Couldn’t Get Warm

Have you ever had one of those days where you could not get warm?

That was me today.  I hope I’m not coming down with something, but I was chilled to the bone and no matter what I did, I was still cold.

But, something did warm me up inside.  I got a very nice birthday gift from Kathy and a most appropriate card.  In the box was a can of hot cocoa (dark type) and a box of very, very, very good and fresh licorice.  The outside of the card said something to the effect that she couldn’t have asked for a nicer brother.  The inside of the card said something to the effect she knows because she asked her mom and her mom said, “No.”  (This is funny, because Kathy always wanted a brother, and I always wanted a sister.  So, we adopted each other as brother and sister.)

I also got a couple of ties from my dad.  Ironic that they both arrived on the same day.

We had the results of our energy audit presented to us tonight.  The biggest hitters were making the house less drafty.  It looks like there are several small insulation projects that total about $7700. 

Oh, and our new renters moved in.  We have been without a renter in that unit for so long.  This is really nice to finally get someone in that apartment.  They are really nice people too.
