Daddy has been using the Black Chewing Monster to cut up wood for our wood stove. He also moved the Snow Eating Monster from the storage building to the garage. There are big spoons on the deck to shovel the white stuff, when it comes down. Mistrie's bed (two of them) are up in the woodshed, tucked back in. One is a blue blanket someone left here from the Nap-A-Thon, the other is a yellow blanket. Daddy still is going to build her an insulated bed, to replace one that goes under the deck. It will be warmer, Momma says. I guess that means we are ready for A State of Winter in Idaho.
