What's more, the weather for the beginning of this coming week is going to be much colder than we usually get this early in the winter season.
How about a low tonight of 6°F? A high of 13°F tomorrow and down to 4°F tomorrow night? Oh, ya, winter has arrived.
"Welcome, winter. Your late dawn
and chilled breath make me lazy,
but I love you nonetheless."
- Terri Guillemets
"Winter is the time for comfort,
for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand
and for a talk beside the fire:
it is time for home."
- Edith Sitwell
(We've kept this fire in the kitchen
wood stove going all day.)
"The fire is winter's fruit."
- Arabian Proverb
I've definitely been hit with a bout of lazy today, and I'm enjoying our good food, and am planning on plunking myself on the couch in front of the open living room fire for a few hours tonight. Welcome, winter!
