The wonderful repairman was able to come out and repair our heating - it was indeed the blower motor which had shorted out and he said we were very lucky it didn't catch fire. There was lots of noise up in the roof that scared the Dweeb silly ....but I just took it in my usual stride.
While we we were waiting I helped Mom cook up a batch of lemon biscotti (it was also a nice way to warm up the house). Here I am in MY cooking corner as I like to call it. I am always in this spot when Mom is cooking (ready to taste test anything she makes - or that falls to the floor.) We even got to have a bit of noggins (the ends you can't use) - it was yummy. Mom is just waiting for them to cool and then the bottom will get dipped in lemon flavored white chocolate. Anyone want to join us for afternoon tea?
