Well, Monday finally made it here. Whew! That was a close one. lol
It's been absolutely gorgeous today, 46 degrees and mostly sunny. The doglets cooperated with mama today by playing outside almost all day so I could get all the vacuuming done. Yippee ! No more tumbleweeds of dog hair floating around. lol (for now)
Happy Birthday, Dr King. Martin Luther King Jr. — ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’ One of my favorite quotes. Something I must believe as well if I am to survive this crazy world.
I spent some time outside today, (okay--it was out burning trash and tending chickens, but it was still outside!!) It felt good in the middle of winter to be able to feel the heat of the sun on me. I swept down the front porch too, just stalling so I wouldn't have to go in yet. lol Plus, of course, if I don't, I might as well not bother vacuuming, because all the leaves and dirt come right through the front door. The furnace guy was here right off the bat, first thing and got my furnace put together and running like a top. Thank goodness. It wasn't the guy that came Friday, but his brother, who is every bit as nice and competent as Todd. He cleaned things up and asked for my broom. I told him I would gladly sweep it up, as I have to vacuum today anyhow. He asked about my writing...last time they were here I was working on NaNoWriMo and he was seriously impressed. Said he didn't know anyone who was a writer before. lol I was surprised he even remembered that. lol
So the house is all comfy warm and the day was warm and tonight is supposed to plunge to 12 degrees and snow is on the way. Again. Tomorrow's high is forecast about 15. Sigh...looking at the forecast, the temps are going to be up and down and up and down again over the next week. I'm more ready for spring every day, and it's still January.
Having some vertigo issues today...feels all out of kilter even when I'm not dizzy. This sucks. It was bad for a bit this morning and I was all nauseous and stuff too. Glad that passed.
I finished reading Barbara Kingsolver's newest novel this afternoon. Flight Behavior. Magnificent storytelling once again. I might just have to read it again before I give it back to my friend. lol I have a serious crush on this woman. (Kingsolver). The very first book of hers I read was called Pigs In Heaven. At the time it had been out for a couple of years. I thought it was her first, but it was actually about her 4th. I have been in love with her writing since about page 4 of that first novel. I've had about 4 copies of it, because I keep giving it to people to read and not getting it back and then getting another one, and then giving it away. and well...you get the picture. LOL And you know what? Mostly I LOVE that I know so many people who read. Kingsolver is the angel who sings the songs of my heart.
Hoping there won't be too much messy weather tomorrow as I am supposed to drive to a little church about half an hour from here and tell my story at a 12 step meeting. Keeping my fingers crossed.
The little dog is doing an amazing job of not chewing her stitches out so far. The wounds are healing nicely and the areas are clean and healthy I really need to learn more about dewclaws. Are they vestigial ? Hang on...
Never mind. lol It's already Tuesday and it snowed about 2 inches last night, but the sun is trying to come out. The wind has been howling and the wind chill has us at about 0. Better than up north. But still pretty cold.
Alright..this needs posting. Catch y'all on the flip side.
