Of course, as soon as I blogged about cold weather and ice skating in the Netherlands, it started getting warmer the very next day. It’s mostly stayed above freezing since then, so I think the hopes of many for the 11 Cities Tour have been dashed for the moment. But who knows? Maybe we’ll have another cold streak next month.

This weekend was a rather gray and rainy one—much closer to the typical Dutch winter weather we’ve come to know, yet not quite love. It was a great weekend for staying in and reading books and watching movies though. I flew through New Moon, Stephenie Meyer’s second book in the Twilight series. I enjoyed it, and it was certainly another page-turner, but I didn’t think it was as good as the first book. Jim read Barry Eisler’s The Last Assassin, which he really liked. Apparently, it’s the fifth in a series of action novels. (I haven’t read any of them.) I also watched The Lake House, which is an enjoyable but kind of cheesy Sandra Bullock-Keanu Reeves movie.

I also worked on my other two blogs, Amsterdam in Photos and TechKathy.com, a bit. When I started out blogging in November, I got really excited and had lots of ideas about what I wanted to do. Now that I’m three blogs in, I’m realizing that they’re actually a lot of work, so I think three blogs is it for me. I still have quite a few ideas for new site designs, and I’m toying with the idea of creating my own WordPress design from scratch, but I think that’s a project for later on down the road.
