|St. Francis is looking especially stoic among my frosty Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ this morning.|
|Viola ‘Sorbet Midnight Glow’.|
It’s a decidedly nippy 20 degrees here this morning. The sun peeked over the hill about an hour ago but the needle on the thermometer in the woodshed hasn’t budged — and it’s in direct sunlight! Everything is coated in a thick silver frost, like someone neglected to dust for about a decade. I had to bring the chickens’ water font inside to fill it earlier because the outdoor spigots are frozen shut.
What a great day to stay inside and stoke the fire! Maybe I’ll do some unnecessary baking. I’m dying to try out Cooking Light’s new Triple Chocolate Muffins.
I hope you all stay warm and don’t have to work outside today. (Boy, am I glad those days are behind me.)
P.S. Sorry about the Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire reference. I am not a fan, but I couldn’t resist.
