I'll be honest with you. After four years of living in the deep south, it's hard to convince me to head outdoors when it's below freezing. This morning was only 7 degrees when I bundled up to go feed the chickens and bunnies. I don't usually have company on these chilly mornings…. just a few sets of eyes watching from the sun-room. Not even Maggie would come out with me this morning. Make sense, southern puppy-dog and all.
But every now and then the weather warms and we do get out for a walk. And every now and then the younger two get a case of cabin fever and I have to bundle them up and drag them out despite temperatures in the teens. It's harder to be annoyed at your brother when you have 8 layers of clothing on and you're sliding on frozen puddles. True fact of life there. Of course, I think the magic that a frozen woods offers also helps…..
