Settle In

snow 1-12-15The weather turned cold last night
and colder air is coming.
Check the light in the cellar
stock wood for the fireplace,
put gas in the tractor and put on the blade,
add bedding for the hens,
bring the dogs in by the fire,
let the cats curl on the couch,
add extra quilts to the bed,
turn the water on
just a trickle.
Fill a few jugs with standby water,
top up the kerosene lamps,
stack waiting books by the rocker.
Settle in for winter
