Okay, so I did run to the hills this weekend and I will admit that it was just to give myself a break from the deep freeze.
All in all it was a good weekend and I was able to warm the trailer up and defrost most of my belongings.
I have seen things freeze that most people don’t think could/would freeze. Did you know that dish soap turns to a foamy consistency when it freezes? I do.
Now I am back at it and after that little break I know that I can and will hunker down and continue to make it through winter as efficiently as possible.
Again, another twisted game in my near future is to see how much cash I can save even in the depths of the deep freeze that is this latest cold snap.
After all, all I really have to do is heat me, as in my body, not my trailer . . . I see a lot of my Bear Mode in my future.
As in just not bothering to run the furnace and spending as much time as possible out of the trailer and in a building or in my sleeping bag when I am in the trailer.
Ah yes, that wonderful place called the library is calling me next weekend. I can think of a number of things and projects that I should be working on that can take up my time.
The break this past weekend was needed and did not cost as much as I had thought that it would. I will have to break down and take more of these breaks in the future, as it is necessary.
I will make it through winter and quickly put my budget back on track and top up the Mid-Term Savings Account that I raided for this sojourn.
The view was fantastic, though, due to the fact that I was able to get my favourite spot.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.
