It's cold out there... *shivers*

Made it back from my accounting course.

Now my fingers hurt. It's -7°C (around 19° Fahrenheit) out there and my car door refused to close properly. So I was fiddling around in the cold - without gloves, of course, because my gloves, while warm, are really *thick* and you can't do any fine work with these. So fiddling with the car door lock required my fingers. At least it finally decided to close - for the way back.

On my way *to* the course, it didn't. So I took a tension belt (which I always have in my car), looped it around the inside handles of both doors and cinched it tight. And drove to the accounting course with my door roped shut! ^____^;

Unfortunately, the arthritis in my upper finger joints doesn't like cold at *all*. So the upper finger joints are hurting. >.< Very unpleasant. I'd really like to have a pair of gloves that's warm, but thin. I'm not sure if something like that exists. Because most of the time I need the gloves when I drive in the winter. My car, being old, has all sorts of little malaises that I need to take care of before I can drive off, and it takes a while to warm up *while* I'm driving. So I can't have gloves the size of boxing gloves. Haven't found anything properly thin *and* warm, yet...

Aside from that, accounting was ok. I'm starting to understand the basics and really, that's pretty much all I need. I leave the serious stuff like taxes to my CPA. I just have to be able to do the day-to-day stuff. I think I will be able to handle that after this course. So, two evenings done, six more to go... :)

Thank you!

*snuggles Amarissia and the Choir*

Well... I'm not really an accounting fan, myself. On the contrary. But I can still handle it better than my partner, so it ended up being my job. Though I confess I *do* like to see how our business is developing - and the numbers tell me that. I also like to calculate prices and such... but it's all the legalese, and the rules and regulations and the taxes and the endless paperwork (despite doing most of the bookkeeping on the PC) that gets to me. >.<

Oh well... once I've gotten the basics, I should be able to handle it.

Now all I need is a nice handwarmer... :)

Eh... *spits out feather*

I'm... trying... to find... space for him... at my desk...

*waves away more feathers and dust*

I'm not quite sure that will work out! I think there's only room for *either* Patrick or me here in my office!

But thank you *so* much for offering! *HUGSNUGGLEHUG*

*hugs* Sorry to hear about your hands hurting. That is damn cold weather to be out in with or without gloves.

*HUG*

Thank you!

It's supposed to get even colder... >.<

I've never liked cold weather, but my hands like it even less. Oh well... Guess it's a sign of impending old age... ;);)

You're only as old as who you feel. *sends some heat your way*

That always depends on the day... ^___^

Sometimes like 20, sometimes like 90... *gg*

Oh! Those look interesting! Especially the ones on top, with the two fingertips open. Would make it easier to tie things or fiddle with recalcitrant locks!

And 10 Pounds doesn't sound too bad... Now to find out what they want for shipping!

Thanks for pointing those out for me! *HUGS*

Did you survive your 'meeting' with the gecko from this morning? ;)
