Good morning everyone! Coffee is ready, just grab a cup and help yourself! It is such a nice morning, it actually stayed above freezing for us last night, just what we needed to help melt that snow faster. And this morning some rain to help it out too. There really isn’t much snow left now. I went for a walk to the river yesterday afternoon, there were two places where the snow was still 12 inches (30cm) deep, but most places were between 4 and 6 inches (10 to 15cm) deep. A lot of places there is no snow at all, especially closer to the river. Looking across the street from where I live there really isn’t much snow at all. Well, actually, I can’t see any snow across the street, not even a tiny bit, looks very nice that way.
Still some snow in this yard, but not much. Spring. Such a beautiful time of the year. The cold harshness of winter gives way to the vibrant new life, growth and hope of spring. Birds are everywhere again flying through the trees. Ravens are building their nests. Canada jays are sitting on eggs in their warm and cozy nests. They might even have young ones already. Most of the path was soft, water was flowing down the rocks and hills. But there was also ice. Slippery ice. I found some of that ice.
A small patch of ice on fairly level ground. Suddenly both my feet were gone from under me and I went down with a hard thud. I just lay there. In a lot of pain. That was just beyond the bench where I usually sit. I decided to go just a bit further than normal to see how the path was doing. I’ll stay away from the section for awhile yet I think. So I had my entire walk back to do after that fall. It was slow going. By the time I got back home it was time to lie down, my back was complaining a lot by then. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
