Since the last few updates have been very philosophical, I'll make this one direct. I've been sick all week. Wasn't much fun but I'm starting to feel better. Taught my first private lesson friday. I like them. They're fun, relaxed and they pay well and immediately.
It's warming up a little here. Temps are now in the upper 30s and the snow and ice are beginning to melt, finally. It might even hit the 40s soon (which will feel like a heatwave at this point). To celebrate here are some pictures of my neighborhood, pre-winter.
