ChimneyMy thumbs hurt. I'm not sure why. I was probably careless with my weightlifting. I'll try to stay off of them for a couple of days and see if that helps. My hands and wrists are always right on the hairy edge of an injury. I type a lot--probably more than is healthy. It's such a hard life that I lead.

I had a small fire yesterday. Years ago, I built a fire every cold day. I stopped that when the furnace blocked up and nearly killed me. Keeping the chimney clean is harder with the metal roof. I have a million excuses. The biggest reason that I quit having fires is that I grew tired of them. Perhaps I'll start again some day. Yesterday, before I had my fire, I took a picture of the chimney to be sure that everything was clear. It wasn't perfect, but it was plenty clean enough for a fire.

I'm just four days away from completing my first month of reclusion. It seems like it just started. I've barely touched my food stores, which is odd. I suppose that I filled the refrigerator so thoroughly that I'm just now clearing it out.

I have to remember to look at something far away tomorrow. Focusing on the horizon is supposed to be good for the eyes and mental health. I'm probably missing out on that since I don't drive around (or leave the house). I have to remember to do that.  

I wish I had something interesting to say.
