I continue to muddle along with a moderately clean house, dishes washed when necessary and an energy level that goes up and down like a roller coaster. Each morning I wonder what it will be today. R has been getting up earlier and dashing away, sometimes before BF. He seems to have hit a high energy spell. Good for him. When he leaves early, I can go out and do things - if there is no snow/ice and it's not bitterly cold.

Today I went out to clear the car of ice and gave up. I park facing the sun but it had not had time and I ran the engine to warm the windshield and found it cost as much gas as driving to the store. Turned it off, not yet cleared, and came back inside. With the Prius, I have become more hypersensitive to fuel consumption - it tells me. I would have gone to the Ile but maybe I will walk down to the river; it is up to minus 9C whatever that is -COLD.

All morning on the computer: FB, finances, emails. Keeping the fire going in the den last couple days. Nice little stove; good wood. Heater went off, again, a couple days ago. Started the fire, R did what he does - "I have no idea"! It did not get too cold as there is supplementary heat in the basement, and the wood! He tried again in the am and the house was warming by bedtime. Hot water heat: it takes a while for the water to get warm! Professional - HAH! maybe a visitor will have an idea - but not so far. Anyway, it will be spring in a few weeks!

Sun gone; lunchtime.
