Whining today...

Thursday, January 07, 2016

I have minus 15 C in my house, that is cold. I think the heat pump I installed two years ago can not deal with temperature below -15, it is -20C now. Listiening to the weather report that says that a low pressure will arrive and bring snow and warmer temperature. They say during the upcoming night but usually it takes longer... I am just happy if this will not last for weeks as it may do in january.

I have this neurotic attitude towards cold weather. I think it is because I grew up in an old farm house and in a time where cold weather meant frozen water, frozen cars and even frozen sewer which ment no toilet. During all my years as a riding teacher cold weather meant dealing with frozen water drinkers, ice at doors, frozen wells etc. etc. I have really done a lot of thawing in my days... and nowadays I have nothing to fear. The water in my house works, +15 is a bit cold but no catastrophe, and the bathroom works... I have warm water flasks in my bed, I have a lot of warm clothes... but I worry, because what if.... and what I should think is that I am no an Eu-migrant fron romania living in an unisolated caravan without electricity...

Doggy is having problems with his paws

Continued decluttering yesterday - the books! I got rid of half of my "horse" literature, I will probably never more work with horses but I am still keeping some of them for nostalgia... My crammed bookshelves are suddenly more roomy and airy.

I will have to choose small areas to declutter for the rest of january, because the worst is done and my home looks kind of tidy, that is not so good for motivation. But it is not, I still have a lot of cupboards and storage that needs to be handled.

    You are making great progress with the decluttering! Doesn't it feel good?! One area will continue to lead to another. Small steps are fine; it is a process!! Stay warm, I know you know how. Hugs.

    Thanks for a great reminder. Rainy days make me uncomfortable because the remind me of a terrible season with my ex-husband. I need to find a way to let that go. You continue to inspire me. Thank you.

    I am so glad I read this. I have been whining about driving in the snow and freezing rain. Now I feel ridiculous. Thou Shall Not Whine....the 11th Commandment in my Bible. LOL!

    I needed to read this and I too am decluttering my house....even donating extra Christmas decorations that I really don't use anymore. It is a process.

    I love your attitude of gratitude. It is inspirational.
