Warm Evening, Cold Morning

It takes a special kind of gumption to get your butt out of your warm bed when your house is -15C. You could say that it took a bit longer than usual to get out of bed this morning. I was warm though, and made sure to wear my warm hat to bed so my head was warm too. 

Yesterday evening I was warm enough and relaxed at home, and even had the furnace up to plus 15C. I tried to read the chapter I needed to read but didn’t quite make it, okay I barely started it. 

This morning I did read it and then read the next chapter one time through. Once again I will read it today or this afternoon so I stay on schedule of one chapter per weekday. 

As I was relaxing yesterday evening I saw a police car parked across the street from me, in front of a construction site. I was curious so I went out to say hello. He was just doing his paperwork and wasn’t there for little old me (why would he).  

This evening I will do my bookkeeping, as I really need to get into the habit of doing this once a payday rather than once a month. I want to keep my bookkeeping on track as it does me good to look back and see where I have been and where I am now. 

I am looking forward to this weekend and not just because I can be in the warm library and use their heat and power. I will pick up steam and read through chapters more as I get going this weekend. 

A few ideas on what that wayward chapter should be is starting to form in my mind. We shall see what happens and if it does come to fruition. The one that I want to add at the end is not coming.  

I find myself just getting through the days and hunkering down during the nights as I look towards the future. I hate winter and I hate the cold so for me to go through what I am going through is doubly challenging. 

I look forward to spring and the warmer weather. I keep my mind focussed on what I need to pay down and how wonderful it will be when I am finally saving for me and my future. I am on track though, and that is important.
