E scores!


It's over. It's really over. Next stop, spring break the first week of April. Full school weeks until then. The chances of another snow day decrease daily now. Up through March 15, we can still get one heck of a storm, but it's less likely with each passing day. Rain tonight I hope. Rain would do wonders for the ice. So will day after day above freezing and a few nights above freezing as well.

Spring peepers are maybe 3 weeks away. I like to sit bundled up in a down quilt outside in the dark and listen to them. I like to take an old tape recorder down to the pond and get a full tape of their sound every year. I played that for my workgroup a year ago and it gave them all a headache to listen to it for 45 minutes straight. Not me. Life's blood.

The girls have been venturing out more and more. I need to change the calendar over in the coop. I forgot and none of them reminded me. They must have liked Mr. January. Or the concept of a calendar escapes them. It escapes me half the time.

Once the snow melts I'll be out in the cabin again. It just got too cold below 20 degrees.
