and back again. We
have been on an overnight trip, to visit friends. What
We burned a fire yesterday at noon to keep the house warm while we were away for the night. We arrived back tonight just after 6:00 P.M. and the temperature had dropped to 14 C. Not bad really.
Mist's take on our absence and the dropping temperature was decidedly negative. She was very, very glad to see me come in the door, greeting me with very loud meows and winding herself around my legs. I know old girl, terrifying when you can't light the fire yourself, and your here alone, and your not sure we will come back. I know.
Mist spent about an hour cuddled on my lap while Attila built and lit a fire. It was only when the fire began to throw an intense heat that Mist finally jumped to the floor and curled up in front of the fireplace. Happy at last, Mist now feels the world is revolving as it should.
While we were away it must have snowed. And then it must have rained. The plough had gone by and left a deep mound of slushy snow across the end of the driveway. We could not get the car in. We grabbed some of our luggage and trudged up the driveway. After depositing his luggage in the house, Attila returned to the road with his shovel, and within 20 minutes he had the car safely parked in the drive
We should have the heat in the house back up to a comfortable level by tomorrow night. In the meantime I will be wearing heavy socks and thick sweaters.
