This evening I took my own advice and walked in the woods. Earlier today we had sun, but the rain clouds were moving in so it was overcast and a little cool but with temperatures in the 50s it was still comfortable. The trail through the woods is actually mostly a loop that will take the traveler up, along, and then down the ridge that the woods reside on. It is probably a mile of trail but it is "real" trail with obstacles like rocks, sticks, soft earth from rodents digging, and a fallen tree or two. I surprised at least one turkey and about six deer. I'm also discovering the muscles that support my knees. It was a good walk and I'm going to try to do it *carefully* every day I'm home until the mosquitoes get too thick for sanity.
I was informed that Fuzzle doesn't get much face time on this blog, so here is a paw-washing photo or two from this afternoon.
I've done a little change-around here at Purling Oaks to try to lighten things up. Spring is here, you know. Really.
