Well, I took some inspiration and encouragement from a fellow Sparker and went on a wintry walk today!
I bundled up like Nanook of the North( seriously, with long john's, long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, jeans, coat, hat,boots and gloves!) and took my dog, Shadow (a black lab mix) for a mile walk
It was cold, but the lightly falling snow was actually peaceful and we got a really nice surprise and reward. At one point we walked along a street that parallels the railroad tracks and there across the street and on the other side of the tracks were four beautiful deer grazing for what they could find in the snow.
They all stopped and looked up at us and watched us as we continued on our way. I know they were keeping on eye on Shadow, but it sure looked like they were thinking, " What's that crazy human doing walking her dog in this?"
Anyway, it was a lovely walk that turned out to be good for my spirit as well as my soul.
