Today was non-stop in the kitchen, making goodies. Foul weather does that to me. This is the main reason the Sheepfarmer does not mind Winter; I keep the hearth warm and the food abundant. Warm bellies are far more tolerant to cold.
Unfortunately...Winter had an encore today. I now understand where that saying comes from as I literally keep the fires burning and the cuisine warm, the food and fuel (both) plentiful.

Note the burners. Charcoaled wood used to be inserted by a hole on the side, see bottom photo. This is another photo of the wall…with lovely glass jars in which I had preserved cêpes.
