I know there is a way do word wrap these images but I can't figure it out on blogger. These are my photos of the winter storm. The house belongs to a neighbor. The fancy backyard is a friend in Rogers Arkansas. The field is uphill from us. The power went off at 4:30ish this morning and came back on a few hours ago. The greenhouse and everything in it survived the greenhouse being without a heater all day. I moved everything into one corner of the greenhouse and turned the littler occolating heater so that it would be hitting everything. Chris got the job for the company hes been waiting on but he won't start training for two weeks. Until then he called up a friend who is a manager or all of the local subways and there giving him enough work to continue making his car payments.A little while ago my husband said he smelt something burning. we turned on the lights and started looking around and find the back bedroom (where I keep all of my seeds) is full of smoke. We can't find a fire but we do find a hot spot in the wall near the fireplace. We've had a leak in the roof where the chumney meets the roof for a long time and have just not done anything about it. I think maybe the water rusted the metal chiney pipe through and the smoke we were seeing was leaking out of a hole in the fireplace. Since the power was back on anyway we put the fire out. We've been planning on on ripping out the fireplace and doing a wood stove with a glass front in it for a whole now. I guess that will have to be the spring project.
I still feel down in the dumps. I'm starting to worry this might be a chemical thing. I've had problems with Clinical Depression in the past and I really hope it isn't starting again. I feel like I should be happier. Its a few weeks before spring rush. I'm a third of the way through my first Novella. I've created 7 cross stitch patterns for publishing. I should be happy, right? I'm not.
