Willow got to romp with the curly redheads of the Good Girls’ Club the other day. They had lots of fun running on our muddy roads. Willow hopes to get her official invite into the Good Girls’ Club soon. Next time they get together, Willow will be taller than Rozie, that for sure. Sky felt old, watching them run up and down and refused to be in any photos.

We have had a January thaw with rain and permanently gray skies, giving us a premature mud season. This morning, everything is frozen so winter should get back to normal soon.

Almost Spring. Mud Season. That time when the snow is no longer fresh and fun and where the ground is exposed, it is muddy. Some days it seems like the melt is coming quickly and then it snows again. We received six inches of heavy wet snow a couple days ago. The new stuff is mostly gone but there is still at least a foot of snow in the untrammeled areas and way more where it’s been piled up over the winter. New snow delays the onset of Spring. Some mornings the snow is frozen and easy to walk across. Not today. According to the calendar, spring arrives next weekend.

Receding snow reveals things left behind last fall – the extra dog water dish, last year’s flowers, detritus from the fire. It also reveals new growth and signs of Spring. Just try to keep your feet dry.
