Snow is melting!
Snow is melting!
There is a lot of snow to go...but it's starting.
The icicles off the eves are lovely and
there are patches of ground showing here and there.
It is wonderful to watch the birds and squirrels
scouring the earth for tasty bits.
Even our dog seems to find patches of clear earth to lay
down in. Then of course there is some cleaning at the door to be done.
I went out for a short hike with a couple of my children.
The snow is quite soft but on the skidoo trails
it's still quite manageable.
Even with the heavy cloud cover we could see
the distant mountains on the horizon.
I also found this cool tree at the edge of the trail.
For some reason all the texture caught my eye.
There was also this cool tree trunk with the colourization on the bottom.
It was also much bigger then it looks in the picture.
The springs are running stronger
and at one point the trail goes over them.
It's a well packed trail and will be there for quite a bit longer.
This week some cinnamon buns
were in order. this time I just used vanilla in the icing
that in the picture has melted into them.
It has been a lovely week just puttering about the home.
There are so many little things that come to
our attention as the increased sunshine
seems to stir us to action.
With changing up the top of the sewing machine
I thought that I'd add these cute little bluebirds from the hutch.
Along with the search and destroy missions on the cobwebs
it's good to dust those out of the way places we like to pretend don't
exist most of the year. It's a work in progress.
Thank you for dropping by today!
Praying you have a beautiful spring day!
Love and Prayers,
