Another whole day got right by me.
This entry is about tautology and the incredible shrinking world of cabin fever.
I've gone into hibernation now. I no longer crave human contact, my inner, quite realistic, self has given it up as hopeless. After I talk with people on the phone I cry. No reason. I just cry. Cabin fever is sneaky and not to be outwitted by logic in any form.
Other than that all is well. I cook, I clean, I do the email thing, I surf the web and putter around in the same confined space, day after day.
Oh yes, today's very big, edge of your chair, knew you were waiting for it, news; the huge ice awning on the north side of the house fell to the ground this afternoon! I am very pleased, as I can see the sky again on that side of the house.
The project I was working on yesterday distracted me from my own thoughts and feelings. I am revamping one of my web sites. The site has been based on unix forum software and I just have not been happy with its performance. Also, mysql databases aren't exactly simple to use, compared to the plain old text file. And databases get corrupted to boot. So I'm redesigning from the ground up with html and css. It keeps me busy, and when things go right I have a feeling of accomplishment, however tautological that may be.

The storage jar on the right was originally full of relish, or pickles, I can't remember which. It is difficult to find food sold in 6 L jars these days; storage jars are now made out of plastic, not glass.
I've been looking for more of these large glass jars for years now, and haven't found one yet. Well, that is not exactly true, I did find one at a used goods store, but the fellow wanted $5.00 for an old jar with a rusty lid!
The jar on the left, in the picture above, is a 1.5 L wide mouthed mason jar.

"Life is precious to the old person. He is not interested merely in thoughts of yesterday’s good life and tomorrow’s path to the grave. He does not want his later years to be a sentence of solitary confinement in society. Nor does he want them to be a death watch."
