We had a reprieve from winter today. It's 62º here in west Michigan, though still decidedly dreary. It was great to not have to wear a jacket though and I actually did a little work outside since I've been having problems the past few days with a leak in the flat roof over my breakfast nook. I've had problems with it from time to time and always am able to repair it, but this time it was as if the flood gates had opened. Fortunately, with a 60º day in early January, all the snow was gone and I was able to get up there and do a proper repair. At least I hope so.
And I also took a little walk this afternoon, and broke in the pipe my brother got me for Christmas. Thanks Jim--it's a great smoking pipe.
