In this new house, I actually keep the home fires burning.


It's -1° outside and this is how we keep warm!

I translate a little at my desk, and then get up to stretch my legs; I poke up the fire, add a log, meander to the kitchen to get a glass of water with crushed ice, stop by great-grandmother's clock and listen to the peaceful tick tocking, and then translate some more. 

Sigh of happiness.

This sounds like the perfect way to spend the day. I'm sitting here by the wood stove, watching the Waltons, blogging, all the while not feeling good.

Seems like a pleasant way to pass those cold winter days.

You are so lucky that you can work from home. I would not want to leave that lovely fire either.
