Despite a few days of rain and some temperatures creeping towards forty degrees, it is certainly gettingToasty warm inside as the moon comes up over fresh snow. colder, overall. Winter’s perennial arrival is unfolding. To accompany this change of season, Ryan and I find ourselves fielding questions from friends and acquaintances alike.

“How is the cabin?”

“You must be burning a lot of wood?”

“Were you warm enough last night?”

“Was the cabin cold this morning?”

We are touched by friends’ concern, and flattered that our well-being is at the forefront of their wintertime thoughts. Such questions are certainly valid, as we both have spent past seasons living in colder and less-heated abodes. However, we are pleased to assert that our cabin is: warm!
