Cool spell

Posted on Friday, November 14th, 2014 at 2:07 pm

Got to 32°F last night.  First freeze of autumn.  Split pea soup (chili, onion, garlic powder, cayenne, and basil) tided me through the snap.  Myka even ate some.


Myka climbs down trees the proper way, hind feet first.  No more ladders when she gets on the roof.  She also got her first non-surgical scar this week, over her left eye.  Might be a cat or a rodent.  I didn’t hear any caterwauling, so I’m leaning towards rodent.  She’s starting to become the keeper of the yard.  And she is over her surgery.  The cold doesn’t bother her, but she likes cocooning in a blanket when she sleeps.


Had a major DVD burning session.  Close to 50 in all.  The first day, I had 16X writes.  On the second and third days (mop up), 4X was the max I could get.  Strange, same discs, same settings, nothing obvious.  But it’s done.  I can put the player away for now.


Life rolls on in winter.  I hope I can get through this one with grace.
