Into The New Year…

The furnace was down overnight but Aaron Heating was out first thing and we’re back up to 60º F. It never got lower than an indicated 51º F. Sweet! Our relatively minor (compared to east of the Mississippi River in N.A.) cold and snow has lingered, leaving the streets semi–clear except for those patches of black ice to keep you on your toes…

Ian resumes school tomorrow after the long break. I predict wailing and teeth gnashing.

I’m investigating using a shelf in the Arvada Gardeners green house for starting some veggies two to six weeks before the typical ‘last frost’ around Mother’s Day. That means I get to actively peruse those seed catalogs yet again! 🙂
