Fragment Friday - Odds and Ends Edition

It's winter and dreary out. Have a flower.

1.  Gyroscope Review is still taking submissions for the Spring 2015 issue although slots are starting to fill up. Submit through Submittable, it's easy on everybody. Hoping to see your work in the slush pile. 

2. Nice to have had the sun all week although I feel for the people back east who got dumped on by snow. Been there, shoveled that. How's the weather in your part of the world?

3. Finally put a new CD in the car player for my morning and evening commutes. Funny how the unknown music makes the drive go quicker. Note to self: when you can anticipate the guitar chords to the next song, time to change albums. What I'm listening to - Linkin Park's The Hunting Party

4.  Who's going to win the Super Bowl? I don't have a dog in this fight, so... New England? I don't have particular feelings for either team, so the least objectionable gets my vote. Not exactly scientific, I know....

5.  I can tell when I'm gearing up to do artwork, I start acquiring new sketchbooks and paints. Same with writing - new poetry and how to books, same with knitting and weaving - new yarn although I've got enough stockpiled to last through the zombie apocalypse. What do you stockpile in anticipation?

The flower looks lovely - what is it? Is it really in bloom now, in mid-winter, or is it a photo from warmer seasons to cheer yourself up?

I'm not sure what it is, I took it at my sister-in-law's place back in September. Just thought dreary January needed flowers!

Not enough snow here. Well, there's some in the mountains now but not where I live, and one can't drive into the mountains because there are idiots with summer tires around and block the roads.

We're having an odd warm spell here. Snow all melted away. I'm sure that will all change soon.

Not much snow in Oregon, but we found some in Montana. Been enjoying the white stuff immensely. I guess it holds its charm when you're only in it for a couple of weeks. ;)

Yes, six months of snow would drive people to drink. :)
