on the Island
Today is cool and cloudy.
Banging, rattling and thumping sounds are coming from the roof.
It’s chimney cleaning day.
Well, we’ll have to wait a bit for a cheery fire in the woodstove.
But there’s a warm spicy fragrance flooding the kitchen.
Cloves, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and raisins simmering on the stove top.
Hard-working chimney sweeps need the occasional treat.
