My trip north brought me to a whole other climate. Up here, it’s officially winter. We’re talking longies, parka, snowboots, and serious mittens. I’ve gone on some snow adventures, but now I’m cozied up by my favorite kind of stove (propane) and about to do some school work. It’s amazing how restful it is to spend time in other people’s houses; no worries about the plumbing, the thermostat, the recycling, or snow removal. My biggest decision today was about fruit condiments– cranberry or applesauce as a side to the amaaazzzing turkey pot-pies we made.
