Apologies for the lack of recent updates, but we received quite a quantity of snow here over the past weekend, and as a result, have spent the last several days snowed in together. Now, the downside to this is all the shoveling and plowing and cold and inconvenience and lack of time to write for this blog. On the other hand, however, we have power, plenty of food, and a wood-burning stove, and there are few things in the world better than being snowed in with Joy. Imagine coming in from the cold to a nice, hot fire and a nice, hot wife…what could be better than that?
Snow emergencies, such as this, are serious business, and they call for emergency rules to be set in place to deal with things for the duration of the event. I was forced, I’m afraid, to set such a rule, and it has proven to be well-advised. Until we manage to dig ourselves out, whenever there is a fire going in the wood-burning stove, Joy may wear nothing more than panties around the house. She normally gets cold, you see, but the stove keeps the house so nice and warm, that it seems a shame to waste the heat. Plus she has such a lovely selection of panties, and it’s an excellent opportunity to show them off. I allowed an exception the other night when she cooked dinner and let her put a bra on–she was worried about potential spattering of oil–but it came off again once the food was on the table.
Funny how the heat of the stove seems to lead to heat of another kind, isn’t it? And how a little shared adversity will bring people closer together? Anyway, today will be more plowing and digging. I imagine we will break out of our isolation and into civilization again here one of these days, and that will be nice, but honestly, what’s the huge hurry?
That’s the news from here at our place…
