5:15 p.m.  Still 55°F out here in the garage.  Note the location.  Should mention that I was down in the OC this week and in so cal…it's already spring.  'Course…it's never really not spring there…except when it's summer.  Drove by our house…heart pangs…when I saw the bouganvilla and the agave along the path at Saddleback…I've got to say my heart broke just a little.  Here in Rocklin, it's not dead, just not bird of paradise and pink pearl bouganvilla.

Tonight?  Leek and potatoe soup with a great focacia style cheesy bread.  Fitting for a still winter day in Rocklin.
