Walkin' in a winter wonderland
Yesterday we finally let Raven convince us to go for a significant walk. (see Raven's world-1) There's still snow on the ground where I live and it was a balmy 32 degrees yesterday. So I bundled up, grabbed the husband and the dogs and off we went. It was a beautiful walk through the woods. We walked along a stream that was snow covered in places with crystallized ice formations. The dogs ran free and I was finally able to breathe. We sat on some stumps as the sunshine made its way through the bare branches to warm my face. I was grateful to be able to walk in the husband's big footprints as the snow sunk down in certain places. I never doubted that Raven was right, I just needed the temp to move above freezing!
