Dog Days of Winter


I felt quite smug when I took this picture a few weeks ago.  It was a balmy Provençal afternoon in early January.  I had the kitchen door open and Owen lazed comfortably in the warming sun.  A far cry from my winter days in Denver, Chicago or New York.

Complacency be damned.  It is currently -5ºC and this house wasn’t made for below zero mornings!  I’d happily take a log cabin, burning fire and hot pot of coffee in the snowy mountains right now.  The romanticism that Provence exudes is but a frozen, distant memory on mornings like this!
