No pictures since it is dark when I come home, but the weather remains mostly above freezing, the snow is shrinking and there is much grass to be seen, although not here on the riverbank for some reason.
I am glad it has turned this way. This old house is charming but it has a problem with howling arctic winds like we had last winter and the beginning of this. Â Although it helped when I put strips of cloth or paper in the gaps between the wall and the floor in the study, and plastic bags in the gap under the door in the kitchen. Â These are keepers, even if the weather is milder now.
Being able to go outside without icy wind biting into the skin and bringing tears to the eyes… it reminds me strangely of the feeling of forgiveness.
