Is it really winter here in central South Dakota?!? It is 62 F here. I sat outside this morning and enjoyed the sun on my face. Last year we were up to our hips in snow. The landscape is so brown and boring I picked up my knife and chipped away at another snowman. Woodcarving or whittling what a marvelous excuse to sit outside and do almost nothing.
The trees are candles from my childhood, some still have the tag on the bottom 10c. There is no cent sign on the keyboard anymore. My wood chips are trying to imitate snow.
