(As a side note, did you know that a roasted marshmallow is capable of burning the inside of a person’s lip? Well, it is. Last night Tyson fell victim to a particularly hot marshmallow and the inside of his lip is now all white and icky looking. Poor kid. He’s been sitting with a pouty lip since last night, even in his sleep!)
We do not have central heat out here, which I believe I mentioned before. Instead we have a space heater, which does spit out a good deal of heat. The problem is, it’s so concentrated that your legs end up feeling like they are on fire and the rest of your body is still cold. Last night the kids both had on winter hats and two pairs of gloves. I can’t say as I blame them. It was pretty chilly last night.
Back in Michigan we had a few very friendly postal workers who picked up and dropped off our mail. We’ve heard there are some areas of the city that do have postal workers, but for the most part, you are the postal worker. You bring your mail to the post office to be sent and most people here have PO boxes and pick up their own mail. We are “sharing” a PO Box for now, but at some point we will have our own. I really do miss the convenience of someone else coming to get my mail for me as it now requires some forethought on our part, to make sure we take the letters along with us when we go out.
That’s all for this edition.
