Someday soon this pile of stone will be my fire pit. I'm thinking a three foot high curved wall to maximize heat and light, and to minimize these damned mountain winds. Until then this old tractor rim will have to suffice.

It's 11C outside and 24C in the greenhouse. The cob wall and water jugs appear to be doing their job. I'll report back later.

Like my jugs? Heat sink, baby! The water filled jugs and the cob wall should go a long way in regulating the temps in the greenhouse.

I've determined the inside of the oven will be 42" wide by 40" deep. How deep, she asked? Forty Two inches, baby.

I wonder what the stats are on murder/suicides of couples who chose to live in a tiny home?

Time to put in the earbuds, and listen to today's NA. While redoing the clean dishes drying in the rack that are now covered in blood. I hope today's episode will keep my mind off the throbbing pain in my thumb.

My lettuce was shaved way thinner than what the missus managed. I didn't complain to her, though, seeing as how all my lettuce was covered in blood.

I put it back on, with some Krazy Glue, iodine and a heapa gauze. We'll see what happens.
