This is going to be a short post – I don’t feel like writing and I don’t want to spend an hour and a half staring at a screen and getting nowhere again.
Today wasn’t great. I spent most of it steeping in self-doubt and being unable to haul myself off the couch except to worry around the house, chasing the stupid ghosts and sitting in front of the furnace and hot water tank. I sent out my texts then fiddled around with some 3D design stuff and then went back to the couch. I watched part of some crappy movie on Netflix (no shortage of those, it seems).
The replacement part for the printer arrived. I couldn’t gather up enough enthusiasm or confidence to do the swap. Fortunately, it still works with the broken part.
My folks called this afternoon. It was good to hear from them.
At some point later in the afternoon I wandered over to the sewing machine and got another towel
[Something just made a big %&*@$# boom. I think it was the roof, may have been the deck. I can’t find anything wrong inside and it didn’t wake J up. It’s very cold out tonight and the house always makes noises when it gets really cold. ALWAYS, even since the first winter after we moved in, and everything has always been ok. The deck might be leaning against the house a bit but that shouldn’t be a problem and there’s nothign I’m going to be able to do about it at 1AM on a bitter winter night. It’s a normal sound, just something shifting slightly in the cold. The house is 50 years old, it’s bound to make some sounds. I don’t think it came from inside, everything looks okay – the pipes aren’t frozen and everything looks normal and where it’s suppose do oto be. The fireplace is running too and the fan is circulating the heat in the basement so that’s working properly. Even if the furnace dies, the fireplace should be able to keep the house from getting too cold before morning. While I typed that laest sentence, the furnace fired up normally and seems to be working fine. I will do another wander around in a oucple of minutes to make sure things are ok]
I got another towel done. It wasn’t much but it was better than nothing I suppose. I’m now out of green fabric, moving on to blue next.
Spent most of the evening downstairs, accomplishing very little.
Tomorrow’s another day.
