Minx . . .hogging the heater. . . .of course she is!!!

Lights are back on. . .

We now have no heat and no hot water since September 30. . . .

We do have a heater (2-story, high ceiling). . . .

Look who is hogging the heater.
In this predicament . . .Don't forget the Electric Blanket.
We will be having 20 degrees at night and possible flurrys.  
Not sure when we will have heat. . . .workers aren't here. . .

 This is my Apt and the neighbors Apt on the corner . . .
no lights on the building.  
These are SOLAR lights and should come on as soon as it is dark.
 Evidently no electricity . . .they do NOT have to be set up, just add electric.

If you are coming up to my front door. . .
this is what it looks like
and the apt. number cannot be seen. . .
nor can anyone be seen breaking in.

 This is my building. . .lights at the top balcony
but there are NO lights on the bottom.  What
light you see is reflections of 2 lamp posts 
in the bottom windows.
We   have had a burglary. . .and 
we do have "bums" come through the complex.

Our temperatures are in the 30s, 40s, and a few70s now.
Still no hot water nor heat. . . no idea when it will be on.

Where I Live

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

No hot water. . .  No heat. . . Since 30/Sept.
I have a 2-story and this is what we have to heat 
our whole Apartment.
30s at night and sometimes 60s or 70s during day.

 Our Robins have been gone awhile.
 Squirrels still around.  .   . some of them.
Put on a heart of compassion, humility, gentleness, and patience, which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper.”
