We've been walking this road now for over 15 years, each year noting the changes -- how the trees have grown (heck, we planted many of them! LOL), how every few years we need to regrade, the way the wildlife has come back after each family built on some of its acreage, how more or less traffic travels the road, how each year changes the deer and turkey and fox populations, how few or more children, dogs, cats, and now chickens greet us as we walk.
It's a quiet road, peaceful as we like it, and we pray it remains that way in our often frenetic world.
As my own cats have grown and have begun to roam away from our porch, our birds are returning to the feeders -- a much appreciated sight!
The snow that was originally predicted for Tuesday has changed paths (thusfar), so it looks like mild weather is in store. Our temps are due to be in the 60s today, and though I'll be researching and writing, we'll take this inviting walk today, simply to be outdoors in it!
I hope your day is restive!
