The woods have turned to their winter colors. This time of year you can see all the trunks of the trees. If you are into counting trees, now is your time.
It’s the season when there is a fire burning all the time in the wood stove. Joy is opening the wood stove door in the morning and seeing a pile of hot coals.
The chickens and ducks enjoy anytime the sun comes out this time of year. The chickens, particularly, are not fond of the rain. The ducks, the more rain the merrier. For them, rain of forty days and forty nights, floods to the horizon, is their wildest fantasy.
