Spring Fever

Dinner is in the crockpot--white beans and sausage--the kids are off to school, there is a pile of dirty dishes in the kitchen, and I am in sore need of a shower.

However, two mourning doves perched on the telephone wire outside confirmed for me that I need to get outside, NOW. It's absolutely beautiful out: sunny with white whispy clouds, enough of a wind to shake the fuzzies off the trees (cottonwood, brown crunchy leaves), and an early morning sparkle that can only happen the morning after a good spring rain.

Time for Lady and me to get moving.

Enjoy your walk outdoors. It's a grey, cold day here. We made maple cookies to warm ourselves.

Yum. We usually go for oatmeal or molasses cookies when we need warming up.
