Yesterday the snow arrived. It wasn’t too cold, just a tad chilly at 20 degrees, but as often happens when winter arrives it does so with a sudden sharpness that can cause even experienced mountain dwellers to shudder and stay inside.
Warm in the cabin with sun gloriously streaming in through the windows I thought it would be a great day for a hike, to get the new snow, the sun and the blue sky but once outside the hike was decidedly short and back inside I went.
I snapped a few pictures and ducked back inside to make tea. I was just getting settled to do edits on Through the Barrier, (something have been putting off) when the Snoring Bear aka the Virgo #2 came asking if I could help him.
Down in the shadow of the mountain the skirting has not gone back up on his 5th wheel since he moved it from one side of the yard to the other a couple of months ago. While my Little Cabin was still in the sun shine, be it heavily blocked by the trees that have not yet been thinned, he was well in the shade.
Part of being partners in such an endeavour is that one persons needs are the needs of all. So down the mountain I went. We worked on thawing the drain lines and then waited for the foam board to arrive. (virgo #3 had gone to go pick it up) Unfortunately, it had not arrived when he had to go to work so with a look that bagged for help, he said, ‘if you get inspired feel free to work on it.’
On my walk down the road to his place I found two dropped treasures that are not from anywhere within a mile. I wonder who dropped them and where they came from.
So for the last hour, I have been outside, the temperature steadily falling, working on the skirting.
My fingers and toes a bit on the frozen side I decided to needed to come in, warm up and most my pictures from earlier today. Maybe tonight, or tomorrow I will post a few of the work I get done before the sun sets.
