a long-overdue post that no one but the spambots will notice...

************************************************************************************************

and so it needs to be made...

the first snows have come up here in the pointylands. thus begins the winter of my discontent...with winter. *sigh*

such is the price to pay for living in such a wonderland the other xxxx months of the year, whose number i dare not say, for they are so varied. oft-times we have no spring up here, at least not in the way the flatlanders know it. and 'fall' can last for quite a long time before we're ready to actually give it over to winter proper. i'm still not ready. there will still be hikes, just slower; more weighed down with protective gear and just-in-case-garb. clunky snowshoes will replace fleet sleek hikers, spiked poles instead of mere sticks to offer support over what were merely splashed-wet, not ice-slicked rocks...cold noses, fingers and toes replace sweat trickling down mid-back and shining forehead. such is the way of the seasons.

we've been bringing home dozens of tomatoes from our garden-space, many green and some wizened before their time, lest they become verdant ice cubes and popsicles. no-one here likes them fried-green, as is the southern way, so they rest in the windowsills hoping for miraculous reddening. we'll see. the heirlooms are amazingly hardy. would i could learn from them?

so yes, there it is...another turning of the seasons. what else can i say? see you all on the other side...
