It has been cold on Gothic Hill. Here is a picture of my little house that I took this morning:
The cold snap has also caused me to take drastic measures regarding my chickens. I noticed that they (there are two of them) stopped eating for a day and their combs were looking as though they might be getting frostbitten. I brought them in to live in my cellar until the weather warms up. When I went to check them tonight, they had escaped the area I had tried to limit them to and were perched on the washing machine. I think this makes me officially eccentric.
