Ogg, be careful now. Dirt isn't all that old. Rocks are what are old.

Fresh coffee for the morning crew.

I think I might spend some time in the shop today. Over 65 degrees and rainy. The perfect time to saw up some wood.

We had a little over an inch in a hour earlier when the front went through. Probably another half inch over the rest of the day.

Fresh coffee for the afternooner crowd.

I got all the lumber cut for a half dozen planter boats with trailers. When it warms up again next week, I'll screw, glue, and nail them together.

Ah - coffee.
Just the job on a damp January morn; thanks.

Different morning, different temp. 28f, feels like 18f. A 40 degree drop from yesterday.

I'm staying in today. Fresh coffee anyone? I'm thinking, patty sausage and biscuits for breakfast.

Coffee please, Tex. I need a big one. Long busy morning. Must be the weather. Back to my story this afternoon. I'm writing up an Apache mission at the moment and there's a lot of reference back to my Apache books. Starting up an Apache and taking off loaded for bear..... still, my proof reader has been thru 5 chapters and only minor corrections. This is good.

Latte and writing. I'm gonna figure out this poem if it kills me. It's turning into something of an essay.

I think the batteries died in my pen.

Tuna salad for supper. Something different.

Fresh coffee to thaw the evening crowd.

I left SoCal because of the lack of rain. Here in the PNW I can look out the window nearly every day from October to June and see drops falling in my bird bath rocks. It's uncannily satisfying.

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

The natives here are prone to saying "Water is life." They mean it literally. People who live in places where it's plentiful tend to lose track of its importance.

It sounds like you remember.

I didn't like the lack of precipitation, but I don't think I could handle as much as the PNW gets. I like moderation. I get some rain and some sunshine where I am now. It is a nice mix.

But there is nothing moderate about SoCal. Too much heat, too many people, too much traffic, and too expensive to survive.

Same here, wind is roaring outside. Not much snow yet but six inches expected and high of 14 tomorrow.

Did something to my neck/shoulder. Couldn't get comfortable to sleep. Finally did and the munchkin wakes up with achy leg. Get that sorted and now she's coughing. Oy vey.

You really do have an active life with that munchkin, don't you.
Sympathy.

We got dry[-ish] roads and about +6C, but it's overcast and not a nice morning.
Yeuch !
Who's move the coffee-pot, then ?

HP, your morning comes in the middle of my night.

Okay, I'll make the coffee. I also brought in a box of sweet rolls. Help yourself.

Coffeeee, more coffeeee.

Finally got to sleep after three some time, slept in a bit. Putting coffee in. Not going anywhere today. Laundry, cooking, writing and maybe some sorting. Depends on how this shoulder thing slows me down. Grrr. It's always something.

Hope everyone has a good day.
