The appraiser from the bank came by this morning to look over the house and property. That seems to have gone very well and things should continue to move along apace.

It is chilly today, sunny and windy but above freezing. The forecast for Saturday, however, is for light snow with temperatures staying below freezing and dipping down to 18 [-7.78 C] at night. Oh, joy.

My plan for the day is to get my hair cut and then do some work on the novel. I may not do much actual writing, but I want to go back and read what I have written and make notes about where to add/subtract and when I notice contradictions in the text. I should at least get the names, ages and occupations of the characters consistent!

Otherwise, I hope to have a relaxed day. This is Sheldon Cooper night for me, and it looks like they are airing a new episode. 

Hope your own day is a happy one, that you enjoy some peace and still get enough done to feel good about yourself at the end of the day. And never forget: a good nap is a worthy accomplishment indeed!

In this house, a siesta is a common activity. 18 Fahrenheit? I don't think we've gotten down to 18 Celcius yet. If we had, I'd be complaining!

When I entered the Carmelites, the friars had come from Spain via Mexico to the American southwest, bringing with them the tradition of an afternoon quies, a nice Latin term for that holy hour when everyone stayed quiet and those who wished could enjoy siesta. It is one of the sacred customs I maintain in retirement.
