Kuma was with me and she loves sleeping in front of the fire on the hearth rug. I opened a small bottle of wine but hadn't finished a glass before falling into a deep sleep in my new chair.
After waking long enough to throw another log on the fire and to move to the sofa, I was quickly back to sleep. At around 3 am, a pack of coyotes began howling right behind the cabin. If you've never heard them or knew what you were hearing, they'd scare you to death in the middle of the night. They howl like sirens with a modulating pitch up and down. When there is more than one, they sound like something off "The Lost Boys". Kuma d.o.g. was scared to death. Then again, it doesn't take much to scare her as she's a big baby.
After taking the bin of squirrel food to the porch for filling the feeders, I got distracted and forgot to fill them before heading back into town. Upon my return, they had 'broke in' to it, and cleaned it out. The little impatient rodents have no appreciation for all I do for them.
|The new recliner is just what we needed for sitting in front of the fire.|
|I don't remember why I didn't finish the glass of wine before falling asleep.|
|With the cabin unplugged, there is still plenty of light sources to make it comfortable.|
|The candles in the window are battery powered LED with wax and flicker flames.|
Much safer than actual candles. They come on at dusk and stay lit for 5 hours.
|The beautiful deer mount is over 23 years old. Such a proud, majestic beast he was.|
|The bear candle flickers in step with the fire.|
|Another view from the recliner.|
|Kuma d.o.g. loves to sleep on the hearth rug.|
|The kitchen table reminds me of Little House on the Prairie. A perfect setting|
for eating soup beans and corn bread made by Beulah.
|The little rodents couldn't wait for my return to fill their feeders.|
