Back on the Mountain

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tamika and I arrived back on the mountain last night and it’s COLD!
We’re having the coldest day of the year today (- something or other).

Late last night when I was about to go to bed I discovered a present. Mouse droppings!
Lots and lots of mouse droppings all over my bed!
Yes, not only was our room freezing to the extent that I could see my breath, but a mouse, or mice or rats or who knows decided to use my duvet as a latrine.

So I spent the night curled in a ball wearing layers and layers of clothes with no sheets or comforter.

At least I can say things are pretty much getting back to normal. Oh, it was nice to be home for two weeks.
