My cabin in winter

I hadn't been to the cabin for a long time, and I figured it would be a good idea to check on things back there.  Lots of mouse poison has been consumed, and recycled into mouse poop all over the tops of my Books Of Knowledge, and on the floor near one batch of poison.  I don't know where the mice went to die, but I didn't see any carcasses. 

It's amazing that a place can be so lovely in spring, summer and fall, and so forboding and desolate on a day like this.  Mandy wasn't put off by the seasonal weather; every atom of her being was looking for excitement.  She was SO happy when I told her we were "going to the cabin", she started whining at me to hurry; and she wasn't ready to leave when I told her we were going back to the house, but she reluctantly followed.

Well, the view from inside makes it clear why you have a cabin!  ;)  -  Barbara

The desolate looking days are my favorite!  :)  It's dark and cloudy looking here, but umm...not so cold.  I'll bet we're going to be able to do our usual trip to the beach for Christmas Day here.....

So you did get a little snow. Great pictures. I like the ones looking out over the river bottoms. Mandy looks as she has spotted something of interest. Where is her Buddy friend? Helen

The view from your windows is awesome!  I don't envy you the cold though.  Just something I never became accustomed to.  Many blessings and Merry Christmas, Penny

Any cabin is a good cabin...A little heat and the place will be good as new. <ha>
Wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Everything looks desolate this time of year.  Maybe you need a cabin cat to handle the mouse problem....certainly better than toxic chemicals.
