Let Your Love Light Shine on St. Paddy's Day!
Today was a GLORIOUS St. Paddy's day~ the sun shined down on us, warming the temps to the lower 60's. It was a perfect day for a walk with Igor, so leash and plastic pooh-bag in hand, we headed out.
A flock of Sand Hill Cranes circled overhead, a cacophony of happy birds looking for new nesting spots, and returning couples ready to setup housekeeping at familiar nesting sites. The pond still has a thin glaze of ice left over from long winter months, a family of Canadian geese lounged on the edges waiting for a break. Soon, the pond will be alive with the sounds of bullfrogs, peepers, cranes and geese. We'll enjoy an occasional Painted turtle as it crosses the road to find a nesting site down in the reeds.
Life begins anew in our little corner of the world, as we celebrate Spring with a jig in our step and a song in our hearts. ♥
We topped off our day with a Corned beef on pumpernickel rye, sauerkraut, aged Swiss and a healthy dollop of 1000 island dressing, griddle pan-fried, with a side of boiled buttered potatoes.
