A day for reflection today. We were to have a walk with our friend Kay this morning, but before we got out, it started to rain and it has hardly stopped all day. So it's a perfect time for looking back at the blog for last year at this time. The temperature was a good ten degrees colder then and we were still in the clutches of the 'big chill'. As a result, we were experiencing a 'Waxwing Winter'.
