suppose, based on past experience, that most days will
be quiet, for the next twelve weeks. Mist is thrilled,
this is the time of year she most loves. Humans are
near at hand, day in and day out.
This is week one of the Twelve Weeks of Winter Tour de Force. Last year I instituted the Eight Weeks of Winter Tour de Force at the beginning of February. This year winter weather arrived in November and we have already experienced almost two months of severe winter weather. In recognition of the increased challenge posed by a longer winter, I have extended the tour de force.
To celebrate the first week of the Twelve Weeks of Winter Tour de Force we will take a trip to the library. The library is always a good time and at last open for a few hours in the evening, opening up a new opportunity for entertainment.
Today several projects are on my list. All the food needs to be moved from the upright freezer to the chest freezer and into coolers to be kept outside. When the upright freezer has been emptied, it will be defrosted and the frozen food will be returned to the shelves. My hands get very, very cold when performing this task, so that it goes very slowly, due to frequent breaks to warm my hands.
Attila has arrived home and is building the second fire for the day. While he is busy with firewood, I will prepare the evening meal, Turkey & Peas Alfredo, which was originally Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo, but I didn't have any chicken or broccoli.

I think these are fox tracks. We also have wild turkey, rabbit and dog tracks in our yard. I saw a few deer tracks as well, when I went for my walk this morning.
