Snow coming tonight. Maybe 7”. T cooked up a batch of homemade biscuits (made with homemade lard). Slat country ham and Tillamook chili pepper cheddar. We’ll be fine.

Not Like Winter

Christmas Day and today both warmed above 70 degrees. Another coming midweek. I’ve lost count, but that’s more than I remember in my lifetime.

While T napped and read on the porch swing, Doug and Jenn and I took the kayaks to Hatton Ferry and floated down the James for a few hours.  

  Saw one jonboat in the distance, briefly; otherwise, we had the river to ourselves all day long.  

  Not natural, but glorious even so.
