I looked out of the window. The grassy field behind the house next to the three warehouses isn't going to be a grassy field much longer. Construction workers are already using construction equipment to dig a basement in the portion of the grassy field behind my house. Yeah, with snow on the ground and weather in the single digits, it's not really the best weather to build houses. However, somebody is impatient to start building houses upon the grassy field so here comes the Construction Workers. Personally, I feel sorry for the poor Construction Workers who has to work in this type of weather. However, I'm sure the paycheck makes up for the poor weather related working conditions. But hey, even Construction Workers needs to earn a paycheck somehow.

For those who insist that this week is the perfect week to aimlessly roaming outside looking for a religious sign that something special is about to happen clearly hasn't been paying attention to the weather reports. Winter snow is still on the ground with outside temperature either in the single digits or sometimes below zero. This is the type of weather in which staying indoors is much more preferred. It's just like Columbus, Ohio to wait until February---the last month for Winter before actually having Winter snow and Winter-type of outside temperatures. I did shovel the driveway yesterday and it hasn't snowed again. So I'm going to spend today relaxing and surfing the Internet.

Snow is still falling rather lightly today. I will need to shovel the driveway. However, it would be nice to wait until the snow stopped falling before doing so. Otherwise, I'd just be running out and keep doing it every other hour or so. And with the snow falling rather lightly, I won't have to worry about shoveling away the snow in layers. I can just shovel everything with one clean and effortless stroke of the shovel. Normally, this is around the time that snow in Columbus, Ohio would start to melt away and the snow hasn't done that yet. So I guess the snow that has fallen starting yesterday will be here to stay until Springtime. Time for me to get the snow shovel ready.

After spending most of the winter without snow and for most of December without even cold weather, snow finally fell. Yeah, Winter in Columbus, Ohio waited until February (Which is roughly the final month of Winter) before the snow finally fell. The snow fell for most of the day, but still considerably lighter by other cities standards. But still, even a thin layer of snow is a good thing to enjoy. But then again, the snow could always melt away after a brief presence. Yeah, that's always possible. However, there will be snow on the ground for the time being. And it's finally going to start feeling like Winter.

What's your favorite way to wind down at the end of a stressful day (or even just a regular day)? Why is this activity relaxing for you?
It depends on the day as well as dependent on my energy level. Sometimes I would unwind by watching a film on digital video disk. Or I would unwind while reading a book while listening to music on the compact disk player. Or I would unwind after a stressful day with a calm and relaxing nap. I found it always important to live a life that is as free of stress as possible. And if you're in a situation in which stress is unavoidable, always know where to go to relax and unwind when the stressful situation has been completed.

I didn't watch Super Bowl 50. A combination of factors contributing to the decision to skip watching Super Bowl 50 so that I could watch America's Funniest Home Videos and episodes of Shark Tank instead. The halftime show was really the only reason for me to watch Super Bowl 50 anyway and I could watch that on www.youtube.com anytime at my leisure. Most people claim that they watch Super Bowl 50 only for the commercials and the Super Bowl typically has commercials that are exclusive only for the Super Bowl. However, most people are using the restroom or getting a refresh of food and/or drink instead of watching television when the commercials are on. And to judge a television program only on the commercials in between the program and not on the program itself is kind of missing the point. Anyway, I don't watch a lot of football so not watching the last football game of the season isn't that much of a loss for me. Still, I understand why some people would get excited about the last football game of the season. More important, it's just one more step closer towards Summer.

Oh what a challenge it must be to write a novel within a novel. I'm not sure of the mechanics involved. Nor am I sure that such a concept would even be remotely marketable. Well, to be honest, the only way that a novel within a novel would work is if it's about a group of actors putting on a show. But then you would be seeing small portions of this show within a show rather than the entire body of work. So in that case, it would be more of a modified novel within a novel sort of thing. In the end, instead of writing a novel within a novel, it might be a better idea to write two separate novels for the sake of simplicity.

My laptop computer might be having a computer virus so I'm running an anti-computer virus program. And so wit my laptop computer having an anti-computer virus program running on my laptop computer, I'm writing this blog entry on my tablet computer. Ten more days until Valentines Day and eleven days until my birthday. I'll be turning forty-eight years old eleven days from now. I missed out on the chance to be born on Valentines Day by only a few hours. The Super Bowl is getting closer, but I'm not much of a football fan. Though it should be kept in mind that the Super Bowl does have good commercials. However, it's weird to be watching a television show program and only paying attention to the commercials and not the television show program itself.

And so coffee was brewed and enjoyed with my breakfast. I got some coffee left over to enjoy my lunch with as well. Perhaps I'll enjoy dinner with a steaming mug of coffee. The truth to the matter is that coffee goes with any meal of the day. Naturally, there are one and a half spoonful of sugar and occasional cream included. And of course, cappuccino or espresso for those rare occasions. Ah yes coffee, it's the one beverage that I always enjoyed. It's hard to imagine what life would be like without coffee enjoyed the second I wake up in the morning.

It rained last night as I was falling asleep. The rain already stopped falling when I woke up the very next day. Today was calm and peaceful as morning slowly drifts into the afternoon hours. I'll be needing to eat some lunch soon when I finish typing out this Internet blog. I watched television for a bit. I also listened to some music for a bit. There is a jigsaw puzzle begging for my attention. It's still Winter and the weather is still cold, but there is no snow on the ground. I can hear the wind blow against the house as I type this sentence in the computer. It's so calm and relaxing to hear the wind blow in the afternoon.
