After a long cold winter, mother nature eased up a bit this weekend. After too many -20 mornings today she decided to hit the 30s. That might not sound like much to some of you but I can guarantee that Minnesotans state-wide were smiling today. I know I was. I even got to go for a short walk in the woods, something I've really been missing.
A few shots of the beautiful day.
The girls even gained the courage to walk on the cold white stuff just to see if I might have grain in my pockets. (I didn't)
I saw a tiny little birds nest made of grass and birch paper. Birds are just so clever aren't they?
Looking at the snow on top of our log pile you would think that I'd have enough sense to stay on the trail. But no. More than once I stepped off the trail and ended up in snow up past my knees.
Without the leaves you can see our house from the woods.
I really needed that.
Happy Sunday, all.
