"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    The struggle really did anyone in. Do up the presents quickly.
    Sally's mother did Sally over for the play tryouts. The designer made over Sally completely.
    We don't have time to order new parts; we must do with the parts that we have.

    This week work has done me in. I wanted to do my bathroom up alone but I had do it over because I'm inexperienced in the restoration. I didn't spare any money. I could do it with professional as well.
