the snow is crunchy and full of ice, but it felt good to get outside.
we spotted evidence of the raccoon and i told the dog to be careful;
although his bark is pretty dang convincing, to all within hearing distance,
that they best get out of his space.
at least it is not a bear, we have had a few in the carport, over the years.
crunchy snow, all of us singing to Neil Diamond in rowing class, the smell of peppermint tea, our holly trees, understanding and calmness, heated car seats, cilantro and tacos, faith in myself and thumping dog tails.
