Good Morning! The weather outside my window here in Central PA is nice, almost reaching the balmy stage. That will happen later this afternoon when the temps reach their high in the mid 50s (F). The same forecast is in store for tomorrow. This winter has been moderate. I've no problem with that. We've also been rainier than usual, with more on the way.
I'm going to try and burn tons of calories today since I ate so many yesterday. My caloric intake always goes through the roof when I go out for breakfast. We ate at Denny's. Even the water has calories at Denny's. Starting off the day with a 1200 calorie omelet always triggers the carb monster I usually manage to control. The only good thing about the carb monster is that when he is finally back under control, my refrigerator and cupboards are clear of high calorie carbs.
They drywaller packed up his gear and left yesterday morning, so I'm fairly certain most of the heavy construction is finished in the house next door. Well, except for the bathrooms. I suspect that's going to be noisy. And, of course, they're going to have to put new siding on the outside. They haven't done anything with the roofs, either. It is all rather interesting.
I made a little video yesterday about the character creation in The Body Under Ice. It's now posted on my Instagram account, as well as my YouTube channel.
The State of the Union was last night. As usual, I didn't watch. While on certain occasions I will watch speeches, mostly I don't. The State of the Union is one I rarely watch. Notice, I'm writing out the name, State of the Union rather than using the acronym. I've never been one of those people whose secret desire is to be trendy.
State of the Union speeches have two purposes, to show how well the president has done, and to allow him to present his plans, a menu of high caloric dishes, if you will, for the next year or so. With the miniscule Republican majority in the House, very little will get accomplished, especially when you realize so many of them are complete brainless. How brainless? Well, they only get exercise when their pet balloons decide to take them for a walk.
Sarah Sanders (Huckabee) gave the Republican rebuttal. I'm certain there are MAGA voters who cheered at the sight of a fat, white woman wearing white, no doubt an attempt to imply she's pure of heart, telling America that with Executive orders she banished CRT and racism from schools. Honestly, when I saw her picture I thought a Chinese weather balloon was floating over Arkansas.
