Ignatia grew to school age.
Cadfael seems slightly surprised that she’s there.
Ignatia likes food, so is a little chubby. Winter came (the season, not the man).
It was a particularly cold one.
Yohanes continued in his monkly duties.
He wonders if his son will join him, but his son has a few years to go before he reaches adulthood. Yohanes himself grew to an elder and perhaps senility is setting in early.
Is the place sending the monks mad?
