Heat is Good in this weather

I hate it when ordinary emergencies interfere with both holiday plans and writing plans! But I don't have to write about it because My Angel did! Here.

I spent WAY too much time finding out that no store with the older-style filter and gasket that our boiler uses was open on Saturday, January 2.  Finally resorted to calling my Fixit-Friend, who happened to be in the restaurant across the street from the Menards I was at!  Got advice and parts, but it took WAY too long.  After taking too long on Dec 31 and Jan 1 to do various things connected with figuring out why it was leaking and what to do about it. 

But the nice repairman who didn't want to interrupt his family plans on New Years Day at least told me I could make a temporary cardboard gasket.  Currently, we're checking it regularly for leakage; we want to wait until a slightly warmer day to replace it, since replacing it means turning the heat off.

And right now I'm typing in a winter coat with fingerless gloves.  If I'm moving around the house, the temperature isn't bad, but for sitting still and typing, it's COLD.

Summer will be on it's way soon. I can feel it cool down a bit here already.

In Milwaukee, Summer will NOT be on its way soon. Eventually, yes; all the worlds' turnings are proceeding on schedule. But there's months of freezing weather still.

P.S. My Angel (now mystique_muse has a couple of pieces of her poetry on her new live journal, which you might enjoy.

Thank you. I popped over and read they last week but only got around to really reading them today. I was a bit shy to comment but said hello on one of them :)
