Lots Of Different Things [Jan. 18th, 2017|10:28 am]
Tony Grist
Frost. Temperature well below freezing. Horses grouped round the butts asking for something to be done about the ice- and I went to do it only Julia got there first.

By which time the man who empties the septic tank once a year was already parked up and pumping away. And the dustmen had been and gone. Lots of coming and going- because we also had a delivery from Sainsbury's to sort out. Plus Ailz's mother rang, plus my daughter rang.  Matthew had brought Julia over in their pick-up and went away again with a box load of my old archaeology magazines which they'll be passing to a friend who is studying the subject at university.

Alice says she's been dreaming about having conversations with me and her grandmother- though she forgets what was said. She's also started painting her own Tarot cards.

It's rare in the life we lead for so much to happen all at once...

I stayed up a little later than usual last night because there'd been rumours that some important Trump-deflating news would be coming in. I suppose they meant the defamation lawsuit that Summer Zervos is posting against him. Too early to say whether this is a big thing or business as usual. Probably the latter. After all, his people voted for Trump in spite of knowing about the pussy-grabbing and (to be even-handed) Bill Clinton's people went on supporting him in spite of the Lewinski affair and the accusations of rape.

Still silly mild here for all the forecasting!

It's actually rather a nice day- cold and crisp with the sun shining.

I'm wishing for some of that!

(although it can be easy to forget that the Millennials weren't around for the Lewinsky scandal, so for a lot of younger people I suspect Bill C. is known more for being Hillary's husband than anything else...)

Yes, I suppose so.

I tend to forget just how much time has passed since the Clinton presidency. For me- with a memory that reaches back to the Eisenhower era- it's recent history.

When I woke up this morning to a light dusting of snow and -5c I made a cup of hot coffee and then took a bucket of hot water down to the hens - clearly not awake enough to remember that I culled them a few months ago!

The weather forecast this evening said we'd be down to minus 7 tomorrow. Brrrr.

My house has literally no insulation and I heat it with fires in the sitting room and/or kitchen... So it's really not unusual for the sitting room to be 15C when I get up in the morning (and since I don't heat my bedroom that is often closer to 5 or 10C in the morning...), but isn't that what thermal underwear was designed for? Thermal undies and Viking blood!
