ONE OF OUR FRONT YARD BLACK SQUIRRELS
It was just before noon when I tipped myself back in my recliner and blissfully became unconscious for about half an hour. By doing that I unintentionally missed something. What I missed only happens four times a year and has something to do with the Equinox. I missed the coming of Spring of course which occured about 12:15. Well no matter, the important thing is that Spring has officially arrived. Now just as soon as old man Winter relinquishes his hold on our area I’m sure a collective ‘YAAAAY' will be heard throughout the land.
SOME ROADS ARE BEST AVOIDED DURNING WINTER MONTHS

Starting off any day in a slow poke mode like watching TV or reading doesn’t work for me. It has a tendency for setting the day’s pace and I’ve been known to go from slow to slower. Have to at least get outside and go somewhere, anywhere, so with that thought in mind again Pheebs and I headed east this time wandering some local gravel roads east and south of Clinton. Even managed a nice walk in the Bannockburn Conservation Area on our way back to Bayfield. It was kinda breezily cold but at least old Sol’s warming rays were reaching us when not in the shade. I think we even made it above the freezing mark by a couple degrees today too. I’ve had to wear my lined winter pants ever since we got home from the South. Our snow pack is slowly melting but the key word there is ‘slowly’.

Sometimes I sit here at the computer for the longest time trying to think of something to write about. Can’t seem to get it through my head when that occurs I should simply not write anything. Sounds simple enough. Don’t know why I have to complicate it so much………
