It's 5 below here on the prairie
That is cold!
But one thing we don't have at Linderhof
is frosty windows!
Even though kitchen windows and sunroom windows are one pane with no storms
They don't seem to frost up as did the windows when I was a child.
I do remember one winter when we had lots of cold and lots of snow
And the windows in our snug little house were frosted from January to Spring!
I love the delicate etchings of the frost on the window
The romantic notion of it all
But it's really better if the windows don't frost
We hunkered down in front of the fire yesterday
and took down the tree.
Today, we shall bake King's Cake
and invite brave friends for tea!
