winter hours

Tomorrow I begin to have my "winter hours" at the store, open only long weekends, Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon. Today it snowed in town at a chilly 30 degrees and WINDY. So, I decided to begin today with winter hours. Bleh... I'm depressed with it all. I HATE the thought of going back to winter. We hardly had a summer, I worked hard all summer, the weather was crummy. Bleh... All I did today was sit, drink tea and surf the web. I'm supposed to be doing research as we are starting to carry teas blended with our lavender and further I should be working on my lame-o website. Bleh... The trees are bending sideways in the wind outside. Only 16 more days till we touch down in Hawaii. I'm sure that will turn my frown upside-down.

Thinking about yurts... thinking alot about yurts.

I've had a fancy for yurts for about the last 20 years or so. I mull them over and over, have researched the hell out of them. I know that in the end, they are more expensive per sq ft than building a stick frame cabin. But, I still am attracted to them. I can see Thomas and I with a yurt in Hawaii, with our dreadlocks and drinking fermented noni (just kidding, more like POG and rum). Anyway, we are very seriously considering a yurt for a number of years until we can be on island for longer periods of time. And, yes, we know all of the negatives about putting a yurt in an area of such high humidity, etc. (I lifted the pic of the yurt of Colorado Yurt Co's website, very cool and we will go through them if we do go yurt.)
