snell wuntry days
cailleachs
wi fire-en-tartan legs




cold wintry days
old ladies
with fireside-tartan legs

(fireside-tartan: a blotched pattern
on the legs from sitting too close to the fire)

  1. I love this one. As if from another world! The 'fire' of eternal life getting closer...?

  3. I think that some older gentleMEN also like sitting close to the fire!?

    Today morning I made a fire in our stove and nearly burnt my finger! I was a little bit careless. Not any more harm, and now we have warm here inside; out there is -8 C. Windy weather, too. Some snow, not too much. Just fine!
