I've become accustomed to its hum, the way it comes on loudly and continues to purr, but in a couple weeks, it will probably be gone, a memory, and silence will reign for the balance of winter.
We're retiring the furnace that has been in this house since it was built in the mid-1960's. It's old. The guy who came by this weekend to take measurements and give us estimates was really tickled. He'd never ever seen an old Chrysler furnace before, and he's been in this line of work for many years. He thinks maybe it belongs in The Smithsonian. Ha ha.
And this is a totally random picture that reminds me that I haven't been to the movies in a long time. I haven't seen Life of Pi, and I'm very curious about how they pulled it off, and I haven't seen Lincoln, which probably isn't any better on the big screen that DVD, and I haven't seen Les Miserables, and I'm not sure I'm ever in the mood for something so sad, anyway.
And tomorrow is another Monday and the end of another weekend, but I actually ran outside today for the first time in quite awhile, and discovered that I've gotten a bit out of hill-running shape, since I never use that incline thingie on the treadmill. Heck, to be honest, I haven't been putting in many miles at all lately, especially on Sundays. So, today was an accomplishment, even if I felt slow and out of it. Oh, and I finally finished a long novel and will read something lighter next...
And tomorrow is the last Monday of January. So. Any thoughts?
