... and we are about to end our week-long warm spell with a winter storm. :( But it IS January after all, I guess. Moe has spent most of this past week doing his yard-warrior thing... barking at all the passers-by, doing leisurely perimeter patrols, exploring the nearby woods (our invisible fence goes through wooded areas of the yard), and sunning himself in the driveway or on the porch. Today we washed the cars and then took the dogs over to Pardon Gray Preserve near our Town Farm. We wanderd the fields, explored an old cemetary, and followed a small stream through the fields. Moe found a bone :blink: and had a quick roll in some deer-poop he discovered (before we caught him and pulled him away :eek: ). There were many smells for him to smell and we couldn't take a step without stepping in goose-poop (thankfully Moe and Tally were not interested in that particular type of poop!) We were prepared for mud and wore apprpriate footwear which worked just as well for slogging through goose-poopy fields. :p Tally found rodent holes near a big Puddingstone and more near a swampy area. She is quite a rodent-hunter! We wore them out and came home to cookies (for Moe and Tally) and hot chocolate (for us). I'm sorry our warm spell is ending. :( The only good thing about Winter is that it makes me really appreciate Spring...

Who possibly can have anything positive to say about mud season :angry:[/b]
I don't much care for mud but it IS better than frozen ground. The things I like about Spring are: fat Pussywillows, blooming crocuses (sometimes blooming through the snow), flowering trees, greening grass, growing things peeking from my garden that I forgot I even planted, happy dogs soaking up the sun and smelling of the fresh outdoors when you snuggle with them, the earthy smell of turned ground, peepers and other frog-sounds, the first warm day you open a window, hearing bees buzzing or spotting the first butterfly, feeling ALIVE and happy again! So many things to look forward to in the Spring!!!! Mud is such a VERY small part of it... :) :) :) B)
