So what on my to-do list actually got done? I woke up at 4:00 a.m. and went out in the living room. I turned on our new heater. This isn't exactly the wood stove of my dreams but we had to have a new heater anyway and decided it might as well be one that we liked so Phil and I got an early Christmas present for ourselves.
The four pie pumpkins barely fit in the pot.
Phil has been busy too. Yesterday he put new locks on his toolbox to his truck because the others were broken and wouldn't lock any more. Then today he had to put new front brakes on my car and then vacuumed it out (apparently he thought my car was dirty). After that he raked some of the front yard while the cats tried to destroy his piles before he could get them picked up.
I am about to cook supper and then I'm just going to relax for a while. Anything that didn't get done will just have to wait until...next time.
