The skies are grey, the temperature has risen above freezing, so the world is drip, drip, dripping. Ginger and I are enjoying our cozy home, it is certainly warm and peaceful in here!
Although out in the world it is oh so dreary, I have had good news. Hydro, and the electrician tell me they should have the electrical service upgrade done before Christmas. I have talked to the company that installed the furnace and they say they can come before Christmas to finish the furnace install once the hydro service is upgraded. I will believe it when I see it, but having said that, I do think this is a go, that it will really happen.
My Mom, my brother-in-law, and my sisters have Covid. So far they are doing well enough, my Mom’s main concern is that she will miss her bridge games for a few weeks. I love my Mom.
I received my usual invitation to a Department alumni lecture. It sounds interesting, but I won’t be attending. Perhaps one of these years a lecture that is so interesting I cannot resist attending will present itself. This has not happened yet.
The filing I’ve been working on is almost under control. Gosh modern life is complicated and full of paperwork, despite the new digital age. This has been a year of much expense and administrative activity; there will be some whopping huge bills to pay in December. But, as Annie says, “tomorrow is only a day away”.
The garden is starting to peep through the snow, and the only fresh produce left to harvest is the kale. The tomatoes are almost all ripe now, as they sit in their boxes in the basement, which means we can use our tomato mill to process them any time. The tomato mill has not yet been used for milling tomatoes, but the meat grinding attachment has been used many times over. Who knew the meat grinder would be such a handy tool.
