The Sun! The Sun!

The sun has FINALLY been shining and I've been making the most of it. The temps are a little warmer (still below freezing) but I'm been getting out taking advantage of the break in the snow and cloud. It's really surprising how a little sunshine can make you feel a lot better. The other day the sky was so blue that sitting indoors it was a little hard to fathom that it was still only in the single digit F (well below minus C).

The birds were out and about when I went for a walk down at Asylum Lake.


The lake is still well frozen and snow covered. 


You can see all the tracks where the ice fishermen are going out trying to catch a little something.  

I have to admit I've spent more time out walking than I should have - until I really couldn't stand any more of the cold lol - but when the snow comes and the roads are bad I don't get out as much. Obviously this has meant not getting as much done around the house and crafting as I had hoped. I did get some of the kitchen cupboards sorted which was on my list, but the rest of my list is untouched. Sigh. I have kept up with the housework and cooked (mostly) from the cupboards so haven't spent a lot of money.

  1. I was thinking the same today as I walked back from the barn after doing the chores - it was so sunny and beautiful out - this is why we love living in north central WI. I worked on a few things yesterday and today. Not cleaning tho...that's always last on my list!

  3. You know what they say Sharon....make hay while the sun shines and it's a pity to be stuck indoors if you'd rather be out.
    Those fishermen are very brave...I wouldn't dare walk on a frozen lake.

    1. I couldn't bring myself to walk on it. Drowning is a really big fear of mine. I don't even like walking on the wooden planks on a pier if it goes over water lol.

  4. Definitely take advantage of the sunshine to go to walks outside! You can do the housework on a rainy/snowy day!
