No snow! The snow shovel sits in lonely reverie in the garden shed. Soon enough the snow will arrive and require endless hours of hard work clearing paths and decks. Attila feels blessed. I could not resist posting this quote. I am so tired of the political posturing and shenanigans of the men at work that it is hard to believe the Christmas spirit still exists. I need to remember that the universe will deal with these clowns, I don’t have to. Quote Nothing is more conducive to peace of mind than not having any opinions at all. Georg Christoph Lichtenberg 1742 – 1799

Tonight I mixed up a new batch, using a new recipe. I have my fingers crossed. I am prepared to continue with this project until we get it right. Right for us at least. I find it more and more difficult to connect with myself as I spend more time at my place of employment. I cannot afford to feel much there. I have to be endlessly pleasant, to customers, to the other employees, to my boss. The boss is similar to an oversized infant with verbal skills. He is not an evil man. He is not a particularly mean man. He is not a nice man. There is nothing about him that I find admirable. There isn’t anything about him I find acceptable, if truth be told.
