Winter Walk

It snowed about 10" here Friday. While Pappa Bear was running to Waconia for ATV parts Sat. afternoon, I stole some time to tromp around the yard in my snowshoes, which have gotten very little use the last few winters. First, I walked around the perimeter of the pasture. They boys were wondering what this new curious thing the Hooman was doing. The Boys When I would stop to snap their photo, they would look away as if to say, "Who, me?" Who, me? Boo has gotten so much more courageous, from being too timid to leave Honeywiese's side, to being the first one to come up and investigate my snowshoes. After leaving the pasture, I headed across the yard towards the back woods. Hard to believe only a month and a half ago we were all sitting around a roaring bonfire on a balmy late-fall night watching the stars pop out. Don't you just love how shadows in a snowy woods are all blue/grey/purply? More beautiful than any hooman-decorated Christmas tree. Just past this fringe of woods are fields and more farms. As with many things in my life lately, it all begins, and ends, on a farm. Blessings -
