Feeling Sorry for Myself

So here I sit in Switzerland. If I just look outside, there's more than a meter of fresh snow on the ground, plus dustings of light powder the past two days. The sun is out, there's not a cloud in the sky, the temps are just below freezing, and the slopes are brilliant. So why am I blogging? Well, that cold, the one I avoided all winter long, has come to haunt my Easter holiday.

I had high hopes for this week - skiing with the kids, one at a time, to really have a chance to focus on each of them. And then there was the work I might accomplish - I was prepared to take over a whole new corner of the web market this (holiday) week. But I'm afraid these things will have to take a back seat to Vitamin C and paracetamol. So I have my computer, my box of tissues, my hot herbal tea, my glass of water - and I'm taking a chance to update my blog with some pictures and new entries.

Funny thing about blogs... When I started writing a bit more this week, I thought of more and more to write. Now my head is full - not just of coldy gunkiness but - of ideas for more entries.

What else have I discovered? That you can print out a blog, professionally (at Blurb). Now why on Earth would anyone want to print out a blog, some of you may certainly wonder. Doesn't it defeat the purpose? Well, I'm not doing this for you, but for me and my memories. The thought that it might sit in a bound volume, with beautiful glossy picutres, that you could flip through at will (without clicking) fills me with joy. Sort of an addition to my scrapbooking (that I haven't had time to update lately) and the photo albums I do on Shutterfly.
