with winter coming, the days are getting colder and today is the is the frist real cold snap we have had.. having worked the weekend i have taken the day off. sitting inside a warm house while the weather turns bad is awesome , i am a cold weather person. i plan to spend the day with hot drinks and a book and listening to the rain on the roof .. in my pile of books i have a Robert Burns book of poems , it is an old book and it is my favorite, it has an inscription inside dated 1910 and the copyright 1892…..
the wintry west extends his blast,
and hail and rain does blaw;
or the stormy north sends driving forth
the blind sleet and snaw:
while , tumbling brown , the burn comes down,
and roars frae bank to brae;
and bird and beast in covert rest,
and pass the heartless day.
