My batteries think so, too.
Of course there’s a price to pay for that…
Even so, it was actually very pleasant to make my rounds this morning. I did the chickens and then went and checked on Landlady’s mousetraps and some properties I normally look in on from time to time, just to catch up. The snow is squeaking and I left the Jeep up at Ian’s turn-around because sliding down the steep part of my driveway is no fun at all, but other than that it was quite nice. I find to my surprise that, after all these years, I’m finally pretty well equipped for a long cold spell.
The temperature is scheduled to warm up on Saturday, at which point all this snow will turn to mud and I’ll go back to hating life. 🙁
ALSO: I find that I have been remiss! I’ve not paid the slightest attention to my Paypal account, and was just this minute informed by the TUAK Chief Financial Officer that several people have hit the tip jar in the past, er, month or more. Sorry about not acknowledging that, but the truth is I forgot it was there. Serendipitous, though, because I was just fretting over how much propane I’ve burned through so far this winter. Thanks to all who contribute, at the tip jar, care packages, or just commenting from time to time and letting me know you’re out there. I do appreciate it.
