At this time of year the days seem to run into each other.
Going to work when it is dark and arriving home to darkness soon after is the norm. Our days are starting to stretch out a bit, but not too much.
Our weather flip flops from warm one day to cold the next. Clothes on the line in January? Yes, that happened this weekend. My bees tried to chase me away from the line and it isn't even that close to their hive. Today we are back to cold temps and winter coats.
Early evenings by the fire mean time to recharge for the upcoming busy springtime.
"Winter is a season of recovery and preparation."
