DAY 288

Woke up to a 53 degree house...I knew something was not quite right yesterday when it seemed so chilly in here! I only had to endure a few hours of cold until the furnace man fixed things right up for $337...argh. Had to buy a new ignitor - a ceramic and metal thingy the size of a large spool of thread. Until now, the word "ignitor" was not in my general vocabulary. Oh well! Grateful for the house and the means to keep it warm.

Went into public in a combo workout/pj situation (mail, bank, doc) to save the clean clothes for my trip. I will not make a habit of that. I am certain there are some rules about going "out there" and I want to be sure and adhere to basic societal standards...on the other hand, does it really matter what one wears? Clean - yes, it is best. Appropriate coverage - for sure yes. Age appropriate - mostly yes. In "style" (whatever that really means) - no.

I can remember my brother offering my Mom some unsolicited advice on the coolness factor of a white visor she was sporting at the time. Apparently not a big fan of visors (not that there's anything wrong with visors) he told her, "Once you're 50, you probably don't care what other people think about what you wear". Not even really a sideways compliment, but I think there is some truth and freedom in there! Thanks Bro!

Wear what you love - is my unsolicited advice...even if you have it in every color! All of us have a uniform of sorts - I kind of like that. What's your uniform? Besides the actual clothing what do you "wear" every day that give others a sense of who you are?

Hmmm - deep snowy evening ponderings - better wrap up before I start making up haiku...Have a Nothing New Day! Kristin

  1. A furnace repair may be necessary for a number of reasons and is not too uncommon in homes with this type of heating system.
