It does not take long for our cats to notice the wood burner has been fired up. Here Molly the Maine Coon is chilling out or warming up on a wooden chest next to the wood burner. She is leaning against my "doggy bag" - a tote bag with pictures of dogs on it.
There is a wintery nip in the air today. Winter is around the corner. I went for a late morning walk up on the Wither Hills. I'm breaking in a pair of tramping boots I bought last winter but have hardly worn.
