Home sweet home. I’ve three days crossed off my calendar for this week, three more to go, then another week of crossing off the days and April will be here! I have no work in April, good, bad, good, bad… you get the picture.
It was chilly out there today, and beautiful. Attila, who works out of doors, said the breeze was brisk. It looked beautiful though, sunny with playful breeze; that is what I saw from the comfort of a heated building with large windows.
I was going to drive south the take the car in for servicing; tried Monday, freezing rain; tried Tuesday, ended up working for the afternoon to cover for an emergency there; tried today but reports from drivers were that the road conditions to the south were poor; will have to try tomorrow. If I can’t get to the dealership we can’t travel to our little house in the city. I have my fingers crossed.
The interior temperature in our house is beginning to drop as the temperature outdoors falls. Our supply of wood is shrinking fast, Attila has to work very hard to find enough wood for two firings a day. Still, he is managing. Actually, I can hear the chain saw buzzing out there, so I suppose we are at the point where he is taking down the small dead trees closer to the house and preparing the wood for tonight’s firing.
Luna sent pictures of Imp’s first haircut, soooo cute! Elf had his hair cut as well, not the first time for Elf, and not a good experience as far as he is concerned. Imp loved getting her hair cut, Elf looks definitively unimpressed by the procedure.
Here is a little bit of fun. Note that these fashion models look healthy, no pathological dieting going on here.
