Ah! Winter in the North Carolina Mountains = No traffic noise, No Mosquitoes, No Power, Cold Showers —maybe — bring your own water up from the spring or creek, Cutting down trees-splitting your own wood for heat and cooking on the hearth, snuggling intentionally with your companion — babie, it’s cold outside. With all this fun = well deserved sleep! R

Lapis lazuli (/ˈlæpɪs ˈlæzjuːli/, /-ˈlæzjuːlaɪ/), or lapis for short, is a deep blue, semi-precious stone prized since antiquity for its intense color. As early as the 7th millennium BC, lapis lazuli was mined in the Sar-i Sang mines,[1] in Shortugai, and in other mines in the Badakhshan province in northeast Afghanistan.[2] Lapis was highly valued by the Indus Valley Civilisation (3300–1900 BC). Lapis beads have been found at neolithic burials in Mehrgarh, the Caucasus, and even as far from Afghanistan as Mauritania.[3] It was used in the funeral mask of Tutankhamun (1341–1323 BC).[4]” Wikipedia
