On This Imbolc

Imbolc arrived, and as a sucker for tradition, I took off work early to collect wood. Sadly, it was a beautiful day and I collected plenty of wood.

Morning has broken

Started with coffee and a cold frosty feather

Yes, it is cold

Chilling with sheep

The large pile of collected wood

Evening arrives

Prepping dinner

braised duck and fractals

Cooking on the small pile of collected wood

Oh, some steel shot in the duck

Enjoying the fire

The warmth was nice, and pipes were played. Hey, look at that cob rocket stove in the background. For some reason, I am not super excited to work with freezing cold mud.
