Four degrees in the bathroom this morning - several days now since we performed our toilette in below-zero conditions. There is still snow on the ground, and the water for the chickens and the cats is still frozen in the mornings. There's still no water in one half of the house, and Mama spends more time in the woodshed splitting firewood than doing anything else.
Sunshine and shadows
Viggiona, a brisk uphill walk through the woods from Carmine.
