This morning I am working on another dictated entry. I hope the program I am using will learn my speech patterns as well as I am learning its idiosyncrasies. I’m unaccustomed to speaking so quickly but I will get used to it.
Another sunny day has dawned. When I looked out the window this morning the thermometer read 10°C. The temperature in the house dropped 1°C over the course of the night. We are cozy here, and will be even cozier when we get energy-efficient windows and doors. Those projects are off in the future, as this is not the year that we are spending a lot of money on infrastructure at Mist Cottage.
I’m really enjoying Attila’s present work schedule. Morning is my favourite time of day. Attila and I arise early each morning, and Attila leaves for work early in the morning. My mornings are long and they fly by. I barely have time to notice that Attila is not here, before he is coming in the door with a happy greeting. Of course, I would prefer that Attila were here all the day long, and that is what he would prefer as well. Perhaps a time will come when we are both here at the same time, each and every day.
Most days I manage to work out on my elliptical walking machine. I do like it, as long as I do not overdo it. Although I know that it is recommended that I spend much more time on it than I do, common sense and the limits of pain tell me that what I am doing is perfect for me. The work out usually consists of 20 minutes of walking, while watching a video on either Netflix or YouTube.
Yesterday I purchased another ball of yarn from Walmart, the only retail outlet with quality yarn within easy driving distance. It is another cotton yarn, Bernat Handicrafter, that I will use to make a kitchen towel for Grace the Trailer. I like to have a simple project on the go, that I can take with me to the camp, or on car trip. In reality while at the camp I seldom take up my crochet project, because I am very busy working on projects in the great outdoors.
The weather report says it will be a beautiful weekend. The weather will be nice enough for me to wear the beautiful clothes my Mom sent me.

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
1894 – 1963
Not being able to participate in music, silence has been my refuge.
