The snow has come and gone, and I have done the driveway with the snow-blower twice. I think we got about six to eight inches in all. Yesterday's snow was, as I predicted, very wet, heavy, and hard to deal with. Today is ten degrees colder, and the snow is easier to handle.

Also got the first batch of Sandtart dough made. Will bake tomorrow.

Mur, I'm sorry, I meant to crit your story today, and didn't get to it. Tomorrow's looking pretty shot, too. Maybe Monday?

安易な == ani na== easy-going
易者 == ekisha == fortuneteller

Originally a pictograph of the rays of the sun reflecting off the skin of the a lizard: this iridescence led to the idea of changeableness. Henshall suggests taking the top part as 'sun' (日), and the bottom part as 'legs', and as a mnemonic: 'Sun bounces easily off lizard's changing legs.'

Hm. Henshall lists this one as being taught in the 5th grade, but the Taka Kanji Database doesn't list it among the Jouyou kanji, but in a separate category of 'other' kanji. Maybe it isn't part of the Jouyou Kanji any more?
