It's the last day of 2005.
I am making a complicated Italian bread for a party later on today and Eugene is turning compost piles.
the weather is damp grey and cool, above freezing but not by much. there is a stiff SW breeze making it rather raw outside unless you are moving.
The pond is melting. I tossed a 2 pound rock through the ice this morning. It caused some air bubbles to cruise to the edge of the ice than disappear. Tried tossing smaller rocks through the ice but they were not heavy enough and sat on top.
