"Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage."

First Day of Spring - Two Days Later

23 March 2011

It was a snowy morning on Monday - and yet it was Spring. Annie the d.o.g. (she doesn't know she is a dog) and I decided to give the snow shoes some use and took off on a walk. The daffodils were covered by snow . . .

With 3 to 4 inches of snow - it truly is a "blanket" of quiet. The only sounds we heard was the snow lightly falling from the trees as we took our walk. Snow shoes force you to pace yourself as you take slow, purposeful steps - always looking ahead to where you will place your foot.

We've had six days of snow this winter - so we take advantage of these opportunities when we can.

The air was invigorating - and it was a great way to start the morning.
