[morning sun and smoke]

a typical morning

i'm up with the morning light, which is a little earlier everyday.. this morning the clock read 6.19a.. the fella is snoring lightly and i can feel a chill in the air.. i know the wood stove has burnt out over night.. i contemplate snuggling under the comforter for a little longer.. but - than i think of my hens, they are on the same solar clock as i.. i quietly shuffle out of the bedroom and look out the dining room window and sure enough, there are 3 cute chicken faces looking out their little window..

the house is 62 degrees, so i quickly get the wood stove barked up.. then husk a corn cob, grab a hand full of sunflower seeds, a chunk of suet and some peanut butter on bread.. [my chickens, chickadees, woodpeckers & squirrels].. critters before coffee.. [so i can enjoy it guilt-free]

i pull on my muck boots & the fellas sweater over my shorts & tank top and head out into the 21 degrees.. the chickens follow me straight to the pen.. they always seem so happy to emerge onto the day.. [me too] sunrise is 6.27a this morning and i turn to see the first rays of sun hitting the smoke billowing from the chimney..

I love your story.  Firing up the wood stove?  When we camp in our RV, the thermostat switch is right next to the bed.  Awaken, reach up and turn on the heat, wait 3 minutes, all is warm.  smile

It did snow here first, but disappeared faster than it came.
So hopefully if you do get it, it will be the same for you!
