the office/library/study room of our apartment. I helped, but I also went to karate for 3 hours in the middle, so he did most of the work. This is what it looked like before, and this is what it looked like after. The most impressive bit is what you can't see. Most of those hours of reconstruction were given to Mark meticulously organizing all the cords and wires into little plastic tubes so they no longer become big tangled masses. Here is Mark sitting triumphantly in his new and improved natural habitat. Here's me stealing his chair for a minute.

Part of this new, wonderful set up is the addition of a KVM switch, so Mark can now switch the big monitor between being an auxiliary monitor for his laptop and being the monitor for the actual desktop computer. This is good because 1) it's really neat and a cool new toy for Mark to play with and 2) because it means that properly downloading all the digital pictures taken with his camera and getting them ready to post is much easier. Thus, I now have a ton of pictures I can post. Looky!

We have a Christmas tree.

We also have a garland with purple lights on top of our china cabinet of books.

For a few weeks now, it's been cold enough for the pond to really freeze.

And then, it snowed on top of it! Yay, snow!

A big fat birdie came and sat in the snow on the balcony for a long time.

Here's a better look at the birdie. I love being on vacation.

Hope you're having a good winter vacation and holiday season, too!
