Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Obsessed With The Snow
I can't explain what it is about the cold and snow of winter, but I love it. I adore it. I'm finding myself obsessed with it...when the weather's like this it's hard to spend extended periods outside so one must find indoor things to occupy themselves, so what if I fill my time with everything snow and cold...the bad part about it for you is that's what I write about...I hope you bear with me through these winter months!
Last nights sunset was crisp, clean and clear...
...while today's view teased me with speckles of snow flurries every now and then (look closely, you can see a few dots of snow in front of the trees)...
...with distinctly unique flakes settling on the ramp...
...and wrapping with what looks like a dusting of snow on the mountains that are just a stones throw away. Better to be able to see fresh snow in the distance than not at all...and we do still have snow on the ground, it's been too cold for it to melt.
So I've spent my afternoon creating in the kitchen, experimenting with cooking en papillote (in parchment paper)...more about that tomorrow, let's just hope it was a success. You'll hear about it regardless!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
