On this, the first day of March, I am declaring winter over. It just needs to be (never mind it’s snowing and blowing out… winter is just done). And to commemorate this long awaited day, I am looking back on the thrilling adventures Lola and I have had over these last few months. In my haste to say goodbye to the coldest of seasons, I have to recognize that it really has been a very nice winter. We’ve done an awful lot outside. The snow was good (at times) and we’ve had some really amazing bouts of sunshiney warmness (relatively speaking).
I feel so lucky to share in these joyful days of wonder and exploration with my girl. She’s quite a trooper, this one.
A walk on the beach back in early January. It was so cold and the tide was so low. There were frozen sea stars all over the beach, dozens of them. While it seemed like they must certainly be dead… we really didn’t know. Lola went on a mission to put them all back in the water. Just incase.
When the work was done, we scampered off into the shelter of the forest to play amongst the furry critters, who clearly had the same idea.
