Busy day today-- homeschool, trip to the dump & post-office, wood to buck, big chunks of beef to cook... it's nice to have a portable computer (I guess this thing is called a laptop, although it rests on the table).

Dawn was slow coming and the world was white with frost. It takes the sun a long time to climb over the steep canyon wall but when it does the temperature rises 40 degrees in about half an hour.

Time for a riverside walk.
