For this area, we are in a brutal cold snap. The timing couldn't be more terrible. I have had very little outlet for end of quarter madness. It is simply unpleasant to be outside.
I am using space heaters with my pellet stove to keep the house warm. Everything is encased in ice.
I started off the morning defrosting my hummingbird feeders. Yes, that is Emile photobombing. And yes, I know I should bring them in at night. If only someone would do it for me.
I am tried out hand warmers on the base of the feeders today (since it is so cold they will just refreeze outside). I saw it online. I am not sure that they are impressed with this.
My Wrens come every night and collect around the front door. They have a small nest up there and I have been able to count up to 5 of them coming out. I feel so bad for them and want to get them another little house, but hopefully there is enough room for everyone and they are keeping warm.
I have been taking notes for the past few days leading up to today's final. Emile has been eating them. He is so shameless he will sometimes try it when I am right there.
My study breaks are all about Panda Cam. I am surprised anyone gets any work done right now with these guys. Now that the twins are living together and they are mobile it is almost non-stop entertainment (the other twin is in the bushes by the way...causing mischief).
While I studied the cats traded off pellet stove snuggling.
Nim has done his best today to remind me just how terribly bored and under-exercised he is. He likes to lay it on thick that his pad injury is my fault.
He got a bully stick for exam time.
The final exam was three hours long and I am proud to say I am done. I am done with the final, done with the quarter, and done with this accounting certificate!
