11/15/2015: I spent the day helping friends construct a yurt, unexpectedly, and it felt great to not only be useful, but to be outside among good people for an entire afternoon.
11/16/2015: Carved another afternoon off in favor of more yurt building on a brisk, windy day, and my only regret is that I can’t go back and help out more tomorrow.
11/17/2015: Solo road trip to Bozeman to see Nikki Lane at the Filling Station, an opportunity I couldn’t pass up based solely on the size and dumpiness of that hole-in-the-wall joint.
11/18/2015: Despite decades of driving on them, every year my first encounter with snow and ice-covered roads finds me with a deep sense of trepidation as I set out.
11/19/2015: It was windy and cold today as I went outside in the morning to fill the bird feeders, but the beeves in the adjoining field and the V of geese overhead didn’t seem to mind much.
11/20/2015: When The Hunger Games franchise started, what they failed to tell you it actually meant was that each subsequent installment would leave you hungrier and hungrier for a better movie.
11/21/2015: I almost managed to pull off a day where I didn’t make a single trip into Missoula, and even though I ultimately went, it didn’t take away from the joys of spending (most of) the day puttering around on the home front.
