The Changing North
Winterfaire 2016 is now open! Do you have goods or services that would make a good holiday gift? Come post a booth! Are you shopping for hard-to-find items? Come look at the offerings, or post what you're hunting. Do you have a holiday shopping post, or know of one? Give me links and I'll cross-list them.
The half-price sale in Shiv has SOLD OUT! *fanfare* *confetti* You are all awesome and I squish you so much. <3 So now I have a HUGE backlog of poetry to post that I will get to when I can. To see recently posted poems, visit the sale page, as they're all linked from the titles.
As a result of selling out, you get a free mega epic. Here is the poll, for those of you who donated or linked to the sale.

The weather has been variable. Currently it's raining, but warmer than previous days. This is good because we still have no heat other than the woodstove and kerosene heater, and also can't get more firewood until Friday. I remain disgusted by America's inability to ensure even the most basic survival needs. Birdfeeder traffic is increasing, mostly medium-sized flocks of sparrows, although I've also seen more mourning doves.
