The Wolf Moon, the January full moon, shone over our house this week. According to country wisdom you should still have half your firewood left when the Wolf Moon is full. We do! The wood pile is ornamented with snow and ice, but there is plenty to get us through the winter, and those cool, damp spring evenings.
The freezer also contains a good ration of our blueberries and strawberries, as well as the chickens that we raise for meat every year. There is great pleasure in feeling the security we built for ourselves in the easy days of summer.
