The slow days of winter

Happy New Year! 

There's the old saying, "Don't quit your day job". Most days I'm glad I haven't, but then I get a wonderful day off like today (Martin Luther King, Jr.) and then all of a sudden, I wish I could work at home all of the time. Today was a good day for reflection, rest, and wishful dreams for the upcoming season.  I spent the day finalizing seed/plant purchases, checking in with the local feed and seed...and for a real treat, I stopped by some local farm equipment places to look at RTVs!  I even got to test drive one...really nice!  


Even on the bleakest of winter days, like today, there is still always something to marvel at or reflect upon:

watching the dog chase something

watching the cat hit the dog

watching the dog hit the cat

watching the winter birds

looking hard at the air to see if what is falling is frozen

walking through with woods (properly dressed with blaze orange...just in case) 

And when there is a snowfall? Oh, yeah! As long as the power doesn't go out...still haven't gotten that wood stove yet.
