A nice, quiet day

This is my first Saturday off in a while, and it's been so quiet and relaxing. Amazingly, the dogs have been quiet and well behaved today. So far. I've been enjoying the mild weather of this January thaw, except it does have a couple of drawbacks. The snow is looking blah, and, with the melting, every time the dogs go outside, their paws are getting wet and muddy. Small price to pay to be out of the "deep freeze".

I've been enjoying my day off. Caught a couple of movies on tv, checking in the blogs here. Dogs are sleeping right now. My German Shepherd snores when he gets into a deep sleep. Days like this makes me wish it already were Spring. But, it's only January 16 and Spring isn't till March 21/22..so about 2 months of Winter to trudge through yet. Yeah, this time of year is trying for me. The "big" holiday season is over and there isn't really much to look forward to except for Spring. And not just because of the warmer weather, but, because I like watching the world around me "wake up". Trees budding, the birds singing, grass turning green, it's a tranquil transition to watch. Then one day, you realize, the trees have their leaves, a nice, bright, shiny new set of leaves. Spring flowers are blooming, showing off their color, and the earth looks "alive" again. I like the feeling of "newness" of Spring. A whole new generation of wildlife will soon be born, and baby animals are just so cute to watch. The wildlife refuge here will be muddy, but, it's a nice place to go for walks and to observe nature at it's best.

I can hardly wait..I've missed my walks on the trails.

I don't want to wish time away, but I will be very happy when spring arrives again! I want to get back on the lake and paddle in my kayak... really miss that during the winter.

I'm glad you are having a well deserved day off and enjoying yourself.

I thought that you would be watching the Wings take on the Stars.

But then it wouldn't be a "quiet" day.

Nawaaaa- as one Michigander to another who loves the winter (that be you ), I'm looking for 12 feet of snow, lots of ice and sub-zero weather for a few months yet- how about you??

You could always ask Griz how much property sells for in Minnesota.

Myself, I'm looking forward to warm weather, sun, birds singing...opening the windows to let some fresh air in this house.

I haven't even had a chance to get out and enjoy our thaw. I've been working my ass off getting things rearranged. I finished everything I set out to do....made that curtain, hung those pictures, finished the exercise room....and revamped some stuff in the laundry room.

I AM DONE!!

I even worked on my manuscript "Selling Point" for a while.

First I rest then since this thaw is lasting another week...lucky me...I'm gonna go on a day trip next week...just cause I can.

It's been sunny and mild in Vancouver today.
But we so deserve this weather after a week of it raining cats and dogs.
