I guess it’s not new learning but a reinforcement of old learning. When someone says they “challenge their beliefs regularly” it means they turn a deaf ear to any contrary opinion so they can say their beliefs hold up to scrutiny by everyone. Without ever having to- you know- challenge your beliefs.
I do have plenty for which I am thankful, and I spent most of the day enjoying that with friends and family. Still busy as a longtailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.
Not permanent, looks like it will be in the 50’s and rainy by next weekend, but the ground is white. Not my idea of fun. But I fired up the snowblower last night, and it’s ready to run, and hopefully the garage floor heat will be going in this weekend.
