wordful wednesday: colder nights

"'You don't need to use the woodstove unless it gets bitterly cold.  The firewood bin is there in the hallway, and you'll find a woodshed at the back.  The house has been unlived-in this autumn.  The electric heaters are usually sufficient.  Just make sure you don't hang any clothes on them, or it may start a fire.'

Blomkvist looked around.  Windows faced three different directions, and from the kitchen table he had a view of the bridge, about a hundred feet away.  The furnishings in the kitchen included three big cupboards, some kitchen chairs, an old bench, and a shelf for newspapers.  On top was an issue of See from 1967.  In one corner was a smaller table that could be used as a desk."

~  Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Several years ago, the incredibly impressive Eden Kennedy of Fussy.org founded "NaBloPoMo," or National Blog Posting Month, where participants are challenged to post every day for the month of November.  I don't usually participate since I'm pretty good about blogging on a regular schedule, but this year I thought I'd give it a try.  This is pure madness, of course, because I have some travel coming up and a somewhat crazy schedule, but what the hey -- let's give it a go.  Starting yesterday, I will have new content on this site every day, including weekends, through November 30th.  What I lack in quality, by gum, I will make up in quantity.
