Cold Hobbit Hole

      I live in a hole in the ground; it’s a rectangular hole with two windows. Unlike a Hobbit hole characterized by rotund warmth and the promise of comforting food, my home is cold. Here in the dead of winter, my electric heaters have failed me. My room is only cozy in looks. All day in the rectangular box which is my bedroom, classroom and music room, it can get uncomfortably cool. I’m learning, however, to layer my spring-appropriate wardrobe to approximate winter wear. Or sometimes I’ll just go find a brother’s unused thermal shirts.
      A blanket works, but restricts movement. Tea or coffee powered heat only lasts for five to ten minutes. Maybe I need to go shopping for sweaters…or just stay in bed.
