And here is your Weather Report: Storms and electrical outages followed by the blessed return of power and seasonally appropriate snow. Excellent treats at Cora Stoppert’s house on Christmas Day – breakfast at Chris and Sonny’s later that week – lots of good books to read evening after evening – three feral kittens to feed in the barn up on the second ridge – a fine New Year’s Eve party down at Stone Circle (inside, by the fire in Terry and Wendi’s new woodstove) – and a lucky New Year’s Day supper out on the Flat Road at Verdant Ground with stories. It is possible that someone, somewhere, has had a better time than we have had, but we don’t know of it. Miss Sadie, the Cowboy and I are content, and hope that you, too, are having a good start.
Tomorrow I will have more time at the Library and will play catchup, posting Babs Young’s photos and generally getting into mischief. Keep warm, have fun, and do a little good too.
