Winter has set in over here. This week has been especially cold. My weather widget says it's only one degree outside now, and tonight the low will be -7. Chilly!

On Sunday, we had lunch at Capital City Grill and then went to the Louisiana State Museum in downtown. There are two permanent exhibits in the museum. Downstairs covers Louisiana's history, and upstairs has displays relating to culture (food, festivals, football/tailgating etc). We spent most of our time downstairs, looking at the displays on the Mississippi and the Louisiana purchase. We ended up rushing through quite a bit downstairs, and everything upstairs (we thought we'd be booted out at closing time), so we are hoping to go back for a better look.

That's about it for this week, just staying in to keep warm (and drinking lots of tea). I'm off now, to start some pea and ham soup for dinner.
