It’s another day of frigidly cold temperatures here in Western Canada. -46 degrees C with the wind chill. I’m feeling it in the house, too. We have a twenty year old furnace that, needless to say, isn’t that efficient. It’s funny how cold temps can boost a furnace replacement up on the list of financial priorities.
We have spent the last two whole days in this house. We might just have to brave the cold this afternoon and drive into town. Maybe go to the library. I have a bunch of books that came in and I also have a parcel to pick up. Nothing too important so I don’t have to go. But you know. Cabin fever and all that.
We’ll see how it goes. It kind of depends on the kids. If they get stir crazy they tend to bicker more. A jaunt into town might alleviate the tension…for a couple of hours.
January’s almost over but February, I find, is the longest feeling month of the year even though it’s technically the shortest. I’m always ready for winter to finally be over.
Looking forward to spring/summer and the warmmmmth.
On a – eh hem – “lighter” note, the diet is going okay. Although, I’m finding I’m so much hungrier these past few days. It’s challenging in the afternoon to not munch away thoughtlessly. Maybe it’s due to the cold. Some instinctual thing, perhaps. He he he, well that’s MY story anyway! And another good reason to get out of the house and away from the pantry.
Keep warm everyone.
And for those of you who live in warmer climates…
