On Wednesday I had to get out of the house, couldn't stand staying cooped up. It was like I had ants in my pants.
So we once again drove to Lake Marie, where we were last Saturday, when it snowed a little. This time it was sunny and warm, still not much green to be seen though. Soon this pathway will be overgrown like a jungle, full of mosquitoes.
Even though it still looks all dead and brown, there are some signs that Spring is here. A pair of Canada geese have a nest in there somewhere, and this time they were quiet like a church mouse.
The only really pretty shade of green was this one tree, with it's soft long needles. Oh hush, I don't know it's name, I'm glad I know it's a tree, and I know grass is grass, so I'm no botanist. What's in a name? When I see something beautiful I enjoy it.
Happy was really excited to be out there again. And I was quite proud, when he made a wee spritz twice! You see, so far he NEVER pee's or poops when out and about, he always holds it in until we get home, so this was progress!
The lake was still frozen, although it was soft ice on top. I expect it's more solid today, since we've got -9C this morning.
By the way, Happy hates his harness. Whenever I grab it to put it on him, he runs away at first. He also hates car rides, but I'm determined to show him, that a car ride has much fun at the end (mostly).
The short hike was lovely. Wind was blowing softly, the sun was warm, but not yet too hot, it opened up my soul, and blew out all the sadness.
