We had a great day yesterday. It was lovely and hot. It’s been so chilly lately, but summer was back for a day. I did spend my time stoking the fire and it got to be quite tiring.
The temp of the pool when I started was a verrry chilly 14 degrees C!! I started the fire at 7:30 am, by 2:30 it was 21.5 degrees, and R and his friend were in the water. Yikes. Still too cold for me. By 7:00 pm I had warmed it up to 26 degrees. Still not quite as warm as I’d have liked. The ideal temp, I find, is 29 degrees.
We used ahhh-lo-hot of wood. In fact, R and I need to go searching for more if we want to heat it up today.
And guess who called me last night? That bookstore!!! They want an interview Tuesday night. Yes, that’s the same night I was to start at the department store. Sheesh. I feel kinda bad, but I accepted the interview, phoned the department store and changed my start date to Wednesday. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent thinking and worrying over this situation. I know. I know. It’s just a clerk’s job, but (as my friend, G, pointed out) it is where I’m choosing to spend my time instead of with my family. So, it’s important. If I have to be away from them at least I could be happy, right?
Today, my friend, L, is coming over to cut J’s hair. It’s so nice to have a friend who is a hairdresser.
