An update from the frozen tundra

I am thrilled to announce that I am now the proud owner of 100 gallons of heating oil, delivered this morning by a four-wheel-drive pickup truck after the driveway was plowed and sanded yet again. With normal heating it’s expected to last two weeks—I fear not long enough to get a break in the weather and clear the driveway completely. What ever happened to the January thaw? Oh well, I’m getting used to 60 degrees at my computer and 55 degrees everywhere else. It’s the new normal.

I’m trying to take my mind off this frigid weather by browsing through seed catalogs and making some tentative plans for my 2011 vegetable garden.

And, yes, I’m starting to read again and will offer a mix of old and new titles next week.
