I woke up to another oppressively gray day today feeling defiant. This morning, unlike other less exciting mornings, would involve the ceremonial first wear of new mittens (convertible ones so I can take photos out in the cold!!) AND a delicious Giant Pancake from the Grove Cafe. Here I have to take a second to plug for the Grove, as they were so kind as to let me model-ize my food this morning. Seriously. Go there. (124 Main Street Ames, Iowa 50010.) It is mind-numbingly satisfying.
Anyway. My mittens were snuggling up so cutely to my pancake, I really had to take a picture of them together. Sadly, their relationship was short lived. Sadly, that is, for them. My stomach is not so sad.
