Sunshine again today! It is getting colder, though. This winter has been characterized by extremes. Warm days, then cold, then warm again. These old scales we bought in St. Francisville a couple of years ago seem perfect to illustrate this winter's balance of days.
And here is St. Francis himself as he overlooks the garden. I need to get a better picture of him, but he manages to protect the birds, rabbits, and squirrels that visit throughout the year.
I didn't get home until about 9:00 last night, but I was so close to finishing the biography of Anne Boleyn that I gladly devoted myself to reading.
My gosh, January has simply flown by! All my good intentions have drifted to the wayside, and I'm going to have to review my standing in a few days with little to show. But February is a new month! I can simply begin again and hope to achieve a bit more.
