Usually mornings, one of the first things I do, after I check on the coffee, is look out the window and get a read on the temperature. It's impossible these days though with all the snow accumulation. Note behind Molly, walking on the table, and out the window, the snow bank is pretty high. It covers the outside thermometer. I'm thinking positive though. The woodstove, cranking in the kitchen, is keeping it warm and toasty, and the small painting, of the Wells' marshes by Yelena under the mirror, has got me thinking July. By the way, you don't want to know what's falling outside these windows right now. Yesterday the temperature was warm about 35°F. Snow was melting a tad. Today... only about 4 inches added. Do the math.
