sleeping beauty may have taken nyquil

Having gotten her drugs yesterday morning, Leah didn't have any trouble sleeping last night. She was in bed at 7:00 and asleep by quarter past; and then she didn't get up until after 8:00 in the morning. She did show some signs of alertness over those hours, but I don't believe that her response of 'buh, buh, muh' when I asked her if the puppy was taking up too much room on the bed indicates a high level of congnative functioning. And you know what the first thing she did after she woke up was? Take a nap!

I'm sick too (and a little note: the last thing you want to do when you have a deadly sore throat is lead a kids choir) but given Leah's all-encompassing cold, I am forced to assume the caregiver role. Oh, how we long for the warm days of summer!

Speaking of which, it snowed yesterday, which was a bit of a shocker. Is it allowed to snow after we've had days of eating breakfast outside, lounging in the hammock and even going to the beach? Apparently it is, and all day long too. It's pretty much all melted by now, though. I worried for my newly-planted trees, but a respected gardening authority informs me that snow is considered 'poor-man's fertilizer', and as a poor man myself I am happy to hear that.

On an unrelated note, it occurred to me that in creating this new blog machine the one thing which I overlooked was any sort of RSS feed; and perhaps certain members of our audience were wont to take advantage of that particular technological offering. So I looked at the feed from the old blog and made my attempt at one for this new, with, I believe, some sucess. But I don't know anything about the RSS really, so if you manage to read this and are having trouble with the syndication and whatnot, let me know and I'll fix it some more. And if you can tell me how to fix it some more, so much the better!
