Despite temps warming up later under sunny skies I had one of those days where I simply could not get myself into gear. I had things to do outside but I just didn't feel like doing any of them. Oh, I did get myself a backyard campfire going late this morning thinking maybe it would help warm up the cold air. Our overnight temps are predicted to drop to 42F tonight so it looks like yet another cold morning start for us guys.

My wife asked if she could have a little peace and quiet while she cooked dinner. So I took the battery out of the smoke detector.
