This is one of my favorite bits from the British TV show, "The Young Ones":
And that's how I feel sometimes.
"God, I'm bored!" And it's another game of travel Scrabble.
Luckily, I don't have anywhere I need to be today, but I do have lots of little busy-body activities, like sorting through old magazines and such, to keep me occupied.
That's a good thing today - we had some snow last night and a light dusting on the ground this morning.
When the Evil Twin came in from work yesterday, the first thing he started on was a fire.
He has become quite the "Hearth Master" as we like to jokingly say.
Oh, he works those fires, my friends.
The bad thing is that once the fire dies down, it feels a little chilly in here. The thing can put out more heat than we anticipated. Which is great - we're always concerned about the power going out and the house getting too cold. We don't have to worry about that this winter. We can all gather around the fireplace for a bit - our electric company is generally very good at getting the juice running again quickly.
Well, those two weeks of Fall we had were nice while it lasted.
I'm outta here for my day of busy work.
