Well they closed work today at 2pm. I expected it since we have ice storm warnings for N TX. I was scared to drive home but didn't encounter anything iced over...not even the High 5 at 75 and 635! I got home in 45 minutes but found that I had forgotten to bring in the starter wood and pine cones I use to start the fire in the stove. I have tried everything I can and can't get the fire started.
Last resort...I went to the garage to get kerosene and found that my can was missing.
So I am bundled up in sweats and socks and waiting for the starter wood to dry out.
In the mean time....dinner is a bowl of HOT home made lintel veggie soup with corn, okra, garlic, tomatoes, and lintels. And with that two pieces of hot home made corn bread.
Later I will make a pot of hot Mexican cocoa, and will watch the two movies I just got from Netflix....No Country for Old men, and In Pursuit of Happyness.
Outside it is still misting and drippy but the temp is at 33 degrees. It will start freezing soon I think...or snowing.
