The cool damp makes sluggish morning spiders easy enough victims of bird breakfasts that I’d expect to see more wings across the field after a dewy dawn.

Overnight temps into the upper thirties are expected within a week, and smoke will once again curl out of the chimney–off and on, to start–then only ON until the first week or two of March. Tending the fire is kind of nice. At first.
Of course this projection of the season ahead is based on a normal winter. Is there any such thing anymore?
