Oh, the weather outside ...

... is frightful.


But the fire is so delightful.

** As you can see, I still didn't take the reprieve nature gave me to clean up and "winterize" the yard. I think my wash tub might, actually, be frozen to the ground ;).


  1. My wheelbarrow is still leaning against a tree, covered in snow.

  2. I'm snickering just now - because your washtub may be stuck to the ground. It happened to me with some flower pots and a wooden crate when I lived in Minnesota. I had to wait until the Spring thaw, and still broke the crate trying to pry it loose.

    Oh well.

  3. Eh, just like we get these storms blowing thru you'll probaby get a nice chinook to come thru and loosen it!

  4. I like the contrast of the bikes against the woodpile in the first picture. Three bikes cloaked in snow, waiting for warm summer days to return as wood stands ready to ward off the chill of winter.

  5. I'm dreaming of a wood stove - perhaps one like yours.
