01:00, a rain event woke me up. gusty winds, hard rain. only last for a little while. 0.15"
07:05, 51F, north wind in gusts, 5knts. partly cloudy, sunny. guard dog in yard. pancakes for breakfast!
noon, 58F, wind from north less than 10 knts. moved some plants inside. added wheelbarrow of wood to pile in front. covered camillias, gave kiko a quilt, built a fire, picked as many tangerines as I could reach for friends..
16:30, 54F, wind's died down. fried oysters for supper. chore time.
19:00, 45F, calm. venus brilliant in the west. waxing gibbous moon and jupiter traversing the heavens together tonight. got it all done - hay, feed, dripping 10 outdoor spigots since the forecast is for the mid-20's and the dogs stripped the insulation from the spigots years ago.. fireplace's going at a simmer, cat's asleep on the couch, and I'm ready to relax with a book on mythology..
