Getting the Groove Back
Ok, I am over a cold. I am finished with over 60 inches of snow which came and the four days of teaming rain and ice which is still going on. I need to get my groove back before the walls start to close in on me. I am making tiles -- some for my art donation for Ovarian Cancer and two for orders which need to go out shortly. I am eternally grateful for the GORGEOUS wood burning stove in our new kitchen, since the Caldia (heater) has not yet been installed -- the floor heating pipes are in but they need a heater to heat the water. That won't get installed until the spring, so the wood burning stove is the source of heat for now. A couple of hours of preheating and the entire space feels toasty. Just look at that stove, ain't she purty?
ta ta-ta DA!!!
My threatening letters to file a law suit worked. The ex-criminal geologist has brought me his five-year-overdue-septic-tank report and my architect is running it over to the Commune tomorrow morning (it can only be filed on Tuesday mornings, or she would be doing it right now). This means:
1. there is a chance we don't have to pay the fine of 2500 euros for not officially having a septic tank.
2. we can CONTINUE RENOVATING!! The hold will be taken off of our project!!
Small victories up here on the hill But they have had a very positive effect on my cold and on my mood!
I am happy today, and ready to get out there and CREATE!!!
