And since the snow conveniently fell during Reading Break, and I have all kinds of work to do at home, I'm going to settle in and enjoy . . .
Poor Pater, meanwhile, is shuttling between shovelling the snow off the roof (our skylights are darkened by several inches of snow at the moment), then clearing the walk, then heading down to the docks (a kilometre of unplowed road away) to shovel snow out of our boat. . . .And by the time he gets home, it's almost time to repeat the cycle.
I've urged him to dig out his cross-country skis -- several of my neighbours swished by me on theirs yesterday while I was out walking. . .
As for me, though, my next task is to fetch some kindling. One cozy woodstove fire, coming up . . . I do hope you enjoy these photos. . .
