Vacation was so nice...a whole week to hunt with my honey...savor the sanctuaries of the outdoors...commune with nature and my creator...and bag 3 deer to fill our freezer with meat.
It will be interesting to check my weight tomorrow. My diet has not included much fruit or veggies this week...lots of proteins and carbs...over calories most days, but lots of exercise, stampin through the woods...we will see.
I already have some veggies ready to take to work tomorrow for lunch...more plans forthcoming...back to the job...back to healthier eating
Have a great week spark friends

No deer today, saw narry a one... but, as usual, saw other beautiful sights...
sun was shining, melting more snow... there were little snow blankets covering some of the low branches and fallen branches. As the snow dripped little drops of water, the sun shone through them to makd little rainbows...
There were little strings of cobwebs herd and there too with just enough moisture on them to sparkle too.
Then, there was another pine forest. The squirrels were squakin at me from their tree tops today,as they were soakin up their sun and i dared to walk into their santuary.
As i sat for a spell in between tramping, i again enjoyed thd sounds of the melting snow...yes, callie u can hear snow melting, as it drips little dropplets and slids off littls snow blankets. It is a beautiful site and it does make me appreciate and praise our Creator God who makes such magestic landscapes big and small...our Lord God made them all. Praise God, Praise God

Well, sucess today, my husband got a deer mid afternoon, woohoo!!
I enjoyed more tramping through the woods...
there were lots of running streams to cross, and sit beside and listen to the sounds of the babbling brook, while watching the sun shine through the trees, and listen to the chirping of the chicadees.
There was one spot where i sat down in the middle of the percusion pine forest... as i sat among the pines, the sounds of the snow melting and bouncing along the branches sounded like the woods in the percusion section. Then, there were the squirrels who cracked open the pine cones in the top of the trees and the reminence of the cones and pine nuts tumbling down added to the orchestra sound. It was truely a beautiful symphony sanctuary... i had another great day, and my husbands deer was the topper.

Deer 1, hunterwoman 0 :(
I only saw one deer today, a buck who did not have enough points/antlers to be legal, so i let him walk on... it sure got my adreneline pumpin though. I had him in my scope 3 times checking out those antlers. He didnot see me, which made it more exciting. He was just meandering through the woods, probly knew hunters couldnot shoot him.
Beautiful day in the woods, blankets of snow covered the ground and dripped off branches and trees. Gray squirrels running around the tops of trees, their bushy tails twitchin. Turkey gobblin off in the distance, and as i tramped through the snow too close for comfort, it flew off. Woodpeckers knocking on trees, searching for goodies. Birds flying around singing their songs.
I sure got my steps in today. I can only sit for so long and then i go trampin through the snow, uphill and down, crossing the creek this way and that, trudging through the drifts of snow that went half way up my leg. It sure was fun, and i was in much better shape this year thanks to spark people. My elliptical and strength training helped me lots today as i hiked in all my four layers of clothes, hunting boots and gear, while carrying or holding my 243 rifle all day.

An annual tradition for my husband and i for our past 15 years of marriage has been hunting. I look forward to it and we enjoy it together.
we went out today to set up our blind, a tent like thing, covered with woodsy camo color, sets up easily by popping up the top and four sides, big enough for our two little bucket seats and us, and a thermos of coffee in the mornin.
We walked about a mile through the woods tracking ontop of about a foot of snow, found a great spot with deer sign all around, deer tracks, bare spots where deer had curled up to sleep last night and little piles of deer poop here and there... ahh, the beauty of it all... dense woods, a little stream nearby, woodpeckers pounding out their breakfast, signs of squirrel, rabbit and other critters around, with a nice thick blanket of snow drapped over trees, branches and streams.
We came home to get all our hunting gear together, flashlights, guns, bullets,chap stick, tissues, knife, rope, snacks, lots of layers of warm clothes and thick socks to wear inside huntin boots.
I think i am ready.
we will get up at 5am and be in the blind by 6am, watch the sun rise and the woods wake up around 7... and stay in the woods till dark falls... lots of sittin, stampin and watchin, and hopefully some good shootin.
Tune in tomorrow to see what i saw...
