So, apart from being a nice long weekend (Family Day up where I live) I got something in the mail called a “Bowl Cosy.”
An acquaintance of mine decided to be nice and send me that little thing around the bowl that will keep the bowl warm.
This means that my oatmeal will stay warm longer in the morning. As well the bowl of dinner will stay longer at night as well.
It was a nice gesture and one that I appreciate.
As for me, I am still just trundling along trying to get through February and on into the warmer weather again.
I know the weather has been warmer as of late, but today is a reminder that the cold stuff is not done with me yet.
So, there was more questioning of my life’s choices (past and present) and grumbling as I got through the morning routing.
A routine which included warming up my ladder so that it would open so I could climb up it and brush the snow off of my solar panels.
Ah well, things are not all so bad, and every day I stay out here moves me that much faster towards my goals of home ownership.
If I could figure out a way to do this without being cold and without sacrificing savings, that would be a welcome option.
As it stands now, I either keep doing what I am doing, or I pack it all in, get a place and work and build up savings until I “retire” at age 67 or whatever it will be when I ge there.
I will just keep working my plan and worry about the future when it gets here. All I can control is what I do here, today, this week. The rest is speculative.
As always: keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
