The Y has been closed all week, no lap swimming. The roads have been too icy to drive and almost everyone in Atlanta has had the week off, including city leaders – City Halls are closed, no mail delivery, no garbage pickup. Anyone would think we’d had 30″ of snow. Nope, only three.
I’m about as antsy now as a kitten with worms. Painting, painting, more painting. Oh, and caulking the bathtub, what a joy that was. Walks on slippery ice with neighbors and one longer 2 miler today in an effort to get the old heart going. I still could have swum another mile. Lung power, baby – it’s where it’s at.
Some finished, some in progress…all from the past week and a half.

Next winter I’ll buy a woodstove just in case the power goes out in another ice storm. Not going to risk those brand new copper pipes. Jotul’s smallest is the one I have my eye on. And a few bags of rock salt for the roads.
