Thursday January 7, 2010

Arghhh...I am having trouble with the comment moderation on this blog. 2 comments that I wanted to publish have disappeared, one from Tabitha and one from Cabo. The last time I got some weird error message...either way, they are both gone ...Pfffftttt!


I am very tired, mostly from not enough sleep last night. I didn't do much today, read, went out and checked on my chickens. Went down to the end of the driveway and got the mail. That was enough to wear me out. Did a little computing, a little reading and fielded several phonew calls. My phone signal was iffy today too, and several times got voice mail alerts when my phone never rang.

The cold is still with us, and the weather alerts are for the actual cold itself, telling us that in winds like these, you can get frostbite in less than 20 minutes. The chickens are hanging in there, of course we have a heat lamp in there on a thrmostat and a heated water bowl as well.It is snowing again, and has snowed off and on all day.


I am reading the last quarter of the book The Lacuna. It's quite good, and the main character is now living in Asheville, North Carolina...near where I lived the last 10 years before moving back here. The descriptive passgaes of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the town of Asheville itself (Tunnel Road, Pack Square) are making me homesick for the place. Just the names of the French Broad River, the Swannanoa River, etc evoke great memories...


I have been especially blessed to have lived in some really beautiful places in my lifetime....


I'm off to bed. Blessings and sweet dreams to all...



Namaste.

Stay warm. I can't think of any better place than inside with a good book in that kind of weather.

You are in the mid west and so are we. Very cold the past few days and windy. The wind has stopped for now so we are going out to shovel some snow so the mail person can get to the mailbox and keep the snow down enough so we can get out of the garage and down the driveway if we want to go anywhere. I will check out the info on the book you are reading. I am always looking for more books.

That is the most peaceful, beautiful picture of the snow. Probably more wonderful to look at than to walk through.

I love the Blue Ridge mountains.

Warm good-night to you.
