 One of my (actually my only!) New Year's resolutions was to try to walk for at least half an hour each day.So far, I have not done very well. The weather has either been really cold, or pouring torrents of rain. We did have a few cold, sunny days in the second week of January which made keeping that resolution easy. The weather was beautiful. The farm children loved walking across the frosty yard.
 It is also fun to see seed pods and the last few frozen flowers. We could also see several nests in the leafless trees.
 The frozen fountain provided lots of amusement. The girls tried hard to break the ice, but it was frozen pretty solidly,
We ended our walk by checking in on the strawberries. The colors of the leaves are so pretty this time of year, and the plants look really healthy. Even though we are enjoying these winter days, I fund myself longing for warm, ripe strawberries! Summer seems so far away! I enjoyed another walk today, but kept my head down against the driving rain. If I wait for dry days to walk, I will not be outside again until July!


  1. We have the same resolution! Of course, here we have only had one day of winter so I am still waiting for my cold. Next time I'm out I'll be thinking of you across the country! :)

  2. I don't know... July is a very nice month. ;) I too struggle with walking when the weather is unpleasant. That means too cold, too wet, too hot... you get the idea. Good luck with the resolution. If all goes well, maybe you'll get me out~
