this (cold) morning
a low in the twenties last night, high of thirty-five or so today. it's cold here. the greens are protected under plastic, the wood pile is being visited often, and I had to change out frozen chicken water this morning. it's been a jammies-until-work, sit by the fire all morning drinking tea and reading books kinda morning. our cat, Ziggy, is snuggled up on my bed.
a good sort of morning to have every now and again, I think. or more often, if needed.
papa will be coming back home tomorrow. he promises to bring some bagels from NJ for his little lass who announced she is so, so hungry for bagels. bagels, then. but no venison. and that's just fine.
we girls are talking about making some homemade pumpkin pie tomorrow for his homecoming. there are two big pumpkins on the table and one of them will meet the oven after ballet tomorrow.
