Pretty well. I’m not quite well, but not sick either. Drippy nose, potential for sore throat and bacterial infection if I didn’t take Theraflu and DayQuil to stop the postnasal drip. But I have. I’m sleeping late in the morning: until 8; but I’m having no trouble concentrating. This morning’s addition is a headache, but not a bad one.
Weather’s staying drippy and cold. I told Jane at breakfast I think we need to devote 2 hours a day to whittling down that massive pile of basalt chips that’s on our righthand half of the driveway, blocking Jane’s car. We have 2 wheelbarrows. I shovel and load a ‘barrow, and Jane rolls it and dumps it where she wants. There are some places we know we need deeper gravel, and we can start with those.
Wind blew over the fishfood and spilled it last night, so I have to make a run to the store to get some more, and I think it’s time to go to winter food. I’d have liked to give them more protein before the chill, but once the water chills into the 50′s, it’s time to switch to wheat germ, which is easy to digest.
The feel in the air this year is of an early winter, and that wouldn’t be unwelcome: we had no-winter last year, which meant pests didn’t get frozen out, and that meant a hard summer of whacking and tending. So I could go with some snow.
