Brrr.....

Antisthenes says that in a certain faraway land the cold is so intense that words freeze as soon as they are uttered, and after some time then thaw and become audible, so that words spoken in winter go unheard until the next summer. ~Plutarch, Moralia

The floor is finished! And, yes, Charity -- I'll take pictures. First, though, I have to go get stuff to protect the floor before I move everything back in. I need to get some small rugs for under the bookcases, and some pad thingies for under the desk and a rug AND a plastic rolly thingie for under my chair. I'm down one bookcase, though -- it broke because I thought I could move it half full... ha. I gave it a tug and tipped it a bit and it fell apart. **sigh** Books are heavier than they look.

It's bitterly cold here. It's not so much the temperature, per se, but the high winds. On the weather site, it says we'll have a high of something like 27, but the real feel is in the single digits. It's miserable. We all have cabin fever, especially the dog. She's all but literally bouncing off the walls.

I'm taking the turkey out of the freezer today, and thawing it in my garage. One good thing about the cold weather: we have an extra fridge! LOL...

I'll brine the turkey overnight on Weds and then hopefully figure the baking time correctly. We have almost never had it done on time. You'd think with as many years as I've been cooking turkeys, I'd have that part down.

In any case, I'm behind again because of the flooring project, so will hopefully be spending the day working. It's tough -- both DH and DD (and Dd) have been VERY needy the past couple of days.

You Are a Purple Crayon



Your world is colored in dreamy, divine, and classy colors.

You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.

People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.

And while it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it's paying off!

Your color wheel opposite is yellow. While yellow people may be wise, they lack the manners and class needed to impress you.



All of these quizzes make me sound like a stuck-up snob... I don't think I'm a stuck-up snob... lol

We're having similar weather. Eyeball-freezing coldness...ugh.

Way to go on the floor! So happy you got it done. Bet it looks pretty.

Hope you have a peaceful Sunday.

I would really like to see pictures. Hope you get settled in soon.


You Are a Green Crayon

Your world is colored in harmonious, peaceful, natural colors.
While some may associate green with money, you are one of the least materialistic people around.
Comfort is important to you. You like to feel as relaxed as possible - and you try to make others feel at ease.
You're very happy with who you are, and it certainly shows!

Your color wheel opposite is red. Every time you feel grounded, a red person does their best to shake you.

To me, it sounds like you are doing things just right, getting all these projects finished now so that come January, your schedule will be perfectly clear and you'll have a beautiful (peaceful) new environment to work in.

But... your garage is warm enough to thaw a turkey? I think ours is about 10 degrees right now.

As for me, I am a blue crayon:

Your world is colored in calm, understated, deep colors.
You are a loyal person, and the truest friend anyone could hope to find.
On the inside, you tend to be emotional and even a bit moody.
However, you know that people depend on you. So you put on a strong front.

Your color wheel opposite is orange. Orange people may be opinionated, but you feel they lack the depth to truly understand what they're saying.

Yeah on getting the floor in! I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures!

It's only 20 degrees according to my computer. And I have to go out into it. Time to head to my mom's to house sit. Bringing the laptop but will have minimal internet. Lots of writing!!!

I bet you're happy the floors are done.

You Are a Yellow Crayon

Your world is colored with happy, warm, fun colors.

You have a thoughtful and wise way about you. Some people might even consider you a genius.

Charming and eloquent, you are able to get people to do things your way.

While you seem spontaneous and free wheeling, you are calculating to the extreme.

Your color wheel opposite is purple. You both are charismatic leaders, but purple people act like you have no depth.


Have a good Sunday.

Sorry to hear a bookcase broke. At least the floors are now done and you'll have a lovely office to work in!
I hope your cabin fever is relaxed soon.

I'm a green crayon. Hmm.

Have a restful Sunday!

You all always get so much done! It scares me, Marianne. Sigh.
