The house is once again cozy and warm.  The weather outside has warmed considerably and the thermal mass in the house is warming as well.

We signed up for a free month of Netflix, and I’ve been hard at work making the most of the service while we have it.  I’ve been checking out programs that must run on channels we never get on television, like Drop Dead Diva and Huff.  There are a lot of older excellent movies we have not seen yet, out here in the bush.  We watched “A Beautiful Mind”, about the life of John Forbes Nash, Jr., a Nobel Laureate in Economics. Funny thing though, Mr. Nash doesn’t look a bit like Russell Crowe, who gave an entirely sympathetic performance as the troubled economist.

The Kobo continues to delight me.  However, they have not addressed the issue that a book I purchased from them is not available for download onto the Kobo, as it should be.  I’ll have to send them yet another email about this.  How long should this take!  They’ve got my money, I’ve got no book!

Tomorrow I am back at work, thank goodness. I become extremely inactive when confined to the house for long periods of time. My work is physically challenging. I’ll be tired tomorrow night and then I should acclimatize to the increased activity levels.

Today has been quiet, filled with pleasant conversation and very enjoyable.
