It's Cold in These Here Hills

Just past noon, and the themometer reads 34 degrees. We've had snow sprinkles on and off all morning, but I don't reckon they are going to amount to much. (Can't call them flurries, more like salt from a shaker coming down.) The woodstove is cranking, filled to the brim with hickory, so it's warm in the house. I don't think I could have put on enough clothes to stay warm when I was out feeding the animals earlier. So it was nice to come back into the heat.

Kevin started his new job yesterday and I've got to admit, it's nice to be up all day long again. Out of bed by 5 am and probably hitting the hay around 9 pm, so that's good. Will be even better when it's not dark when he leaves and dark when he gets back home. Oh well, the winter solstice is tomorrow, so the days will begin to be longer than the nights again.

I just finished updating the website with another chapter in the ongoing saga of The Sawmill Project. Unlike regular content writing, these articles (and accompanied pictures) are fun. Mostly top of my head writing, keeping it simple and yet, trying to be entertaining and informative too.

Happy Solstice to all that celebrate such things, and Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to everyone. (How's that for trying to be all inclusive and PC?) May 2006 be brighter and better for all.

same thing spitting from the skies here. The weatherman said it won't amount to anything either, but there is a hint of some white stuff on Christmas eve.
