We will be terrifically mindful of heat leaks -there are tons!!! - before winter arrives in Quebec! First - the fireplace chimney; we plan to put in an insert/wood stove and close off that major heat leak. The 1902 windows: even with "modern" storm windows, the breezes are amazing. Lots to do.

Today is chilly and drismal. Wrote a couple emails and need to do a few more, then decide what energy level I have for what needful things. Oddly, I don't want to go to the city on such a yucky day even though it makes more sense than going on a gorgeous day. This am at BF, we felt a real need for the, as yet unmoved, microwave which I did not feel up to carrying yesterday. I have often wondered if there are heated plates/bowls for adults like the ones we used to have for little kids. R eats so slowly, he often reheats things twice during a meal.   

R did not get home until 11 pm. I am concerned that the trip (30 min) may become odious for him, so I asked. No nasty headlights on the quiet, traffic-free trip through the Reserve, a time to decompress and glad to get home to a parking space and trees around him. And I had food ready, then the local paper to read and a comfie bed to crawl into.

I do miss him when I am away, and he misses me. Thinking of you, Michelle!
