Winter is coming GiST #21

1. Every day is a day closer to April and spring
2. Getting the dogs winter lean-to house all warm and snuggle BEFORE the weather got cold.  And remembering to shut of the water to the outside hose before the tap froze.
3. Kuchma has decided he is going to become a house cat in his old age.  He sleeps in the house at night but wakes Tanya up every morning at 7:00 to be let outside to do his 'blutions then comes back in for milk and cat food. Tanya has to wake me to take my turn at getting up early as I don't hear him at all.
4. Watching the dogs munching walnuts and spitting out (most of) the shells.  They were helping Tanya rake and burn leaves under the walnut trees and discovered walnuts were edible.  They are not as clever as the ravens at opening them but since they can crunch the nut, they don't have to be.
5. The doves are so pretty; light brown or light grey. This must have been a good season for them as there are many of them roosting n the walnut trees.

  2. The thought that every day is a day closer to April is ALL that gets me through the darkness, dampness and cold of winter. One day at a time.

  3. I think I would love your village in late fall early winter. It sounds beautiful.

  4. In many ways it is lovely, Ky. There are lots of leaves of all colours and one can still rake and burn leaves so the air is filled with the smell of "fall". The late fall flowers colours are all reds and oranges too.

  5. eight to twelve inches of snow predicted for northern Maine tonight. The wood stove is pumping and the cat is snuggled close theo the hearth. Winter has come to Maine. It is good to appreciate where we are.
