It's chilly and I have heating and the hotel is fine. I started to say it wouldn't age well, but it is fine.
My co-worker is also here doing the heavy lifting - literally. Schlepping equipment and being there early and making things work and coordinating with vendors and it's all good. So I'm leisurely sipping coffee and will wind my way there. A short walk that I'll make on this crisp day through a charming town. No driving required.
Of all the lives I could be living, that the worst right now is having to leave my crazy pup behind with people who are kind to her - I think we'll be all right. Hope the chickens are tucked up snug because it's cold, and they'll be fine. It'll all be fine.
I'm hoping to convince my entertaining co-worker that he wants to stay at my house and watch Ziggy for my next trip. Fingers crossed.
