in the clear cold air

An enjoyable winter day today, after a bitterly cold night. I hauled firewood home with a garden cart, which has been an unexpected pleasure these past few months.

And we've been seeing bald eagles lately. They come down and winter here most years, drawn by nearby unfrozen rivers, I think. This morning Heather noticed one circling overhead. Very, very high. The smooth, unhurried soaring certainly does bring to mind the word majestic.
