Almost Spring!!

Saturday looked like a really nice day up here in God's Country, sunny and 50's, so Arlene, Mary, Tiny and I loaded up the old Blazer and headed to camp. The road in was a little treacherous but we made it to our gate. I tried to drive in to camp but the snow is still too deep. Maybe by next weekend, we will be able to drive in.

Mary and I shoveled out the firepit and I got us some lawn chairs so that we could sit and enjoy the sunshine.

It was almost too warm to sit in the sun. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and just sat and visited all afternoon. I did my favorite task, which is to split wood for the fire and keep it going.

After awhile, everyone was hungry so we cooked hot dogs over the fire. Why is is that the first hot dog cooked over the campfire tastes the best. Yumm.

We had Potato Chips and sliced Colby/Jack cheese, and Reese's Peanut Butter cups for dessert. It was a feast. As the afternoon wore on, it got a little chilly so we let the fire go out and packed up. On the way out we saw 4 deer and two big turkeys and a big skunk. It is unusual to see a skunk out in an open field in the middle of the afternoon

We are hoping for good weather next weekend so that we can stay the night.

Good to know the snow is going. My aunt and uncle are headed up to their summer place soon and they are hoping the snow is gone. I think they might be out of luck with that though.

Looks like a heavenly way to spend an afternoon. We've had snow almost every morning this week, it seems, but it was dry this morning, so there's hope! Come on, spring!

That looked like a lot of fun to be back in the woods again. Peace and quiet. Glad you all enjoyed your time there. Take care! :)
PS: Check out the deer on my site running from the swollen MS River!

There is something so wonderful about snowy woods on a sunny day, isn't there?
