Wascana Creek

It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ”
–John Burroughs

Every winter, I walk by frozen Wascana Creek, and think wouldn’t it be awesome if it was turned into a skating rink!

Happy New Year

Celebrate endings, for they precede new beginnings.

Squirrel Poses

It’s not that I love squirrels, it’s just that they pose so nicely for pictures…. (and I love how it doesn’t even look like winter here in these pictures!  It was so nice to hear birds chirping and squirrels scurrying like it was Spring here on the weekend).
