Today’s post is brought to you by the Doctor Who Christmas special, bountiful leftovers, and firewood.
This is the third day of frigid temperatures here. This morning’s ‘feels like” temp is -10. I think it’s actually 4°.
The forecast says much of the same for days to come. I feel like the goats could really use some pajamas right now.
Indoor temp was barely 50° when I woke up at 5:30. Three hours later it’s 57°.
As if I didn’t have enough anxiety entering my dreamworld, I’m now having nightmares where we run out of firewood.
I have to leave the house this afternoon for a dr’s appointment, shopping, and library stop. It’ll be nice to be inside where it’s actually warm but while we’re out, the woodstove won’t be fed and the temp will drop inside again. How annoying.
I need a babysitter for the woodstove.
Despite the cold, I’m enjoying the school break with my offspring. Mostly with the older offspring who are home from college. The younger two are driving me, each other, and everyone else bananas. There’s plenty to do so it’s not entirely a matter of them being bored. I think they just enjoy being chaos creators. Their break can’t end soon enough. How did I ever home school?
