Firewood Tops The List


Snow squalls are on their way apparently. This morning it is snowing and the wind roars occasionally, which means serious gusts. Driving visibility, the weather network warns, could be nil at times by this afternoon. I will be home by then, I hope. Hopefully Attila will make the short journey home at the end of the day without incident. I rather hope he does, not least because he is the provider of firewood, therefore the provider of heat. Mist and I insist on and appreciate his presence. Of course I have many other reasons for desiring his company, but today firewood tops the list.


As promised, snow squalls have arrived. Attila will be busy most of this evening with snow removal and wood splitting. The road conditions are deplorable, and worsening as the day progresses.

Fish for dinner. Usually Attila does the cooking, but I am the designated fish fryer. We buy frozen fillets, which I thaw, pat dry, dredge in peppered flour and fry in olive oil with chopped garlic. It has become a favorite meal.

I notice WordPress has another software update that I’ll have to manually install on the server. Not today though. I’m kind of tuckered out after a busy start to the week, our trip and then working full time for two days. Guess I’ll just go sit in the easy chair, with my feet up and my Kobo in my hand.

Thanks Sil! Attila’s been home two and half hours and has just come in from clearing the snow from the drive, now the firewood!
Best Wishes, Maggie
