The snow and ice are
goneor not, wait five minutes – it will change, from the sidewalks and lawns and we are trying to get back to our regular routine of the walking every night.
This picture was taken at 8PM. Two hours later, the ground is completely covered with snow. Whee! Every minute of every day is a new adventure!!
After dinner and cleaning up the kitchen, as soon as someone says the word “Walk”, Baaj’s ears perk up and he starts to pace.
It has always taken us forever to get out the door, we need jackets, does anyone need to go the bathroom? should I wear a hat? has anyone seen my other glove? and then finally our shoes need to go on and we all crowd around the back door. The entire time this is going on, Baaj sits at high alert, watching our every move and hoping that we are indeed going for a walk and that he is invited.
As soon as the back door opens and he hears the magic words “Let’s go”. He proceeds to sniff and spray every available tree, bus shelter, fence, blade of grass, twig……. He is a study in bliss. We try to do a loop of approximately 5kms and I’m sure he does twice that amount darting from smell to smell.
Last night, at dusk, as we stopped to let Baaj sniff ALL THE THINGS, we happened to look up and there, dancing across the sky, were the Northern Lights. It was so beautiful just to be still for a few moments and watch.
