Sunday was a
lazy lonely day. I woke to snow falling, which didn’t cease until several inches more lay on the ground.
Saturday I climbed at the gym & intended to be active again yesterday, but movies, lounging & knitting [& re-knitting] made up much of my day until Dave gently coaxed me over the phone into taking a hike.
Trudging through a good foot-&-a-half to two feet of snow is generally not my idea of a good time, & I soon considered retreating. Eisley’s “crazy dog”-sprints back & forth made me laugh & the fresh air invigorated me, so there was no turning back just yet. The photographer in me even hibernated. I just wanted to enjoy being out with Eis.
She coaxed me straight up the steep hill into the woods though there is a perfectly good trail that meanders more gradually. This perfectly good trail waaas hidden by the snow, offering us a blank canvas. Though her route might not have been my first choice, I had to follow her child-like excitement as we broke first tracks. She charged halfway up the hill, turned & looked as if to say, “hurry, follow me, mom!” When I met her, she even pounced at me playfully. Everyone should be blessed with this type of companionship.
Eisley does not always love the snow, but yesterday she sprang, dashed & rolled in the white powder.
I do not always love the snow either, but I guess it is growing on both of us.
p.s. Guess who will be home today?!! Expect next post to be short & sweet. 😉
Do you like playing in the snow?
