Oh, how lovely today it feels outside today! As I write this, just before evening, we are at a lovely -8C/18F. the wind chill is -13C/9F, but the wind is from the north west, so the yard is well sheltered from it. The outside cats were quite enjoying the warmer temperatures! Creamsicle Baby even followed … Continue reading Some unexpected things
Time to snack on delicious pine cone seeds. 🙂
