Not much to say today.

I don't have anything very important to say to you all today. My job is going alright I suppose, and Hubbies is going fine also.
It's cold these days, and we don't think the pellet stove is going to keep us very warm this winter. I hope it does, but I don't think it will.
I'm reading a book of short stories by Stephen King "Everything's Eventual" It's actually very good so far. Not all of them are scary stories. The ones that are a little too much (a short story about the guy in the Dark Tower series- that I don't like) I just skip over. I really enjoy reading short stories. S.K. said in his introduction, that short stories are dying out, and that he writes so many each year just to keep it up. Apparently it's not as easy to write a short story as one would think. And everyone wants books. Not as many magazines left that publish short stories, etc.
So I buy books of short stories, great American short stories, short stories of all kinds, just to keep it alive. I do my part. :)
I'm feeling poetic this time of year. I think I will churn out a few poems here in the next few days. I will share if they are any good. I know I should write even when I don't feel like it, but I enjoy it more when I'm "in the mood" to write.
My friend from P.H. might read this, and if so "Hi Friend" You know who I'm talking to!! :)
I might get to switch computers with my husband, before he kills his. It just doesn't like him, or the other way around. Go figure that he wouldn't have any patients for computers. He has to think about it. Our friend he used to work with will help us switch out.
Okay, you all have a good weekend, and week. Stay warm and I hope it doesn't snow on you. I really hope that if it has to snow somewhere, it's on you and not me!!! I mean that with love. :)

There was a fire in C.S. from a pellet stove already this year. But you know who knows how to do those things. You might have to wear sweats. :)

I mean he know how to work those stoves, not how to start fires with them. :)
