A little o' this, a little o' that

Snow again!

Wheee!!  We had another decent snow last night–two or three inches I’d say.  It was icy coming down (you could hear the flakes as they hit the ground in a tinkling hiss), and came with a brief thunderstorm (a few lightening flashes and some thunder–such a weird occurance, snow and thunder), but then the clouds passed and the moon came out–magical!  There’s been some melting today, but most of the snow stuck around for the whole day since it’s been so cold.  I love it. 

I took Farley for a walk over to the park by the river and let him run around in the snow.  He wanted me to throw the ball, but when I did he didn’t bring it back to me.  Game over.  So we just tromped around the ball field and through the path to the river.  The rocky beach was snow covered, and there were a few patches of ice on the river in the spots where the water slows to a stop (Farley had to get to the water in just these spots it seemed). 

We didn’t see any of the Merganser couples today, though I did see a solitary Western Grebe (big birds!).  They’re even shyer than the Mergansers and look gigantic when they fly.  We also saw a Bald Eagle, which is pretty common though always a thrill.  They are so huge; there’s really nothing else like them, with their broad, slow wing strokes at tree top level. 

When I’m out on these walks with Farley I realize often that I have a smile on my face.  I think it’s always there, and I probably look “simple” to the people in the cars whizzing by on the road, but I can’t help myself.  I especially notice it when I see something extra, like the eagle.  It intensifies the joy I already feel and I find I have to smile even wider.   How could you not smile at such an amazing world?
