This isn't how I was figuring to spend a hunk of this Thursday of my week off, but I'm glad I did. I've put in a coupla storm windows too, and am about to go out and top off the bird feeder and tie the gate shut--- the latch no longer catches, as the fence has settled.
Gosh, maybe I can get a stove AND get the yard cleared and sorta-fenced and then get a dog after I get back from my travels in the spring. A dog would be easier with a fenced yard, right?
I don't want to get all carried away, though. It feels like fanatasizing about what to do with lottery winnings, but it's maybe not even a fantasy.
It's cold out. I've got an Imgur Secret Santa gift to get ready to mail, and other fun things on my to-do list. The house is a mess, but life is good.
