Last week we shared that Lady
lost her mind got brave and took us for a walk on the lake. Lady mentioned she freaked because it was a little slushy, but it was only slushy on top, it was still a good 6-8 inches thick. Don't worry, it has been a bit mild so Lady won't be going out anytime soon.
While we were down there we ran into our neighbour Callie. She wanted to play. I told her it was against Covid rules to have close contact with anyone outside your household (if you live alone you can join one other household). She said people rules are stupid and we had a bit of a play!
I have to agree with her in some ways. Yes, Covid is very serious and we need to be careful, but it is probably a very low risk activity to say hi to your neighbour from a healthy distance. It is probably good to have those brief check ins with people because this is hard, especially in the winter which is hard for everyone.
This is Man telling Callie she can't come on our walk with us.
This is looking back at the skating rink the neighbours dug out. Bertie asked if we skate and the answer is no, neither Lady nor Man skate. Lady's mom tried to get her to learn as a child but Lady just sat and cried. Snowshoeing is Lady's only winter sport.
This year has been hard, but we have been blessed with a mild winter that allows us to get out and enjoy!
