"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet." -Collette

Blue skies today! It's amazing what rays of sun on your face will do to you. After an almost sleepless night of tossing and turning (I even woke up at four in the morning and made warm milk with honey) it was a joy to step outside into the cold but sunny morning. I took a new path in the forest which I'm pretty sure is overgrown in summer; there are advantages to winter time! Kiki chased cawing ravens, and in the woods where it has been so quiet the past few days, there were birds singing. Could it be that they sing because the sun is shining? 
Yesterday we walked with a local woman and her dog, and she told me about the nearby garden of which you can rent a piece for the growing and harvesting season. The farmer enriches the soil, takes good care of it, and plants rows and rows of vegetables and flowers. Each person is then responsible for weeding, watering, and harvesting their piece. It seems like a wonderful idea since we don't have our own garden at the new apartment. There are pieces of garden available for 40 euros, and larger ones for 80 euros. I am definitely going to try to get us a piece!
