I was deeply touched yesterday by an act of kindness from one of my Kids who shall remain nameless for fear of embarrassing said Kid. Kid realized I had not posted in a timely fashion and called to ask if I were okay. It's a good thing I wasn't down with the goats because Kid was going to head up the hill, weather be damned, if I hadn't answered the phone. No need to ask why I love my Kids.
There is a difference between no satellite and no power. As long as we have electricity, I can use the DVR even when there is no real-time television. I keep a stash of stuff I've recorded and not watched just for such occasions, and yesterday I immersed myself in Shakespeare, "The Hollow Crown," Richard III's story of mayhem, intrigue, and madness. The production is chock-full of the best of British actors who somehow managed to speak Shakespeare's difficult cadence in a modern, conversational style that made the dialogue so easily understandable. There are worse ways to spend a day.
Snow turned to rain late in the day and it's raining again/still this morning. It's freezing cold. Bessie's trip outside was don't-blink-your-eyes fast. I'm late for my date with Stove. We're becoming best friends!
It was a good day.
