Baby, it’s cold outside.
Walking Stewie was not the most pleasant as it was raining lightly along with the humid cold.
It is a fireplace kind of day, the second one of its kind this weekend.
I need to get a handle on the e-book I am reading, ‘Grant’ by Ron Chernow. I had read ‘Hamilton’ by the same author and loved it. With ‘Hamilton,’ however, I had the luxury of the huge paperback that I did not need to return. With ‘Grant,’ though, I have borrowed an e-book and I need to get on it. I have done twenty-five percent of the book and I have had it for about five days.
The embers are beautiful, the fire is crackling, and there is a pretty hefty log doing its job, going from being dry hardwood to a fire infused morsel of living room warmth and hearth drama.
Stewie and I really moved when we were outside, or at least I did. He is totally oblivious to the weather unless he is outside too long on a below zero day. He doesn’t mind the rain or mist and is perfectly happy to get down and dirty in the pursuit of canine play and squirrel chasing. I tested out my Under Armour ‘Storm’ sweatshirt by wearing the hood in the rain. It kept me dry and for that I am thankful. My jeans are still damp and that fire in the hearth is helping.
Here is to a day of reading a good book by the fire.
