All's Quiet on the Western Front



It's a windy 44 degrees at the White Wolf Mine on Arizona's Mogollon Rim at 7,493' above sea level.  I'm expecting about 6" of new snow and construction continues but the fireplace wall in the great room is finally complete and the wall around it is painted. 

It's a 72" TV. Not the biggest. Donated by my loving daughter to the hovel when she upgraded to an 86" TV. Yes, it's a bit higher than is ideal for viewing, but I don't watch that much TV.

I'm using the opportunity to place a few books on the shelves on this quiet Sunday. This set up should hold about 1/3 of my books. There is another book case in the den, but it still isn't enough space. I'm culling, sifting and deciding on which books make the grade and which books remain boxed in the garage. I may donate some books to the library in Payson (about an hour's drive south of me). Payson characterizes itself as a 'mountain community', but they're 3,000 feet lower than I am, up on the Rim.

The fare for dinner is bowtie pasta with pesto sauce and cherry tomatoes, and panko chicken, with a green salad.
