The cats went out for exactly 30 seconds today. They turned around and rapped on the sliding glass door to be let back in. Now they are sleeping together keeping each other warm.The house is chilly even though the heat pump is keeping up with the temps. It is times like these when I miss being in my straw bale much thermal mass house. This townhouse has little air leaks that I have to fix, and it is those little leaks that create uncomfortable cold spots.
Well, I'm not riding, not because of the cold but because I managed to pick up a light version of the ick Selene got. I'm feeling a little achey and just slow.
stay warm! I find a few candles both brighten things up and raise the temperature surprisngly well.
oh, and I keep meaning to ask you about bookshops in Bellevue for a friend who's visiting campus and staying in Bellevue. I said just take the bus in to Elliot Bay...
I've spent most of the past 24 hours bundled in sweaters, wool socks and lap quilts; my hundred-year-old house has no insulation in the walls, and I'm reminded that I really should have replaced the weather-stripping around the doors last fall.
That it's also bright and sunny out just feels like a tease.
