Off to work



      Well I am ready for work.  Bright eyed and bushy tailed....not.  Tired.....yes. 
 
      My calories for today have been 1475.  Pretty good.  I am drinking water even.  It is easy to get the water in in the summer but I have a hard time in the winter.  I want coffee.

     I got some replies about my MIL's stove.  Isn't it cool.



    I emailed a company that restores them and makes a lot of money for them.  I would love to see someone else get 50+ years out of it.  I also had some interest on the furs.  So we are moving right along. 

    I never knew my MIL had furs.  They were buried in the back of the closet.  There isn't much call for fur coats these years.  Too politically incorrect.  I have never been too PC though.  It just gets to be a money making cause for so many.  Money for their pockets and not a real issue.  I would never condone killing animals just to wear their fur though.  Seems rather silly when there is other things you can wear. Most of these animals are so beautiful and no one has ever looked as lovely in their coats as they did.  However, these are what they are and I do need to sell them.

     It is 10 degrees outside.  Burrrrr.   I wish I could bury myself in my warm bed and go to sleep.  This is suppose to be my day off.  My body keeps telling me its my day off.  My finger is also going to cause me problems it seems.  It is starting to swell and looks infected.  Darn thing.  I just can't get the rest of the wood out.  Hopefully my body will push it out soon.  You should see the way I am typing. 2 fingers stuck up in the air.  Prissy me, LOL.

   Well, I have wasted enough time.  Time to get ready to go.  Sleep tight all.

Might have been a good night to wear one of those furs, burrr. The doors on the stove look like the doors on some types of washers. I have never seen a stove like that. Sparkling clean too. I hope the rest of that splinter works itself on out soon. Helen

OUCH on the finger!! I hope that gets resolved soon.
I love that stove your MIL had. Wow that's cool! My friend Joey probably would have bought that. He loves old appliances. I didn't even know that they made them like that.
Hope your night is going well.

I've been reading backwards.  Is that stove a Chambers?  My mom had one for 40 years.  She then put it in the basement.  She got rid of it when my dad died so they had it 50 years.  I'm kicking myself because it still worked.  Chris
